Summers in East Tyrol

Ice capped mountains and lush green valleys

East Tyrol lies nestled in the midst of ice-capped mountains and lush green valleys – the hidden Tyrol, in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park and the unique Dolomite Mountains. With the most beautiful natural treasures and deep-rooted history of this idyllic and hospitable world, holidays are a very special experience here.

200 mountain refuge huts and hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails will make the heart of every hiking enthusiast skip a beat. Whether hiking in the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Lienz Dolomites, Carnic Ridge or Deferegger Mountains, there is something to suit everyone’s taste and stamina levels.

Diversity for pleasure seekers

East Tyrol is characterised by diverse climatic conditions, as well as varied landscapes and terrain: Ice covered peaks tower over flat valley beds and glaciated hollows; steep rock faces flank wide alpine meadows.

These ancient landscapes are an integral component of East Tyrol, as is the cultural topography created by alpine farming and living in harmony with nature for centuries.
