Origination of the Innsbruck Trek
ASI Reisen is a travel business focusing on outdoor activities, and organising hiking journeys in 78 different countries around the globe. The over 57 years-old family business holds its roots in the sports-city in the midst of the Alps: Innsbruck. With the Innsbruck Trek, general manager Ambros Gasser wishes to give guests an understanding of his home country. Together with Innsbruck‘s tourism, a long-distance hiking trail has been created that combines the region’s most beautiful mountains and their treks.
Preparing for the Innsbruck Trek
Out and about in the mountains, packing list, Med-kit & co.
‚Less is more‘ is the name of the game when it comes to hiking baggage. While hiking through Innsbruck‘s mountain range you should travel light. For an easier planning, ASI experts have put together a well-organised packing list.
Being well prepared for the mountain tour
Things are different in the mountains! Despite enjoying pure nature, a few rules need to be considered. Find out what to do in case of emergencies and how to treat nature respectfully. This way you are well prepared for your journey, and a carefree experience in the mountains will be guaranteed.
3 Difficulty Levels
easy, challenging or alpine route
Independently or guided?
Along the Innsbruck Trek you have the possibility to travel either independently and according to your own pace and desired date, or together with a certified ASI mountain guide on a fixed date.
The independent option of the Innsbruck Trek is for all those who love hiking according to their own rhythm. Each day will be adapted to one‘ s request, like getting up in the morning just as you please; choosing a pretty spot during your hike to eat an apple; or adjusting the walking pace to your daily condition. Yet, having no guided tour does not mean to go without service. All accommodations will be booked beforehand, hikers receive detailed travel documents, maps, luggage transport and a 24/7 service number. However: if you choose the independent option without a guide, inspired by the call for adventure, you should bring with you experience with reading hiking maps and route descriptions and have a sense of direction.
In this guided version our guests will hike the Innsbruck Trek together with like-minded people and an experienced certified ASI mountain- and hiking guide. The guide knows the mountains surrounding Innsbruck inside out, and tells on the way the one or other anecdote. Hiking with a group does not necessarily mean to walk with a great number of people: we focus on small groups in order to provide enough time for individual exploration and flexibility. This includes also the option to choose each day between two different routes with various levels of difficulty.
In addition to that, ‘easygoingness‘ will also be on the agenda. As it is the case with the independent option of the Innsbruck Trek, you will hike with a light daysack. Your whole luggage, including also your extra clothes, awaits you already at the accommodation at the end of each hiking day.

Guests‘ impressions about the Innsbruck Trek
A wonderful journey, interesting people and beautiful weather. The tour showed the Innsbruck Region at its best.
What a wonderful trip! Each day you have a different view of Innsbruck.
I was a participant at the 1. Innsbruck Trek in July 2018. Marvellous views, challenging but also easier routes, hiking through different mountain regions with constantly new impressions, a fine harmony amongst the group members & an excellent guide turned this week into a wonderful experience & a trip I can only recommend.
