Hiking – as far as your feet will carry you
The Stubaital is a true hiker’s paradise. The Stubaital and the Stubai Alps offer an almost limitless hiking network. An unforgettable nature experience as the Stubaital offers something for everyone, independent of training condition, stamina and experience. Walks and hikes in the village of roses or to scenic nature site, easy routes on medium altitudes and themed trails, the WildeWasserWeg, the Stubaier Höhenweg and the more challenging Seven Summits routes … the offer is extensive.
More leisurely hikers often take the cable cars when ascending or descending, as their use is included in the Stubai Super Card.
In addition to quaint huts and tasty Stubai delicacies, impressive views mark the end of the hike. Panoramic views of the summits and the platforms at the Stubai Glacier, the Schlick 2000 and at the Elfer are probably the most rewarding experiences when hiking.
Climbing rock and ice
No any other valley in Tyrol offers via ferrata trails and climbing gardens in such quantity and variety. Beginners as well as professionals will get their special kick in the secured cliffs of the Stubaital, as some of the routes come with fascinatingly exposed passages.
In the Schlick 2000 or in the area of the Franz-Senn-Hütte in the Stubai there is a variety of challenging alpine climbing routes and some hook-secured multi-rope routes. In winter, mountaineers particularly value the ice fall climbing. Beginners can try out that sport at the ice climbing tower at the Stubai Glacier, also on occasion of a course offered by mountain guides. Alternatively, you can check out the indoor climbing hall in Fulpmes in winter.
The Adventure Park in Fulpmes, the largest high wire garden in Tyrol, offers 130 exercises across 13 parcours, where both children as well as professional athletes will have fun, as they can meet the ski jumping stars of the Stubaital, Gregor Schlierenzauer or Andreas Kofler, there from time to time.
On your bike and up the hill!

The 720 km long comprehensive trail network in the Stubaital with a difference in altitude of approximately 13,000 m offers sufficient variety and is arranged in line with the Mountain Biking Model Tyrol. All routes are properly sign-posted. Interactive maps as well as QR codes at the signs facilitate navigation through unknown areas.
Racing bikers can use the asphalted Stubai alpine road to ascent to the Valley Station of the Stubaier Gletscherbahn.
