Getting close to the animals

The wilderness tour takes you into Seebachtal, where you can head out in the tracks of the red deer. “Bike ‘n Hike” is the maxim of the combi-tour, where you ride on an E-Bike into Seebachtal and then head out on a mountain tour. With our rangers you can get close to the red deer, chamois and bearded vultures. And you have a great chance of seeing ibex at the Glocknerhaus in Heiligenblut. Our rangers know when and where!

Guided hikes in the National Park

The programme of guided hikes in the Hohe Tauern National Park really is something to behold. The tours proceed across unspoilt Alpine pastures, through larch forests, right the way through to mountain ridges that provide plenty of views. The Moharrunde is an easy tour for beginners, while the tour via the Lonza requires a bit more expertise and endurance. The ‘Elendrunde’ is true to its name (‘misery circuit’), being long and arduous. The National Park hiking day is a special event, where anyone who wants to head out on a hike meets up.
