TOUR: SCHAUFELJOCHBAHN TOP STATION – GLACIER PATH – EISGRAT TOP STATION Rest stops: Jochdohle restaurant (3,150m), Eisgrat restaurant (2,900m)
Hiking on an altitude of more than 3,000 metres, crossing of the glacier and a rest stop in Austria’s highest-located mountain restaurant. Omnipresent: the breath-taking view of a fascinating mountain landscape with 109 3,000m peaks. A special highlight en route:the TOP OF TYROL summit platformat 3,210 metres protrudes from the rock edge like the blade of a sword. No surprising that the GEO magazine selected the platform as being one of the ten most beautiful viewing platforms in the world. It is recommendable to make a brief detour to the Schaufeljoch chapel at the foot of the Schaufelspitze summit.
INFORMATION FOR HIKERS
The facilities operated by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen are located in a high-Alpine region. Outside of the station facilities themselves the risks associated with high-Alpine conditions must be expected. The hiking trails in the area are not part of the facilities operated and offered by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen. The map of the hiking trails shown here is not sufficient for the safe planning of a hike. Before setting out on a hike it is essential to check on the level of difficulty of the terrain, its demands on hikers and the characteristics of the trail. The hiking trails are not maintained by the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen. The Stubaier Gletscherbahnen assume no liability of any kind for accidents sustained on the hiking trails and in Alpine territory outside of the station facilities. In difficult weather conditions (snow, storm, fog etc.) such hiking trails become considerably more demanding and even impassable! Those wishing to go on a hike are advised to consult mountain guide services.
