Rental of hiking equipment


Spontaneous hiking tour without proper equipment. Is that possible? Yes, at the Intersport Okay Stubai Glacier, you can rent your hiking equipment.

Phew it is so hot in the valley, where can I find relief from the heat besides the outdoor pool or at a lake? Put the head in the freezer maybe – no! Much better! A hike in the Stubai Glacier mountains is a fantastic idea. Because there it is pleasantly cool despite the summer heat and it is a great opportunity to check out the Stubai Glacier in the summer.
But without proper equipment, completely spontaneous, without previous planning? What should I do now? No problem, at the Intersport Okay on the Stubai Glacier you can conveniently rent your equipment on site.

This equipment can be rented on site

  • hiking boots for men, women and children
  • hiking poles
  • snow spikes (covers for hiking boots – for hiking on slippery grounds)
  • gloves

For the fast-decided or a one-day excursion to the glacier, you don’t need special planning. However, if you are planning a longer tour, it is advisable to prepare and plan it properly in advance and to refer to the checklist  for the most important things you need. Because a hike is especially fun when everything fits well, nothing pinches and you are protected from wind and weather. The highly trained staff at Intersport Okay on the Stubai Glacier will be happy to help you. Depending on the kind of the tour you are planning, you will need different equipment.
But if you want to make an easy hike today, then admire the life-sized mammoth on your way up to the Top of Tyrol summit platform  at 3,210m? Then the following equipment will do:

  • hiking pants
  • hiking boots
  • T-shirt
  • light jacket
  • head protection
  • sunglasses (at least category 3, better 4)
  • possibly hiking poles
  • rucksack with snack and water bottle
  • first-aid kit
  • sunscreen (min. SPF 30, better 50)
  • smart phone/mobile
  • neck scarf/bandana

Back to the Ice Age - a huge wooden mammoth awaits our little visitors. A look at the base of the mammoth tells me that this is a play paradise for children. Climb up, play inside and slide down again. The children get into the mammoth in different ways: on a rope, a wall bar or by climbing up.

Before I take a break, I want to go up to the summit platform. I take the cable car up and climb a few more steps until I reach the TOP OF TYROL at 3,200 metres. Phew, it's not a quick climb, because you can clearly feel the altitude. It's quite strenuous here at over 3,000 metres. So walk slowly. The effort was worth it. What a magnificent view of the Stubai Alps. Gigantic!

WATCH OUT! Should you plan a multi-day hike, glacier crossing or a summit tour, it must be thoroughly planned. You must be very sure-footed and consider the weather conditions. There is also the danger of crevasses.

If you have no alpine experience, please contact a mountain guide. They are happy to accompany you.
