  • Discover the Alpine town of Kufstein, the Pearl of Tyrol
  • Follow sections of the long distance trail, the Eagle’s Way

Spend a week hiking around the impressive Kaiser mountains on this inn to inn walking tour. Made up of the Wilder Kaiser (wild emperor) and the Zahmer Kaiser (tame emperor) ranges, it’s the perfect location for an authentically Tyrolean walking adventure. Your tour begins in the medieval town of Kufstein, known for its imposing fortress, cobbled streets and colourful buildings. Follow panoramic trails in the shadow of the Kaiser’s dramatic peaks. Arrive at the pretty baroque town of St. Johann, the cultural hub of the Kaiser and Kitzbühel Alps. Hike across the ‘Gentle Emperor’ range to reach the verdant Walchsee lake. Take a refreshing swim and hike to a nearby viewpoint, enjoying fabulous views over the mountains and trails you followed to get here. Stay in 3-4* hotels, as well as spending two nights in traditional Austrian Alpine huts.
