Between high-altitude rush and summit bliss
Climbing adventures in Pitztal
Move by move, you inch closer to your goal, your fingers are firmly fused onto the rock face, your body rests against cool stone, and gracefully (like an ibex) you shimmy upwards. After all, the rugged rock faces are our power animal’s favourite terrain! Behind you, a dreamlike panorama opens up, majestic three-thousand-metre peaks and lush green valleys make the view a picture-perfect panorama. Does this idea give you goose bumps? Then head up one of the climbs and via ferratas!
