One of the highlights of your hiking holidays in Tirol is definitely a tour into the five side valleys of Gerlos (Schwarzachtal, Wimmertal, Krumbachtal, Schönachtal and Wildgerlostal), which attract hikers with their unspoilt nature. Whether you’re a pleasure hiker or summiteer, there’s plenty of tours available, for example to the Richter mountain hut or the Krimmler Tauernhaus.
