The same applies to romantic relationships as it does to long-distance hiking trails: you have to find the right one. At least the second must-do is quite easy in Ötztal. Because there is something for every long-distance hiker's taste in terms of total distance, walking time, difficulty or overnight comfort. Some hike from hotel to hotel close to the valley floor (like on Ötztaler Urweg), others on high-altitude trails from hut to hut and get a taste of the three thousand meter high air (e.g. on Ötztal Trek). Some are on the road for days or even weeks (like on E5 long distance hiking route), others pick just some single stages. To start your long-distance hiking career, it is best to choose easy and shorter tours close to the valley floor, that are very frequented. Some routes even offer guided tours or luggage transport (e.g. on Ötztaler Urweg).
