Stunning views in a valley in Tyrol's Alps

Most tourists come to the Alps in the winter for skiing. This might well offer great views and dramatic scenery, but most skiing-enthusiasts fail to find out how charming the Alps can be for hiking during the summer months.

This plateau in Tyrol resembles actual wilderness. In fact, the infrastructure in Austria allows a tight management of the country's extensive forests even in regions far away from cities. The roads built for that purpose may be used by hikers, granting direct access to most of Austria's pleasant spots.
