The Lech Valley: invigorating, exceptional and restorative
The Lech Nature Park in Tyrol is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt landscapes in the Alps. With its wide stony river bed, the turquoise Lech river is one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe. In the Lech Valley you can find peace and tranquillity or if you’re feeling more adventurous there are lots of cycling and hiking trails to be explored.
If you want to get close to the action why not try a rafting boat trip or try fishing in the waters of the river Lech. The Lechtal Alps are renowned for their beautiful mountain lakes. Two of these mountain lakes have even been voted ‘the most beautiful spot in Austria’. One is the Formarinsee, a lake high up in the mountains near the source of the river Lech, and the other is the Körbersee above the village of Schröcken. If you’d rather see the mountain peaks from above why not arrange a paragliding flight.
There are also more than 50 alpine huts and alms which serve delicious Tyrolean cuisine for you to savour. In autumn people come and enjoy yoga and music sessions in the mountains as well as activities such as guided hikes where you can learn about the mountain flora and herbs.
