In summer the famous Geierwally games take place every year on the open-air stage between rocks and mountain walls. Elbigenalp is a typical woodcarving village with numerous carving workshops. There is also the possibility for hobby carvers and those interested in carving to take various courses at the carving schools. From Elbigenalp you can hike up to the Gibleralm and Kasermandl. One hiking recommendation is the Geierwally circular trail, which leads via Kasermandl into Bernhardstal to Gibleralm or vice versa. From Elbigenalp you can also reach the Bernhardseck Hut and the Hermann-von-Barth Hut. The Hermann-von-Barth-Hut is a popular starting point for climbers who want to reach the Wolfsebnerspitze (2433 m). The local mountain of Elbigenalp is the Rotwand (2262 m). Starting point for these tours is the Geierwally car park in the centre of the village. In Elbigenalp there is also an open-air swimming pool between Obergiblen and Grünau, directly on the main road.
