Deep in the Texelgruppe Nature Park, the ten Spronser Seen lakes are situated on a high plateau northwest of Tirolo/Dorf Tirol. Spread over 30 hectares at an altitude of 2,500 m, the mountain lakes were created by retreating glaciers.
The lakes are famous for their brilliant colors and varied sizes and depths.
Hikers reach the Spronser Seen lakes above Tirolo through a unique mountain landscape. In this barren terrain, Ibexes roam freely and marmots scuttle between the rocky outcrops.

Turn-by-turn directions

Route: From the Leiter Alm, take path # 24 in the direction of the Hochgang refuge hut. There, turn right and ascend on a steep path to the Hochgangscharte (2,441 metres) - only for people who do not get dizzy easily. At the gap, turn left and take path # 6 to the Spronser Valley and the Oberkaser Alm (2,131 metres / open during the summer). Take path # 25 to your right and pass the Kaser- and Pfitscherlacke and make your way from there to the Karjoch (2,230 metres / Taufenscharte). Descend on a steep and windy path to the Leiter Alm. The round trip can also be made in the other direction.
