On day one we’ll walk for around five hours and cover roughly 17 kilometres. We’ll begin by walking through meadows and farmland of Penningberg before reaching Innerpenningberg. The incline will increase here as we hike towards Haagalm. Once we reach Haagalm, we’ll be able to enjoy a gentle walk with just a few simple hills before arriving at Höhenbrandalm. There we’ll take a forest road down hill to Kelchsau.
On day two we’ll be walking for a bit longer- around 6 hours. The paths that we’ll follow are intermediate level and we’ll get to take beautiful forest roads and alpine huts as we walk. This hike is strenuous, we’re going to gain 1,200 metres of elevation and we’ll reach the highest point on the KAT walk, the Lodron Mountain. If we are lucky with the weather then we should get beautiful 360 views of the Kitzbühel Alps from here.
The trails for day three are not that difficult but we will be covering 19 km which is not an easy feat.
On day four we’ll trek up to Schwarzkogelscharte Notch, taking in the views of beautiful alpine pastures along the way. We’ll then follow the ridgeline passing the ski resort Kitzbühel till we reach Hahnenkamm Mountain. From there we’ll descend back to Kitzbühel via the “Streif” racecourse. Along the way we’ll pass signs which provide some history and facts about the course, which is considered to be one of the most challenging downhill slopes in the world.
On this day we’ll cross Kitzbüheler Horn Peak to St. Johann. This will be a challenging hike. If it’s too much we can cut miles by taking a scenic gondola ride. The views from the top will make all your effort worth it though. From the top you’ll be able to enjoy 360 alpine views. To get back we’ll take a beautiful route down from the Kitzbüheler Horn Peak until we arrive at Harschbichl.
On our last day, we’ll take on a secluded upland plateau. This day of walking will be relatively easy, but we’ll walk through diverse scenery. From dry alpine pastures to karst formations. We’ll also get great views of lush forests and untouched landscapes.
