Hiking in the Kaunergrat Nature Park is a great way to experience the huge diversity of flora and fauna in the Pitztal Valley. From the eternal ice of the Pitztal Glacier to sunny south-facing slopes, you can literally follow in the footsteps of chamois and mountain goats and, if you are lucky, may even catch a gimpse of the largest colony of wild ibex in Austria. Other alpnie animals native to the valley include mouflons, golden eagles, deer and marmots.
At the heart of the park is the Kaunergrat Nature Park Centre, where visitors can experience the interactive exhibition "3000 METRES VERTICAL" givign them a fascinating insight into the park and its natural landscape. Nearby there is the Piller Moor, one of Europe's most beautiful high alpine moors and easily accessible for wheelchair users.
Every summer the Kaunergrat Nature Park offers a series of free hikes with experienced mountain guides showing you the best spots in what is without a doubt one of Austria's most spectacular regions.
