Weekly night tour for romantics

It´s a kind of magic: romantic torchlight tour along "Urprungweg"

Both beginners and real stamina experts feel at easy - by day and night - on the three kilometer long Ursprungweg route covering some 427 altitude meters. The narrow track switch-backs from the Hoch-Imst base station through the forest up to Untermarkter Alm (1,500 m). The Ursprungweg route appears particularly idyllic every Wednesday evening.

Step by step in the torch light

The headlamp stays safely in the backpack during the ascent. A subtle touch of romance complements this outstanding sporty adventure. Passionate ski touring fans or snowshoe hikers follow the trail marked with countless flickering torches. You will soon find your own rhythm and pace when you conquer the pleasantly lit climb. Some use the time to talk with sports buddies while others just enjoy peace and silence.

Yearning for a hearty snack?

After a one-hour ascent (depending on your stamina and training), everyone will meet for a stop at Untermarkter Alm. Nobody has to return to the valley hungry: in addition to daytime cooking, the innkeepers prepare delights also in the evening. Every day from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm a varied selection of regional products - some even organic - are served. The guests themselves provide for the jovial hut atmosphere, accompanied by live music on some evenings. And if you are still not tired enough there is even more nighttime touring fun: every Friday evening, the ski and tobogganing region invites you to join the ultimate Touring Night (incl. floodlit pistes) between 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm. Get ready and let's go!
