Hiking in the Montafon

Experience unforgettable moments as you hike through the majestic mountains, discover mountain lakes and alpine meadows and enjoy the breathtaking views of the peaks. Hiking in the Montafon not only means going far, but also gathering far-reaching impressions and experiences that will stay with you for a long time.

In summer, 1,161 kilometres of hiking trails are waiting to be explored by nature lovers in the Montafon. The southernmost valley in Vorarlberg is surrounded by three impressive mountain ranges: In the north-west by the striking limestone cliffs of the Rätikon, in the south by the partially glaciated Silvretta and in the north-east by the idyllic Verwall European nature reserve.

This marvellous region inspires hikers and climbers alike! Whether easy, medium or challenging half-day, day or multi-day tours - in the mountains of the Rätikon, the Verwall or the Silvretta, no wish remains unfulfilled.

Would you like to explore the treasures of the alpine landscape and stop off in numerous alpine huts, or are you looking for inner peace and contemplation? The diverse mountain landscape of the Montafon offers all of this and allows you not only to discover nature, but also to find yourself.

If you like, you can take part in guided hikes with the experienced hiking guides from BergePlus from May to the end of October and explore the beauty of the mountains in company.
