Huts & hill farms
What would hiking be without a stop for delicious refreshments? In the surrounding mountains, there is a variety of cozy, rustic hill farms and mountain huts with traditional Tyrolean specialties. Regain your strength with a snack and enjoy the wonderful views. Our personal recommendation is the Bergrestaurant Eggalm, the charming Brandalm, or the Lattenalm.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from July to September, an experienced glacier guide from the Tuxertal Ski School will take you on an exciting and eventful exploration tour on the Hintertux Glacier. At a spectacular elevation of 3250 m, you can learn more about the surrounding mountains and enjoy breathtaking views. You will hike over centuries-old glacial ice and past mighty, turquoise ice formations and learn interesting information about the formation of our glacier.
Athletic “full-body training” on the one hand and experiencing the natural Tyrolean landscape on the other: all you need are 2 poles and good shoes. In order to enjoy this sport right from the beginning, we recommend an introductory course with a Nordic walking trainer. The nordicsports active center is located in Tux, which is the high valley at the foot of the Hintertux Glacier. The ideal high-altitude location offers the optimal conditions for sports and nature lovers! Awaiting you in summer are 80 km of Nordic walking routes and 350 km of marked hiking trails.
