Up high in the Alps, close under the sky, the Eagle Walk runs from east to west through the whole of the Tyrol. The course of the trail resembles the silhouette of an eagle soaring in the skies with its wings spread wide.

The 413-kilometre trail is broken up into 33 stages with a total elevation gain of 31,000 meters, accommodating a variety of skill levels and hiking preferences. Divided into 24 stages between the Kaiser Mountains and the Arlberg in North Tirol and a further nine stages between the Venediger and Großglockner peaks in East Tirol, the Eagle Walk offers endless hiking opportunities.

Those who take on the long-distance hiking adventure will love the Eagle Walk's diversity. The trail leads through the different mountain range. Long-distance hikers, experienced mountaineers and alpinists wanting to discover the country will be thrilled by the variety and summit victories. Alpine experience, surefootedness and a head for heights are the prerequisites for many stages.
