Package - Thru Hiking

The trail in one piece

Thru Hiking, a term from the USA, refers to hiking through one of the great long-distance trails in one piece and has become a philosophy that has a special fascination for long-distance hikers. While this undertaking can take up to half a year on the great classics such as the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail, you naturally don't have to take such a long time out for the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail. Nevertheless, completing the 17 scenic stages is an ambitious goal.

The trail starts at the Krimml Waterfalls and ends in the mountaineering village of Hüttschlag, with top-class hiking experiences in between. From breathtaking distant views at eye level with Austria's highest mountains to inspiring encounters along the way. This promise makes the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail the perfect destination for the first Thru Hiking experience. And unlike Thru Hiker adventures in the wilderness of America, you don't have to sacrifice comfort on this trail: The tried-and-tested Trail Angels at the official Trail Info and Booking Centre are on hand to provide helpful service to long-distance hikers. With this support, the independent hike through the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail becomes an unforgettable hiking experience.
