HIKE – FERNAU MID-STATION TO THE EISGRAT MOUNTAIN STATION
On the hiking trail from the Fernau mid-station to the Eisgrat mountain station the Stubai Glacier present itself from its most beautiful side. The paths leads along the moraine, which tells of early glacier advances, past the impressive glacier polishes of the Eisjoch Ferner and the ice grotto to the Eisgrat mountain station. 150 years ago the glacier came up to the location of today’s mid-station. The ice left the impressive moraine walls. The Fernau reservoir invites to spend some time.
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.
