Please note

Ötztal Tourismus assumes no liability for the listed tours & tips. It is strongly recommended to enlist a certified mountain guide. Glacier crossings can be made only in a group by using appropriate ropes. Before setting out on a tour you should always inform someone about your destination and when you plan to be back. In high Alpine regions an avalanche transceiver is absolutely required.
