Nature Park Zillertal
We are situated in the Nature Park Zillertal Alps - a protected area in the Zillertal Alps.
The nature park ranges from about 1,000 m to 3,509 m altitude and includes all levels of the central Alps. Due to factors such as altitude, exposition, geological make-up, or formation history, you will discover very different habitats as well as animal and plant species.
Because of its vertical orientation, the number of habitats is large, and flaura and fauna are very diverse. Glaciers cover a sizeable part of the nature park and have formed the landscape since time immemorial.
In addition to the natural factors, it is humans who shape nature and cultivate areas today. The effects of their lifestyles and economic activities can be easily seen in the environment and are - especially in the Alps - responsible for the changeable and romanticised mountain landscape.
The mountain nature park offers you diverse opportunities to relax - whether actively, by hiking, climbing, mountain biking, or comfortably on extended walks through the magnificent and varied landscape.
Experience the park's characteristics and secrets on one of our summer program tours. Let yourself be enchanted by the glittering world of minerals, by adventurous stories from the times of poachers and smugglers, or by the special flair of a torch hike.

We have guided tours for people of all ages. The tours have different durations (half-day, full day) and are centered around different themes like cultivated landscape, botany, geology, glacier, mountain forest, which our trained guides will introduce to you! Of course there are special offers for families with children, such as lama trekking or a visit to the Keilkeller waterfalls.
