The “Rosengarten Schlucht” @ Imst

In Tyrol we stopped at a very nice camping in Imst (Activ Camping), and because we really liked it there we decided to stay for 2 nights. The owner recommended us to hike up the Rosengarten canyon, which we did.

Of course at this time of the year the canyon was already open and we could walk directly from the camping ground into the centre of Imst where this hike starts.
Path leading through the canyon
Wild roses grow in this valley, which gave this canyon its name
Watch your head!

I spotted yellow poppys along the path!
The river has only a small gap between the rocks
The path climbs up the mountains as you follow the river

The hike up the canyon took us nearly an hour before we reached
Hoch-Imst, where the skiing area of Imst offers a lot of activities in summer as well. The lift was running to get people up to the Alpine coaster and
the Alm restaurants up in the mountains. But you could also go on an
electric Trial bike, rent a Segway, eat, drink, let your children play
on the playground and so on. For us this was too crowded, so we walked down another path along the Hachleschlucht, another canyon not as wild as the Rosengarten but very peaceful.

Back in town we found a Restaurant for lunch and a supermarket for some shopping, before we went back to our camping. The weather had turned cloudy and rainy so we had an excuse for an afternoon nap ūüėČ
