Nature & Exercise

Tirol, the “Land in the Mountains”

In Tirol, you will find rest and relaxation in the midst of majestic mountain landscapes. High mountains and deep lakes, long hiking and biking trails and countless sports facilities make Tirol a holidaymaker’s paradise, in both summer and in winter. Multi-faceted activities in the midst of nature enthral adrenaline-rush seekers and recreational athletes, just as much as those seeking pleasant quietude.


Climbing & Hiking

From leisurely walks on the flat in one of the Tirolean valleys to a climbing tour on one of the 573 three thousand metre high peaks. Tirol is a climbing and hiking paradise and appreciated by holidaymakers and business travellers alike. Guided climbing and hiking tours as part of corporate incentives boost not only team spirit, but fitness levels too! Well signposted Tirolean hiking trails and breathtaking mountain scenery ensure your tour is a memorable one. Tirolean National Parks, such as the Zillertal Alps Nature Park with all its ravines and gorges, are also well worth a visit.

Cycling & Mountain Biking

Regardless of whether by mountain bike or a less energy-sapping e-bike, there is probably no faster or more environmentally friendly way of exploring Tirol’s natural landscapes. 920 kilometres of cycle trails run alongside rivers, through forests and over alpine passes, with overnight stays in bike-friendly hotels provide unique opportunities to experience Tirol’s stunning nature. For Tiroleans, mountain biking in summer is on par with skiing in winter. Steep slopes and racy downhills guarantee an unadulterated adrenalin kick. Tirol is also home to a myriad of trails. Although if you like to take things a little easier, you could ride to one of the numerous Tirolean mountain huts along the well-developed forest and hiking trails, where you can savour your well-earned reward of delicious “Kaiserschmarren” (traditional sweet, chopped pancake)!

Golf is a more peaceful, yet equally challenging alternative to the many action sport possibilities in the mountains. It can be enjoyed without undue expense and is suitable for all age groups. The 20 Tirolean golf clubs promise a diverse game for every level of ability – from beginner to pro. Moreover, numerous hotels offer golf training sessions on their private golf courses. Our partner hotels, Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol, A-ROSA Kitzbühel, Sportresidenz Zillertal and Romantik Hotel der Wiesenhof all have their own private golf courses, where you can recharge your batteries in the midst of Tirolean nature after the exertions of an intensive meeting. This means you can savour the benefits of a perfect work-life balance, leaving you receptive for new ideas and better able to cope with any challenges the future may hold.

Rafting & canyoning

High mountains, deep lakes and fast-flowing rivers. Not only on land does Tirol have much to offer. You can cool off in summer in one of the crystal-clear mountain lakes that enjoys drink-water quality, or take part in active adventure sports, such as rafting or canyoning. Together in a team and under professional guidance, you can experience Tirol’s thrilling white waters whilst rafting down one of the provincial rivers. Canyon expeditions involve following the course of a river on foot whilst kitted out in a wetsuit, climbing over rocks and down the occasional waterfall. A task that requires trust and team spirit, making it an ideal team activity for incentives. Above all, our partner AREA47, Austria’s largest outdoor playground, is the perfect starting point for fun-action in Tirol’s rivers and white waters.

Skiing & Cross Country Skiing

Tirol’s archetypal outdoor activity and the national sport per se. Around 80 ski areas and over 3,400 kilometres of piste impress with optimum snow conditions and perfectly groomed slopes. You can even ski in summer on the 5 Tirolean glaciers. A more cost-effective alternative is offered by sports such as cross-country skiing and ski touring. With over 4,000 kilometres of trails throughout Tirol, you will find a cross-country ski trail in literally every winter sports resort. Ski touring, on the other hand, is a more recent trend in Tirol and easy for novices to learn. It provides the opportunity to experience nature in its purest form, as well as unforgettable downhill runs after the rigours of the uphill hike. Mountain guides and pros from our three partner agencies, Alpin Convention, eventfactory and eventation, ensure for your personal safety and that your experience in backcountry terrain is a special one.
