Kaunertal Valley(Austria)

disabled persons on ski resortWelcome to Kaunertal Valley

The Kaunertal valley is a land of continuous contrasts which mirror the changing of the seasons: luscious green, eternal ice, babbling brooks, sweet-smelling pastures, snow-covered forests – all of which are made accessible to guests with reduced mobility, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience.

Nature and culture, past and present – in Kaunertal it is all woven into the fabric of daily life.

The Kaunertal valley, with its wonderful natural scenery and picturesque mountain villages, is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Tyrol.


For over 30 years Kaunertal has hosted initiatives for barrier-free holidays. People with physical disabilities can enjoy fully accessible holiday. The offer is suitable for wheelchair users, mobility impaired individuals and families with small children and strollers.

Barrier-free cars and lifts on the Kaunertal glacier offer a complete range of activities for this target group, both in summer and in winter. The Kaunergrat Nature Park is wheelchair-accessible all the way from the exhibition space to the terrace. Innovation is key, with new developments regularly introduced. The real key to success, howver, is the highly trained staff with their years of experience in hosting people with disabilities.

Sustainable tourism is also a priority in Kaunertal. A holiday in the valley offers personal contact by staying with local hosts, letting you enjoy home cooked food and local produce in a beautiful natural setting. You can also stay in private rooms and apartments.
