Six theme paths entice young and old in the magnificent mountain scenery of the Tux Valley. Starting with eternal ice of the Hintertux Glacier over the hills and meadows of the mountain slopes down into the beautiful valley of the Tux brook: Together with "Gletscherfloh" Luis and his various adventures, children and adults dive into the unique adventure worlds!
Ready, set, go! Around the hiking area “Sommerberg” an exciting adventure course with tricky riddles is awaiting you. Together with Gletscherfloh Luis all detectives experience an exciting hike with mystery treasures! Small glaciers detectives explore the mystery of the glacier with the help of interactive displays. The treasure map is available at the valley station of the Hintertux Glacier. All children up to 10 years are transported for free, not only to Sommerbergalm (2,100 m), but up to 3,250 m to the Glacier Bug Park. There at 3,250 m you can race down the tubing run and start a snowball fight in the middle of summer.
Comprehend and understand - Mother Nature has created extraordinary and unique habitat for all of us! Starting point of the natural world is the middle station of the “Finkenberger Almbahnen”. From there many different habitats along the marsh trail are here to explore. The special moorland soil can be discovered and closely examined through an experiment. A short break in the hanging chairs or in the listening island, where the sounds of the environment can be perceived much more intensively and consciously, displace children and adults in deep amazement. Shortly before the end of the walk the unique island of relaxation in the middle of the fairytale forest is achieved.
Here visitors immerse into the unique and fascinating world of animals. Adults and children discover very interesting information in various game stations. In the animal world the interaction between the organisms is brought closer to the visitors. Who crawls there? Appearances are deceptive!? How many ants you discover in the animal treasure hunt? These and many other questions are answered playfully along the wildlife trail. A lot of balance is needed while balancing on the millipede and when climbing the spider web in the circus of fleas. The spirit of discovery is awakened in the animal treasure hunt and with water games!
Go on a discovery tour in the plant world and learn more about the local flowers such as daisies, lady's mantle, bluebells, but also the various tree species of the Tux Valley. Test your skill and courage in the climbing net, in the balancing poles and when shooting cones or in the haystack!
Dive into the fascinating world of water! Even from a distance you can see the "Floating Faucet", who is also the start and end point of the hike. How much water do we need? What are thermal springs? These questions are answered along the trail. Together with the mascot "Gletscherfloh Luis" adults and children discover the power of water and the transformation ability of the essential natural element. Courage and a good deal of skill is required at the large waterfall swing and target shooting with water pumps!
From the devil's bridge (Teufelsbrücke) or the cemetry bridge in Finkenberg starts the easy round walking path (trail number 32, 32a and 32b) among the beautiful protective area "Glocke". Several presentation boards inform you about the plant-world around the 70m deep gorge!
