Gerlos - the hiking paradise

The Gerlos hiking arena can also be loosely referred to as the "valley of valleys". Our 5 side valleys (Schwarzachtal, Wimmertal, Schönachtal, Wildgerlostal, Krumbachtal) are unique, which you can hike to from town, without a significant altitude change along the way, in about 1-3 hrs.

During the high season, several hiking buses travel for free to the valley entrances and even to Zell am Ziller, where there are huts with drinks and food, occasional live music, Sunday brunch, etc. 

The always rewarding day excursion to one of these "side valley treats" is of course accompanied at every turn by crystal-clear, babbling brooks, which invite you to cool off especially on very warm days.

An extensive variety of routes with varied levels of difficulty lead through the five valleys. And if you want, you can continue your hike up to the mountain peaks and the summit crosses. The highest mountains in Gerlos are over 3,000m high.

Gerlos also has a reservoir where various types of water sports are available. More popular summer activities: via ferrata climbing, the Arena Skyliner, mountain bike tours, canyoning, rafting, high ropes course, a climbing tower and many more. Maybe you'll find a new passion for yourself?

Summer in the mountains of Zillertal

Spend the most beautiful days of the year in Zillertal. The summer in the mountains is known to be a natural power source. The vibrant colours of the alpine world, alpine pastures with dreamlike views and hiking pleasure - that all unites the summer in the mountains of Zillertal. Test your limits with a paragliding tandem flight above the Alps or challenge yourself with a rafting tour in the rivers of the valley.
