Long-distance hike Karwendel tour
Are you looking for an extended tour in the Karwendel mountains? Lace up your hiking boots, put on your rucksack, and off you go! The Karwendel tour is a multi-day hike through the Nature Park Karwendel, the largest contiguous protected area in the northern limestone Alps and Austria’s biggest nature park. Due to its topography, the Karwendel has an above-average proportion of natural habitats, such as primeval forests and wild rivers. It also boasts a remarkable diversity of species, some of which are rare or endangered in Europe, such as the white-backed woodpecker and the lady’s slipper. The Karwendel Nature Park is also home to the largest population of golden eagles in the Alps.
The Karwendel tour 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!
