Enjoy descending on mountain paths along the Ötztaler Ache, take in the beautiful views as you go.
A shorter day of walking takes you from Niederthai over green pastures and through airy forests further down into the Ötztal Valley. Stop along the way for an al fresco picnic of local meats and regional produced Mozzarella. Descend to Längenfeld, the main town of the lower Ötztal
After your walking day relax your tired legs in the warm healing waters of the impressive ‘Aqua Dome’ spa and wellness centre.
There are 4 sections today where the path has been secured with ropes, therefore you must be confident walking at heights and steady on your feet. In rainy weather, the narrow trails can be muddy and slippery. Make sure to wear sturdy footwear with good grip.
Check the latest weather information (for example by asking at your accommodation or the local tourist information centre) and be on the lookout for changes in the weather. If the weather is stormy or very rainy, do not walk this trail, as the path can be slippery.
You are responsible for your own safety. Know your limits and follow signs and instructions at all times. Off-track navigation is not recommended.
We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.
In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack
