The Inntaler Höhenweg Trail
Long distance trails
The Inntaler Höhenweg follows the 2000m contour line for six days, high above the Tyrolean Inn valley to the east, from Patscherkofel to Kellerjoch. Between 1800m and 2800m the "Inntaler" runs through untouched mountain landscapes of the quiet Tux Alps.
From Innsbruck/Igls/Patscherkofelbahn-Berg, the trail traverses via Patscherkofel on the Zirbenweg to the Glungezer Hütte (2610m), on the "Glungezer & Geier" ridge route via the 7TS - "seven TuXer summits" - to the Lizumer Hütte (2019m). From here the "Inntåler" follows the Central Alpine Trail 02A via Grafennsjoch to the Weidener Hütte, from there via Nurpensjoch to the Rastkogelhütte (2117m), after Hochfügen and via Loassattel to the Kellerjoch hut, with descent to Schwaz.
The "Inntåler" runs through the Patscherkofel - Zirmberg - Viggartal - Glungezer nature reserve, above the Blue Lakes, touches Voldertal, Navistal, Wattental, Nafing and Nurpenstal, Sidantal and Finsinggrund.
The Patscherkofel and the mountain range leading eastwards to Glungezer offer beautiful views over the Inn valley to the Nordkette and Karwendel, to the south into the Central Alps, Zillertaler, Stubaier, Ötztaler Alps.
In the middle part of the route, between Naviser Jöchl and Grafennsjoch, there are wonderful views of the "Zillertal Valley". From the Kellerjoch, the view reaches out to Innsbruck, the Zillertal and the Karwendel. Wonderful flora and fauna are constant companions.
The "Inntåler" is not a "self-catering" mountain hut tour, but a high-altitude pleasure tour. All cabins strive to provide their guests with a very good culinary supply and want to spoil them with regional products and local cuisine.
Don't forget to book your beds on the cabins in advance.
The whole tour takes about 6 days.
