The Hintertux

Woke up to clear blue skies so decided today was the day for the Hintertux walk, one of Tims favourites. The Hintertux is a 19km drive up the road. From there you can either walk up, or do what we did and get a cable car up and walk back down.

Even in early September there are skiers going up for some all year round glacial skiing. There are also some beautiful natural ice caves on / in the glacier which you can tour around (we did this a previous year).

In the past few years we have noticed the glacier is retreating, yet they are still developing their ski stations up here.

It is a downwards only walk when done like this. A mix of small rocky footpaths and wider tracks, but always stunning surroundings.

Oh how I wish I could swim in this! But you are not allowed.

Just before the middle lift station is a nice area with some information boards places to sit and enjoy the view.

A stop for a bite at the amazing ski restaurant at the middle station, with another good play area for kids.

Then descent part two, from the stunning to the pretty. And tricky underfoot.

Evie makes friends with the cows

And you find yourself in a valley with this stunning waterfall

A bit of wriggle time out for Evie, and enjoying the view for us, before the steep and rocky descent down to the bottom.
