Hiking through the Habachtal – Emerald Path

The Habachtal is the valley with the highest amount of minerals in the Hohe Tauern. In combination with fascinating mountain experiences and traditional hospitality, this valley of the Hohe Tauern Nationalpark can be called a sparkling gemstone.


The Emerald Path allows hikers to experience the beautiful landscapes of the Wildkogel Arena on the one hand and provides them with information about the mineralogy and geology of the Habachtal on the other. The highlight of the path will be the hunt for emeralds – with a little patience you might be lucky to find one for yourself.
