The Defereggen Valley
The Defereggen Valley, framed by the majestic mountain ranges of the Alps, is home to the village of St. Jakob. This picturesque area is nestled at the base of many lovely hiking trails, ski areas and the Hohe Tauern Nature Park. In summer get “lost” in the fuchsia swaths of blooming rhododendron as you enjoy many of the activities the area has to offer: hiking, biking, e-biking, horseback riding, climbing and paragliding. When the sun gives way to snow, further opportunities await you: skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing and ice skating.
