Golden Eagle Nature Watch Tour
The Nature Park Karwendel is a special highlight for holidaymakers in the Achensee region. Austria’s largest nature park is home to the highest population of golden eagles in the entire Alps. The rangers of the Nature Park Karwendel organize guided tours where visitors can watch golden eagles and at the same time learn interesting facts about the nature park.
On selected dates guided tours are offered into the habitat of the golden eagles. Equipped with sturdy shoes, weather appropriate clothing, drinks and snacks the participants also get the chance to meet other residents of the nature park while hiking through the species-rich flora.
