In summer, Montafon welcomes hikers, trecking lovers, mountaineers, rock climbers, cyclists and mountain bike enthusiasts, as well as golfers and anglers.
For nature lovers and hikers, Montafon has over 1100 kilometres of mountain trails. There are 267 hiking routes of varying difficulty. In summer, 6 base lifts are in operation, taking guests through the wooded area to hiking trails higher up the mountain, closer to Alpine lakes, cliffs and peaks. Minibuses run on three routes, taking hikers to more remote mountain routes. More than 40 mountain restaurants and cafés are open to welcome hungry and thirsty travellers.
For routes that require mountaineering skills, such as the hike to the highest peak in the region, Piz Buin, or across one of the small glaciers of Montafon, the local tourist board offers guided group hikes. Tickets for guided hikes on a number of different routes can be bought online or at local tourist office. If you prefer to walk individually, enjoying the silence of the mountains, or in the company of friends, and without the use of ski lifts, you can set off on foot directly from our house. Our location at the foot of the Rätikon Ridge offers a range of easier and more challenging routes, from an hour and a half walk to a full day hike, for example to Ruine Valkastiel, Golmerjock, the so-called Schweizer Tor or Lünersee, one of the highest lakes in the Alps, right on the Swiss border. You can also shorten the route in this direction by using the shuttle minibus service.
Cycling enthusiasts will find well-marked cycleways and paths in Montafon, as well as 260 km of mountain bike routes. Various types of bicycles are available for hire, but guests arriving by private car often bring their own bikes. We offer our own garage for parking.
Rock climbers won't be bored in Montafon. After trying your hand at the rock climbing wall in Latschau, not far from our home, you can go on to forge new achievements by ascending one of the Via Ferrata, of which there is no shortage in Montafon. For example, at the Rif, Lindauer Hütte or Lorünser Wändle, or reach the summit of the Saula Peak via the cliff climbing route.
Ill is a river rich in trout which flows through the valley and our village to the Rhine. It is accessible to licensed angling. Angling licences are available online or at the local sports shop. There is also a specially created fishing pond on the outskirts of the village. For fishing in high mountain lakes such as Lünersee and Silveretta Stausee, licences can be bought online or at the nearest large mountain restaurant right by the lake. We offer a garden barbecue in our garden for grilling and enjoying the fish.
