Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail Multi-day hike along the long-distance trail
Escape from everyday life for a few days, leave the valley far behind you and get completely immersed in the nature of the Hohe Tauern: If you take the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail, the new long-distance hiking trail in SalzburgerLand, you are in for a very special nature adventure. Totalling 17 stages, this new long-distance hiking trail leads from the starting point at the foot of the Krimml Waterfalls to the Schmittenhöhe high above Zell am See. The route is a total of 275 kilometres long, and along the way you will spend the night either in the valley or in cosy mountain huts.
Tour with hiking shuttle service and luggage transfer
The trail leads you across the mountain world of the Hohe Tauern and combines tranquillity, sporty challenge and impressive views. The long-distance trail offers not only natural sights, but also exciting exhibitions and excursion destinations in the stage towns.
In addition, mountain railways are always available along the route, carrying you comfortably uphill, metre by metre. Furthermore, a convenient hiking shuttle service ensures comfort, and the bookable luggage transfer brings your equipment from one stage destination to the next.
The "trail fitness test" in Zell am See
Hiking is considered a booster for your immune system: the constant movement in nature trains the heart and lowers pulse rate and blood pressure. The oxygen-poor high-altitude air strengthens the lungs, and daily walking lowers blood sugar levels and blood lipid values. These health improvements can also be measured at the "trail fitness test" in Zell am See.
The "VO2max" value is calculated based on the medically approved Rockport test. You will be tested once before the multi-day tour, and once after at least three days of hiking. The achieved key figures are then entered into your personal fitness passport. A table provides information about your fitness, and you can see where you stand in comparison with your peers, and how your health values are changing.
(Digital) Hiking pins
As a souvenir of your hiking adventure along the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail, you have the possibility to collect four hiking pins through points. The virtual hiking pins in "Gold", "Silver", "Bronze" and "Green" can then be exchanged for a pin in the tourist offices along the trail.
How to collect the hiking pins? Very simple: download the Summitlynx tour app and collect points on your multi-day hike along the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail. The app also serves as a digital tour book on your smartphone.
