Hiking Along the Eagle Walk in Tirol

Enjoying the same perspective as an eagle in flight, you'll be rewarded with sweeping views over valleys, mountains and mountain chains. Walking along this high-Alpine trail opens up new and unique perspectives.
Hike from the east to the west, through all of Tirol. The route, which takes in 33 different stages over 413km, is in the shape of an eagle with its wings outstretched over the high-Alpine world. The change in altitude over the entire trail is around 31,000m, but each individual stage runs at a similar altitude. You’ll often feel as though you’re floating over everything. Regardless of whether you’re planning to walk the entire trail, or just conquer a single mountain chain,  planning a leisurely ramble through gorgeous nature or looking to bag a number of peaks, you’re guaranteed whole new outlooks and insights. The longer you’re under way, the more you can take in all the rich variety of the mountainous arena. The Eagle Walk is split up into two main parts. A 24-day walk will take you straight through North Tirol’s mountains, whereas a 9-day stage represents the most beautiful way to get between Austria’s highest mountains – the Grossglockner and the Grossvenediger.
