No matter if you are alone or in a group, the via ferrata in Obergurgl’s stone pine forest makes a unique experience. Right at the start you have to cross a footbridge at dizzying heights, then the path leads up the mountain and towards the rocks. Adrenaline is guaranteed on this tour, as is the awe-inspiring view. Below you, the waters of Ötztaler Ache meander through the valley with a soothing murmur and at the rear end of the valley you can make out the silhouette of Schalfkogel peak and its magnificent glacier. Incidentally, the Schalfkogel seminar hall at Gurgl Carat was named after this stunning mountain.
