Discover Pitztal’s diverse summit tours

The summits of Pitztal are truly powerful places. Experience the sensation of being at the top of the world and enjoy panoramic views of the breath-taking mountain scenery with its deep valleys and steep rock faces. This unique experience will leave you with memories of a lifetime. 

Summit tour tips: Pitztal’s impressive 3000 m peaks…

Apart from difficult and demanding tours such as the highest mountain of North Tyrol, the Wildspitze at 3,774 metres, Pitztal also offers easier and more achievable summit tours. 

For beginners, we recommend the Rappenkopf peak in St Leonhard in Pitztal. The summit can be reached in an easy hike starting from the Arzler Alm mountain hut. 

Further easy, moderate and difficult summit tour tips are the Rofelewand, Stallkogel, Gemeindekopf, Hochzeiger, Venet, Sechszeiger and more. 

Don’t forget an indulgent stop at one of the mountain huts…

After a demanding summit tour, stop in one of our rustic and idyllic mountain huts.
