Your active summer holiday.
Experience and protect nature – that’s the motto of the High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps which was named Nature Park of the Year in 2015. With over 230 themed hikes in the summer programme, you have the chance to get to know the diverse nature and culture of the region. Highlights include the trekking tours on the Berlin High Trail or along the Peter Habeler Route, where you can hike up to some of the most beautiful peaks in the region. The High Alps Nature Park Zillertaler Alps starts from the mountaineer village at Ginzling and extends upwards from here by 1,000 m, right up to the highest peak in the Zillertal Alps, the Hochfeiler, which is 3,509 m above sea level. In total, the Park covers 422 square kilometres and all of the characteristic peaks of the Zillertal Alps.
On eight varied routes, fitness-oriented summer holidaymakers can let off some steam against the impressive mountain backdrop of the Zillertal valley. The running and Nordic walking routes have been specially designed for sport and pass through particularly calm and untouched landscapes in Mayrhofen and the surrounding area. A further highlight for your holiday in the Zillertal is the numerous trail running options. The outdoor sport, which was officially recognised as an IAAF discipline by the International Association of Athletics Federation in 2015, requires physical fitness and surefootedness, and rewards you with incredible views. In Mayrhofen, ambitious forest and trail runners can find excellent terrains for all types of trail running, from cross adventure and cross running to cross trail and cross speed. The Hippach and Brandberg Trails are ideal training routes. In general, you can use all hiking paths to run over rough and smooth terrain and really follow your own flow – the possibilities are endless!
With the construction of the 18-hole golf course in Uderns, the range of sports on offer in the Zillertal valley has become even richer. Over approximately 65 hectares, the 18-hole championship course, large practice area with a covered driving range and short game area, PGA golf school and club house offer great conditions for beginners and golfing pros alike.

Climbing is one of the oldest sports practised in the Zillertal valley. So it’s no wonder that the Zillertal, and Mayrhofen in particular, made an international name for itself as a destination for mountain climbers fairly early on. Eight via ferrata routes challenge climbers of all levels. Amongst these via ferratas, you can find routes with varying degrees of difficulty, and even a dam wall, which is a challenge just waiting to be taken on. Defy the laws of gravity in the spectacular natural scenery of the Zillertal Alps and overcome your own limits. The via ferratas in Mayrhofen-Hippach are also regularly maintained and inspected, and guarantee a huge amount of climbing fun with the highest level of safety possible.
Wild, untamed and thrilling – experience water and the raw power of mountain nature up close by going rafting and canyoning in Mayrhofen. Leap, abseil and slide your way through gorges with some rope, a wetsuit and a good amount of courage. Your canyoning adventure begins just two kilometres from Mayrhofen and is an experience filled with pure adrenaline. Or become part of a team in a raft and pull your weight in the gushing River Ziller. Master rapids and powerful currents, all the while using your muscle power to keep the boat balanced.
