Nordic Walking through the picturesque Tux Mountain Scenery

The nordicsports active center is located in Tux – as the whole area offers ideal conditions for lovers of sport and nature alike! The idyllic mountain and glacier landscape, ranging from 1.3000 to 3.250 metres above sea level, with its fresh and healthy mountain air, offers not only 350 km of signposted hiking trails, but also 80 km suitable for Nordic Walking in summer!
Every year at the end of September the big cattle drive with Oktoberfest takes place in Hintertux. The cows are driven from the Bichlalm into the valley to Hintertux, where they return to their stables after an alpine summer.
This is celebrated with a big festival - the Hintertux Oktoberfest - organized by the Tux volunteer fire brigade. This festival is the highlight in autumn in Hintertux.
