Climbing & mountaineering

Between heaven and earth... 

The imposing peaks of the Kauner Valley exert their magnetic attraction on hikers, climbers, and mountaineers alike. There are mighty three-thousand meter high peaks for those who want to touch the sky, exciting Alpine trails for hikers, and breathtaking views below and all around for Alpine climbers.

The Kauner Valley also has countless sport climbing areas with a total of about 100 routes. For those who seek out the long, exposed routes, the walls and crags of the Kauner Valley hold a vast array of via-ferrata courses and traverses well worth the trip.

The Fernergries climbing garden with 29 routes from 3rd to 7th level of difficulty is particularly recommended. The “Holderli Seppl via ferrata” is also located in Fernergries and impresses with its impressive backdrop. The entrance begins at the Rifflbach waterfall over polished glacier mica gneiss. One of the most spectacular via ferratas in Tyrol is the Anton Renk via ferrata. You climb up right next to the Fallendenbach waterfall, where the daring can enjoy a unique natural spectacle. Due to its constant difficulty and overhanging passages, it is only reserved for absolute specialists. The new Verpeilschlucht climbing garden is also a real insider tip. This is located right on the outskirts of Feichten next to the Verpeil waterfall and can be reached on foot from our hotel. There are varied routes for children, beginners and advanced skiers in difficulty levels 2 – 6b. The Paragneiss offers excellent rock quality on the 15 routes with walls up to 27m high.
