The Adlerweg, or Eagle’s Walk, meanders in the shape of an eagle for 1,400km across and around the Tirol, with its conceptual head in lnnsbruck.

This walk takes in a marvellous selection of scenery, from high mountains and crags, sheer gorges, traditional villages, dappled woodland, flowery meadows and beautiful river valleys. It also provides a good view of the culture, traditions and history of the region.

You can do as little or as much as you want, as it is broken into easily digestible stages. To state the obvious, not many people complete the entire route.

Austria’s mountain huts are one of its great glories, and this route wanders from hut to hut when on the high ground, so you can travel lighter than you might think.

This can be tough walking in remote mountains with uncertain weather. Come fully prepared.

Have a look at TripAdvisor – you should get good, current views on places to stay, eat etc.
