Association of Pitztal mountain guides

Your alpine experts in Pitztal!

The certified mountain and ski guides from Pitztal will help you plan your holiday in the breath-taking Pitztal mountains. The Pitztal, one of the most beautiful and wildest side valleys of the Eastern Alps, is perfect for mountaineers and hikers. With the surrounding more than 3,000m-high mountains including the Tyrol’s highest mountain, the Wildspitze with 3,774m,  we can offer all a mountaineer can possibly ask for: from glacier tours to alpine rock and ice climbing to mountaineering tours and sports climbing excursions. The hiking routes that circle our striking valley, offer breath-taking views of the high-alpine mountains and are also recommended. Embark on a journey of unforgettable moments!
