Splendid alpine setting dotted with villages in the valleys. You will find more areas untouched by ski resorts with their cable cars and construction. Trails for all levels of experience are numerous. Lots of powerful waterfalls, srreams and rivers. Note that the lack of cable cars in most places means that access to glaciers is typically limited to those capable of strenuous climbs. If you wish to be able to easily gain altitude and hike at above 3000 meters try Otztal for example. Weather is typically unstable. The good thing about that is that even if a week of rain is predicted you may end up with many dry days at least morning to afternoon. You may also end up suffering near freezing howling winds and rain on a bad day. We actually saw fresh snow in August.... no way to plan ahead. Be ready with cold weather and waterproof clothing.

This national park has spectacular walking and climbing trails that are well sign posted and maintained. Walks take between one to five hours and longer for those wanting to stay in the different huts connecting the parks routes. Perfect for individuals who want to de stress and escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The only noise comes from the cow bells and birds.

My boyfriend and I spent a day hiking in the western side of the park. We hiked along a trail with a river that had numerous glacial water falls flowing into it. In total we saw at least 5 raging waterfalls. The trail was shaded for a portion and the temperature near the river was cool, which was ideal for hiking. Our end destination was Clarahutte where enjoyed a few brews (<5€!!). If we could go back we would triple our time spent in this park. An absolutely wonderful experience!

Great place to spend some time hiking. It has some unique hikes and spectacular views. We especially loved the little church built into the Rock. We wish we could have stayed longer.

It was our first time that we visited this national park in summer. And it's unbelievable beautiful when it's all green! It was really worth a visit! The only thing is that you should check when the season starts. We were not so lucky. A lot was closed in the last week of April. We went anyway... But don't tell anyone
We went for some long hikes and some glettersteigs! Really really great!!
