Discover the sunny side of the Kitzbühel Alps on 6 daily stages, totaling 106 km and over 6,350 vertical metres!

The first stages of the tour lead from Hopfgarten to the most beautiful places in the Brixental side valleys. Here, it seems like time is standing still and you get to enjoy the pure, magnificent nature of the Alps. On the later stages you will experience the famous Hahnenkamm with the Ski World Cup town of Kitzbühel. The last stage leads from the lively St. Johann in Tirol to the beautiful St. Ulrich am Pillersee, nestled right at the shore of the picturesque lake Pillersee.

Beyond Hiking guarantees a time-out, leaving everyday life behind, exploring traditional villages and enjoying the fantastic mountain scenery with fresh alpine air. Of course, tasty Tyrolean delicacies in rustic alpine huts and welcoming hosts on the way are a must. After all, it is the hospitality that makes this piece of earth so special.
