Hiking in Wipptal – Photo Tour to Blaser Mountain

The hiking tour on Blaser mountain is an easy but amazingly scenic hike.

It’s an amazing mountain hike for landscape and mountain photographers in the middle of the Tyrolean Wipptal – easily accessed from the Brenner motorway.

Wipptal’s Blaserhütte huts: one of the most beautiful hiking tours in Bavaria

If you are looking for peace and quiet, but still want the amenities of a mountain hut, you should definately consider this hike – especially if you are speeding over the Brenner motorway and in need a long pause or stay over, this is a wonderful alpine experience that should not be missed.

Those who choose hiking trail 30 will find a picturesque and alpine pasture landscape at about 1800m above sea level. Weather-beaten haystacks have been scattered across these meticulously tended alpine meadows, between which rarely used paths that have been laid out naturally over time. Even on a sunny Sunday, with summery temperatures in the golden autumn, you rarely see more than a handful of people here.

Directions: Hiking the Blaser

The hike on the Blaser starts from the municipality of Trins In Tyrol, Austria. There are plenty of parking spaces available. Sporty hikers can immediately take the steep hiking trails, most choose trail number 30. Those who like it more comfortable use the wide and not too steep farm road named Forstweg. Many mountain bikers also make use of this path. It’s well signposted and leads up to the Blaser huts, 2100 meters above sea level. The ‘dome-shaped’ summit is only 5-10 minutes away from the huts. The summit usually lives up to the definition of its name – directly translated from German to English as “blower mountain”, it is often particularly windy here.

When checking their gear list, landscape photographers should not only prepare for the wide views of the Wipptal valley, the three peaks of the Tribulaune and Olperer mountain, but pack their macro lens too. According to studies, Blaser mountain’s flat domed, alpine landscape offers the greatest variety of flora species in the Alps. Landscape photographers are recommended to hike up to the Blaser in autumn, when the upper parts of the alpine pastures have already begun to change into shades of red and brown, especially when fog is expected in the Wipptal valley. This can have a particularly beautiful effect when the first snow has already fallen on the northern summit regions in September or October.

Those who wish for a little more of a sporty challenge with a preference for steeper hiking paths will continue from Blaser mountain into the west and treat themselves to one of the surrounding jagged summit tours, for example up to Serles mountain.
