Trekking in the Zillertal Alps
Easily accessable from Innsbruck the Zillertal region offers marvellous options for short or long mountain treks. This guide describes one of the longer routes but can easily be adapted by visitors on shorter trips to the region.
Located in the Austrian Tyrol of the eastern Alps spanning the Austrian–Italian border, the Zillertal embraces stunning green valleys headed by scores of shapely peaks of rock and snow. The beauty of the Zillertal cannot be overstated, with its superb scenery and excellent huts.
This guide describes the classic Zillertal Rucksack Route, which traverses the very best of the range. It links together eight huts along good tracks without having to cross glaciers, providing a continuous tour of around ten to twelve days.
En route the tour provides ample opportunity to climb some of the peaks adjacent to the huts. The route is ideal for groups of mixed ability and as a venue for that first alpine season as it avoids having to contend with the demands of the higher mountains of the western Alps. Whatever your aspirations the Zillertal will not disappoint you.
