Long-distance hiking paths in Osttirol

Enjoy peace and tranquillity far away from rush and stress.

Set out on a journey on foot and get to know the mountains and valleys of the Lienz region intensely and close-up along various routes, partly also on the territory of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The wonderful view, the good air, the sports exercise and calling in at chalets and inns – all of this comes together as an unforgettable experience on a long-distance hike.

But what makes the routes through Osttirol so special? Their landscape. This endless wildness that can only still be found rarely in the Alps. This lonesomeness that the hiker goes through when leaving the few settlements behind and hikes ever deeper into the partly high alpine wilderness. Surrounded by three-thousand-metre peaks, wild streams and cultivated mountain farming landscapes.


As a long-distance hiker in Osttirol, you embark not only on a search for yourself – you also get to know and love the wild seclusion of Osttirol.
