Day 1: Arrive in Kitzbuhel

Arrive in the small alpine town of Kitzbuhel, internationally renowned as one of the most famous winter sport resorts in the Alps and home to the legendary Hahnenkamm World Cup ski race. Settle into your hotel for a good night's sleep before journeying further into the Tyrolean Mountains.

Day 2: Around Bichlach and Lake Schwarzsee (12KM/7.5MILES)

Beginning with an absolute classic, today's walk takes you through a marvellous landscape of lush meadows and shaded woodland. Upon reaching Lake Schwarzsee, you'll notice the lake isn't black as the translation suggests but is a beautiful shade of emerald green. A popular swimming spot, take care if you choose to go for a refreshing dip. Pass traditional farmhouses and glistening ponds as you soak up the impressive backdrop of Wilder Kaiser rock massif.

Day 3: Kitzbuheler Horn Summit (12KM/7.5MILES)

Jump on the cable car up to Kitzbüheler Horn, the highest summit amidst these imposing mountains. Take the time to fully immerse yourself in the incredible atmosphere and 360° panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges, dotted with countless peaks. Marvel at over 300 different species of alpine plants as you make your way through the beautiful flower garden and towards the valley across idyllic meadows.

Day 4: Griesbach Ravine: Erpfendorf to St. Johann (18KM/11.5MILES)

Today starts with a short bus journey to Erpfendorf where you’ll journey into the wildly romantic Griesbach ravine. Proceed across impressive chain bridges and adventurous footbridges, suspended just above the gorge waters. Walk along the Jägersteig-trail until you reach the traditional Huberalm Hut, a great place to take a break. An alpine forest trail takes you to the shores of Großache river where you’ll follow the lovely riverbank path into St. Johann, a picturesque village set on the northern slopes of Kitzbühel Horn Mountain.

Day 5: Tyrolean Way of St. James (15KM/9.5MILES)

Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims as you travel along the Tyrolean Way of St. James. Through the Öfenschlucht-gorge you’ll reach the historic pilgrimage church of St. Adolari before continuing to the turquoise shores of Lake Pillersees. You’re guided by the rugged rock spires of the Steinberg mountains and the blue shell symbol of the pilgrims as you walk into Flecken before taking a chair lift up the mountain face to Buchensteinwand. Now at 1,450m, you’ll find a traditional chapel and viewing platform to witness the exceptional panorama. Descend into the valley along an informative flower trail.

Day 6: Around Sintersbacher Waterfall (11KM/7MILES)

To end your week in Kitzbühel, a spectacular natural treasure awaits. From Jochberg, you ascend through the Sintersbach basin which emerges at a height of 85m over steep rocks. Gaze into this striking display of natural power before descending into the valley along the remarkable Drachensteig trail. Take a short bus back to Kitzbühel full of memories from your Tyrolean adventure.

Day 7: Walk the famous 'Streif' before departing Kitzbuhel (6.5KM/4MILES)

Experience the famous Hahnenkamm downhill ski run, on foot! The Streif is a World Cup downhill ski course on Hahnenkamm mountain in the Kitzbuhel Alps which attracts around 50,000 people each year and is widely regarded as the most prestigious ski competition. Follow the ski course downhill where you can witness the world's most feared ski run firsthand. Information boards along the way give you an insight into the long history of this legendary course, complemented by stunning views of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains, Lake Schwarzsee, and the mighty Kitzbuheler Horn Mountain.
