Experience beautiful autumn colours!

The best hikes in late summer or autumn

One of the best ways to discover a landscape is on foot. And, according to a study by the Austrian Alpine Association, hiking can boost your mood, replenish your energy, and restore a sense of calm.

Hiking is a great outdoor activity at any time of the year. But for many, autumn is the best season for exploring the forests and mountains. The leaves change colour, the temperatures are cooler, and the views are incredibly clear. Nature shines in hues of amber, red and gold, and the forests are ablaze with brilliant displays of colour - a real feast for the eyes.

Of course, a stop for refreshments is a must on a hiking or mountain tour. Numerous alpine huts in the Rofan and Karwendel mountains invite you to relax and enjoy regional delicacies while you soak in the magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Fancy a scenic gondola ride? Let the Karwendel and Rofan cable cars whisk you to the top of the mountains. The cable cars operate until the beginning of November, weather permitting.
