Climate hike in Saalfelden Leogang

A journey through time on the tracks of ice, water and change. This hike, as a weekly guided tour in the region's summer adventure programme, deals with the effects of the climate crisis. The aim of this project is to impart knowledge on the topics of nature and climate. To show visible and tangible effects and to create an understanding for our future challenges.

  • The average annual temperature in the region is 7.3°C, which is already 1.8°C above the long-term average (1971-2000).

  • In summer, the 25°C mark above 1,000 m is already reached 3 times as often as the long-term average.

  • Droughts, which statistically occur only every 10 years, now occur every 5 years.

  • The maximum daily precipitation per year is 60 mm as a long-term average. If we do nothing about climate change, the maximum daily precipitation per year will increase by 10 %.

On the initiative and organisation of the Saalfelden Leogang Tourism Region, a weekly guided hike was created together with the KLAR Region Pinzgau. This is integrated into the region's summer adventure programme. In this way, it is the first knowledge transfer project on the topic of climate and nature in Austria. The various contents were compiled and prepared by Anna Heuberger (KLAR manager). The guided hikes are included in the Saalfelden Leogang Card for guests; a small fee is charged for the participation of local residents.

In addition to the possibility of a guided hike as part of our summer adventure programme, this tour can also be done independently. This compilation provides a background to the various effects of the climate crisis, the change in the environment and other interesting facts.
