With our hiking guide

Guided hikes

Since the summer of 2016, we have been offering guided hikes to our ZillerSeasons guests. Our certified mountain guide will take you to your very own "hiking hot spots" and show you unique natural spectacles and vantage points with a special character!

Experience & discover

Beauty of nature

While you fully indulge in the beauty of our natural and cultural landscape, your hiking guide always keeps an eye on the schedule, the weather, and the hiking route. We offer easy, medium, and difficult hikes. In addition, this is the perfect opportunity to learn interesting facts about the Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park or find out about the surrounding environment. Outside we can really switch off and be children again!
