------

Who needs a beach?! I prefer summer in the mountains. Why? Well, I’ve rounded up ten of the best reasons for spending a summer in Tirol:

1. The Scent of Mountain Pastures

The sound of cowbells. The warm summer sun on your skin. Fond childhood memories. Awesome.

2. Pure Refreshment on an Alpine Pasture Hut

An ice-cold beer is that perfect reward for the hiking efforts of the day. With stunning views of peaks as far as the eye can see.

3. Tirol’s Alpine Lakes!!

When the sun runs hot, there is nothing wrong with finding your mountain equilibrium with a dip in one of Tirol’s aquatic gems. It’s going to be a quick plunge, but if you are up for the thrill, you’ll earn the chill. And those stunning views!

4. Cool Nights

No sweltering temperatures. No noisy air conditioning. Just a good night’s sleep.

5. Wildflower Viewing

There are few scenes in nature that rival blooming Alpine flowers: In the summer, high-mountain valleys are speckled with red Alpine roses, a form of rhododendron. Breathtakingly beautiful.

6. Thunderstorm in the Mountains

There’s nothing like a thunderstorm in the mountains! A fascinating spectacle!

7. Sunrise Walks

When the skies turn into a fiery, warming “Alpine glow” over the mountains at sunrise. What a way to start the day!

8. Beautiful in the Rain, too

Maybe it is even most beautiful in the rain?

9. Mountain Views

Having a picturesque view of the mountains practically anywhere you go in Tirol is incredible. They are awe-inspiring, supernaturally beautiful, and their size is truly humbling. Are they even more beautiful when the warm weather comes around? We couldn’t agree on that one.

10. Snow

In fact, you can even ski if you want to. Yep, that’s right – up on one of Tirol’s glacier ski resorts.
