Go where the eagle flies!


The eagle is bold and the Eagle Trail has it all. In the high alpine mountains, close to the sky, it runs from east to west through the whole of Tyrol. The route resembles the silhouette of an eagle soaring in the air with its wings spread wide.

Alpine experience, surefootedness and a head for heights are the prerequisites for many of the stages in order to take on the challenge: 320 kilometers of hiking between the Wilder Kaiser and Arlberg, 24 daily stages ranging from easy to difficult, from gentle to jagged, from exhilarating to extremely strenuous. 23,000 vertical meters uphill, 20,000 vertical meters downhill.

The East Tyrolean Eagle Trail is shorter, but just as magnificent and challenging: nine stages between the Venediger and Großglockner, 93 kilometers long, approx. 8,000 meters of altitude difference uphill and almost as many downhill. Countless steps, hundreds of peaks, thousands of magnificent views! The Hafelekar is located on stage 12 of the Adlerweg. You can find more information at Adlerweg - stage 12 and
