Hike along the wings of an eagle!

Multi-day hike Eagle Walk Tirol

33 stages, 413 kilometres, 31,000 metres of elevation gain: The Eagle Walk Tirol is a very popular long-distance hiking trail that leads through the entire length of Tirol. The course of the trail resembles the wings of an eagle and is divided into two main sections: 24 stages lead through the mountain world of North Tirol, nine stages through the Glockner and Venediger groups in East Tirol, each doable in a day. Three spectacular sections of the Eagle Walk take you through the Achensee region.

About 10 kilometers from Lake Achensee and situated at 1,000 meters above sea level is the village of Steinberg am Rofan.
Stage 6
From Pinegg to Steinberg am Rofan: This 18-kilometre stage leads from Pinegg in the Brandenberg valley to the small idyllic village Steinberg am Rofan, also known as the “most beautiful end of the world”. On this stretch, the "eagle eye view" is watching the evening alpenglow wash over the tops of the Klobenjoch walls nestled in the Rofan. The climbing walls in the lowest grade on the summit of the Guffert (2,195m) provide a wonderful "eagle kick".
Hiking routes in the Achensee region reward hikers and mountaineers with stunning views of Lake Achensee and its surroundings.
Stage 7
This black (difficult) tour climbs from Steinberg am Rofan to the Erfurter Hütte mountain hut (1,834m), taking you through the diverse mountainous terrain of the Rofan: Mighty rock formations to the north, gentle meadows to the south. The "eagle eye view" on this stage affords gorgeous vistas of Lake Achensee dotted with colourful sailboats. For an "eagle kick" you can whizz through the air with the spectacular Skyglider AirRofan!
The Lamsenjoch hut in the Nature Park Karwendel is surrounded by beautiful autumn scenery.
Stage 8
This stage descends from the Erfurter Hütte to Maurach and Pertisau before it continues to the Lamsenjochhütte in the Nature Park Karwendel. Along the way, enjoy the "eagle eye view" of the many cirques which have been formed by glacial erosion. For an "eagle kick, visit the Tiroler Steinöl Vitalberg museum in Pertisau and buy some Tiroler Steinöl® (shale oil), which is mined in the Karwendel. The local elixir boasts natural healing properties and works wonders for tired legs.

The Eagle Walk Tirol is a challenging hike and aimed at experienced hikers. Its three stages run mostly on red (moderately difficult) and black (difficult) trails and require adequate experience in alpine terrain and thoughtful tour planning. Sure-footedness and a head for heights are essential. We also recommend taking a via ferrata set, which is a practical option. Click here and read our tips for staying safe while hiking!
