The fantastic mountain scenery of the Tux Alps is one of the many impressing nature highlights you'll find on this Powertrail. The trail is easy to reach because it's situated in the center of the Tyrolean Inn Valley. Nevertheless this Geocache Tour still offers pure nature: "Call of the Eagle" is a pure hiking trail, because it's not possible to collect the caches by car. You could use the mountain bike from the part of Volderwildbad to Tulfein hut (Tulfein Alm). From now on you can only continue by hiking. In order to complete this Powertrail you have to plan for two days.
As overnight accommodation you can choose the Glungezer hut (Glungezerhütte) or the Voldertal hut (Voldertalhütte)
Please inform yourself in advance about the weather conditions and take care in high alpine terrain!
