The Tyrol: hiking paradise in Austria

A saying goes: ‚If you embark on a journey, you always have plenty to tell afterwards.’ There would be a lot to tell regarding the topic of ‚the Tyrol’. Starting with the picturesque scenery located between mountains and valleys for instance. Or the breaks on a wooden bench amidst unspoilt nature. Not to forget the culinary delights, which are hearty, since the Tyroleans have a reputation to be hungry all the time. Tyrolean ‚Käsespätzle’, smoked ham and Schnaps are only a few of the regional specialities. Served with a heart-felt smile the most simple slice of buttered bread can taste like a Michelin-starred dish.

During your trekking tour between mountains and valleys you get the chance to get some peace and recharge your batteries.
