Ranging from cozy apartments and bed and breakfasts to lovely inns and fine hotels - comfortable hiking accommodations spread over the valley offer something special for active summer vacationers. They provide useful information and competent advice on the variety of hiking tours in Ötztal and also offer guided walks. Some lodgings are even awarded the Austrian Hiking Quality Seal. What they all have in common is the excellent location at the heart of one of Tirol's most beautiful hiking regions and the passion for sustainable tourism in close touch with nature. In cooperation with Ötztal's farmer-to-consumer direct marketers, the accommodations increasingly focus on regional products. For example farmer's bread, meat and dairy products, fruit, vegetables, jams, honey and juices as well as sheep wool products, natural soaps etc. The hosts are also happy to give recommendations on hiking stop-off points where homemade Ötztal specialties are served.
