My intense summer in Stubaital

Stubai – pure exercise and enjoyment

A variety of relaxation and sports opportunities, a picturesque landscape surrounded by 109 three-thousanders and 80 glaciers with glorious natural settings, original places to stop for typical regional fare and an adventure-filled BIG family children’s programme. Topped off by the services of the four mountain railways – Stubaier Glacier, Schlick 2000, Serlesbahnen and Elfer lifts – the Stubaital stands for all-round enjoyment and active exercise.

Stubaital: In Stubaital in the heart of Tirol, not far from the state capital of Innsbruck, anyone can get active in different ways – young and old, sporty and moderate, people seeking peace and quiet and pleasure seekers. Whether it is walking through blossoming forest and meadow landscapes, cycling on the best signposted mountain bike routes, conquering peaks on hiking routes, climbing and climbing routes, or enjoying the view from above on a paragliding and hang-gliding flight.

Informative hiking destination

The beauty and diversity of the nature in Stubaital can be best discovered while hiking. Theme-based routes are particularly popular here and link the hiking experience to interesting information from nature, history and culture. Numerous routes are dedicated to a specific topic and make exercising in the open air more attractive. For example the newly opened “Geh Zeiten Wege” and their interactive stations at Elfer, the 120 km long Stubaier Höhenweg and especially the WildeWasserWeg (wild water route). It don’t just lead past impressive viewpoints but also benefit health with the Grawa waterfall. As a study revealed, staying at the foot of a waterfall for an hour has an extremely positive effect on the upper respiratory tract. In order to bring this effect close to as many visitors as possible to allow them to experience it, the circular route at the Grawa waterfall was designed wheelchair-accessible with a generous stopping platform.

Great variety of sports all around

Mountain enthusiasts can scale a number of summits and peaks in Stubaital and write it in their own personal summit book, whether across high-up hiking trails, climbs, climbing gardens or with the valley’s four mountain rails. Anyone who loves to feel air under their feet goes on the 15 climbs or climbing gardens in the valley. In the end, you can soar over everything on a paragliding or hang-gliding flight. Adventure seekers can find additional challenges in the adventure park in Fulpmes. Cycling lovers discover the valley on over 750km of excellently signposted mountain bike and e-bike routes.

Hearty and welcoming

Over 60 cabins and Almen (Alpine pastures) in the valley provide creature comforts after a vast active programme. They process regional products into culinary treats and delight their guests with all kinds of fancy creations which can only be tasted in the Stubai Alps. However, it is not just the excellent meals that invite you to stay for a while. The hospitality and friendliness of the cabin owners, who love to talk about their valley and share it with others, allow you to pass many an unforgettable hour. Anyone who wishes to take home a culinary treat from Stubai can make use of the regional treats and specialties by farmers at the weekly farmers‘ market in Neustift.

Children’s paradise in Stubaital

In Stubaital, children have a lot to laugh about. Some BIG family premium homes, BIG family partner businesses and BIG family restaurants specialise fully in families with children. The BIG Family Stubai summer club ensures that kids don’t run out of holiday ideas. Professionally trained staff look after the little ones. Sorted into age groups, the youngest from four up experience mountain experience days, torchlight hikes, pony rides and forest parties and an “Alpine pasture quiz”. For slightly older kids from ten up go higher with climbing courses in the adventure park, in the Alpine garden in Schlick 2000 or tandem flying for beginners. A ride on the rafting boat or on the summer toboggan run at the Serles courses in Mieders ensures additional exciting adventure. The programme is rounded off by a match of mini-golf and geocaching.

A particular “treat” for families is the BIG Family Stubai summer card – available at check-in at one of the BIG Family partner establishments. All children up to 15 years old can thus travel for free in the lifts (Stubaier glacier, Schlick 2000 in Fulpmes, Serles courses in Mieders and Elfer lifts in Neustift) when accompanied by a paying adult and enjoy other benefits with it.
