Free and wild Isel river in Austria’s beautiful Osttirol (Eastern Tyrol) region is the last glacier born river without any dam from its source (in Hohe Tauern National Park) to its confluence (in City of Lienz).

A new hiking trail, the Iseltrail follows the rivers way – from the Dolomite town of Lienz in the green valley basin, surrounded by high alpine peaks, to the source of the river, the glacier gate of the Umbal Kees glacier in the wild Hohe Tauern National Park.

Hiking along Isel is a unique experience – always accompanied by the wild waters and surrounded by natural beauty: rapids and waterfalls, mountain views, riverine forests and meadows, gravel bars with rare plants, gorges, wild mountain forests – the landscape along Isel river has many faces.

I am very honored and happy that I could support the realization of this positive project for nature and climate friendly tourism, which promotes nature conservation and regional economic development, with my concept, location scouting, photography and communication.

So, I have hiked and photographed this extraordinarily beautiful landscape for a number of years – when I was scouting the possibilities for the new hiking trail and working on the Iseltrail route concept, accompanying journalists testing the trail or just exploring wild places as a photographer.

Here you can get some photographic insights into these extraordinary alpine landscapes …
