Hiking in the Stubai valley – nature at your fingertips

Hiking in the Stubai valley gives you the chance to spend pleasurable hours in close contact with nature. With the Stubai Glacier towering on the horizon, the area is a hiking paradise in the heart of the Tyrolean mountains. There are many popular hiking paths and trails criss-crossing the valley, some of which hold the Bergwege Gütesiegel (mountain trail seal of approval) for mountain safety. Collect unforgettable experiences in the great outdoors starting directly from your accommodation: Hotel Cappella is an excellent starting point for trekking in the Stubai valley. Once a week, we will be accompanying you personally on a guided tour to the most charming corners of the valley!


Hiking in Tyrol is a healthy, exceptionally rewarding activity that also helps you stay fit during your holidays. Among the local standouts, we highly recommend the Stubai High Mountain Trail which winds through a fantastic mountain landscape along rippling streams and past roaring waterfalls. The circular 8-day hike covers a total of 8,000 metres of altitude and includes some fixed rope sections, therefore it is suitable for experienced hikers only. The starting point of this route? Natura Vitalis Hotel Cappella, of course!

Recommended – our favourite hikes in the Stubai valley

The choice of hiking routes in the immediate vicinity of our hotel is dazzling, with even more options if you are willing to go a bit further into the valley. Nature lovers should not miss the Grawa waterfall, the hike to the summit of the Kreuzjoch at 2,170 m of altitude, the Stollensteig route and the Franz Senn path leading from Neustift to the valley end by the Stubai Glacier. There are also exciting Nordic walking trails, such as the fitness path that stretches 5 km from the leisure centre in Neustift to Krößbach.


Our top insider tip? The WildeWasserWeg (wild water path), a natural jewel that enchants hikers with unparalleled views to the valley. Follow the path to discover the world of water in all its forms and shades: snow-shite glacier fields, turquois mountain lakes, crystal-clear springs and roaring waterfalls.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
