Pertisau and Lake Achensee are a true hiking paradise.

Across the region, you will find a hiking network comprising 450 kilometres of signed and well-maintained trails. Choose from flat paths along the Achensee, leisurely family hikes or challenging summit tours through the Karwendel and Rofan mountains.

Our favourite tour goes to the Bärenkopf – you can reach the summit in 2 hours leaving from the mountain station of the Karwendel cable car. At the summit cross, you are rewarded with a magnificent view of Lake Achensee and the Tyrolean Inn Valley – up here, time and space are blissfully forgotten.

The Achensee Tourist Association also offers a weekly hiking programme with guided tours from May until October.
