Reward for passionate hikers

If you have pins and needles in your legs already in the early morning when you wake up you've probably caught the walking badge fever.

Therefore you can exchange your successful walking tours for the coveted hiking badge in gold, silver or bronze. No matter if you use the good old hiking pass or the digital form via smartphone, your personal hiking badge makes a truly wonderful souvenir of the mountain tours in Gurgl and Ötztal. Also the Glacier Pin ranks among the undisputed highlights when it comes to an Alpine summer vacation.
