Mountain experiences

Your unforgettable mountain summer in Montafon.

The Montafon is in the south of Vorarlberg, and the south west end of Austria. It is surrounded by three mighty mountain ranges: To the north west are the striking chalk cliffs of the Rätikon, to the south you meet the crystalline central Alpine stone of the sometimes glaciated Silvretta and to the north east the Verwall. A wonderful region, which delights walkers and climbers! Whether easy, medium or more demanding half day, day and multiple day tours - in the mountain world of the Rätikon, the Verwall or the Silvretta your every wish is fulfilled.

If you like, walking guides from BergAktiv will accompany you on guided walks from May to the end of October.

Our tip:

The Hochjoch lift in Schruns takes you in the large cabins of the panoramic cable car and with the double chairlift, from the well known international summer spa town and winter sports location of Schruns-Tschagguns from 700 m to 2,300 m. On the Hochjoch, you can enjoy gorgeous panoramic views of 200 summits, and the view of Lake Constance in the distance, with all your senses.

A total of 500 km of marked hiking paths lead across lush meadows, through forests, from hut to hut, past Alpine farms, along heights and ridges to the summits of the Montafon mountain ranges of Verwall, Rätikon and Silvretta. Hiking buses, cable cars and chair lifts make the paths shorter and easier.
