Several times a week, approx. two-hour hikes. We take you to the most beautiful corners of the region.
Possible hiking destinations are:
- Bichlach: rolling hills of meadow and forest around the Vogelsberg and Giering ponds
- Schleier waterfall near Kitzbühel: a marvellous hiking route to the waterfall, with stops at the Ebner chapel and a goat farm
- Astbergweg: high-elevation hike with breath-taking views of the Wild Kaiser and the Kitzbühel mountains
- Gaudeamus Hut on Wild Kaiser
- Up to the Labalm in the Spertental near Kirchberg

You can join this active yoga vacation at any time. Please bring hiking shoes and raingear.
For hikes requiring transportation, we take one of the participants’ cars or share a taxi.
The impressive Krimml Waterfalls or the Großglockner, the highest mountain and largest glacier in Austria, are ideal destinations for day trips.
