A guided hike through the Zillertal Alps Nature Park to the Eiskarsee.

The magic of a mountain lake - guided hiking tour with the Zillertal alps nature park

We take a taxi from Lanersbach to Hobalm. This alpine farm is located below Geiseljoch, an ancient pastureland for cattle belonging to Frauenchiemsee Monastery. We hike on a forest road alongside the Hobarbach River to Vallruckalm alpine farm. Once there, we enjoy our packed lunch and relish the panoramic view back down the valley. Afterwards we make our way to the Eiskarsee Lake, which is usually frozen in spring and autumn. On the way back we walk down to Vallruckalm via the Nederjoch – with its sea of alpine roses – and the Nasse-Tux-Alm, before we enjoy refreshments at the Geiselhöfen. The taxi takes us back to Lanersbach.
