Mountain hiking, mountain biking, climbing and much more! There’s no better place for active summer holidays in the Alps full of sport and recreation than Galtür. We are happy to introduce the wide range of sport and leisure time possibilities which are offered.
From June to October you get your personal Silvretta Card for the duration of your stay. This is your free entrance ticket for all mountain railways in the villages Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See, without limitations, every day and as often as you want. In addition, you can also use the buses from Landeck to the Bielerhöhe (2040 m) for free. Free entrance to the outdoor and indoor swimming pools as well as bathing lakes.
Culture also doesn’t go short: The Alpinarium Galtür as well as the Mathias Schmid Museum in Ischgl also open the doors for free to you. Even the participation in the weekly programme and the family and children’s programme of the Tourist Association Paznaun are free of charge.
With the Silvretta Card you can also use the Silvretta High Alpine Road for free. We would be happy to send you a voucher in advance so that you can use the Silvretta High Alpine Road for free on your arrival day.
In the Paznaun you find a hiking path network which extends over 1000 km in the whole Paznaun and over approximately 200 km in Galtür. At our place you find a highly diverse hiking area. The offer ranges from family hiking paths to challenging hiking and climbing paths. Moreover, the high altitude also enables to go on brilliant glacier hiking tours. The circular walk along the reservoir is highly recommended.
Galtür and the whole Paznaun are a paradise for mountain bikers and known for it’s challenging mountainbike trails. Beginners find appropriate trails for their first tries as well. 36 tracks on approx. 1000 km guide passionate mountain bikers through the magnificent landscape around Galtür. Some of them lead up to 3000 m. Those trails which only lead across already existing mountain and forest roads are equally suited for downhill and cross-country bikers.
Every year the universally known Ischgl Ironbike is the absolute summer highlight – a marathon over 42 km (Ischgl – Samnaun – Ischgl) with overall 2500 m difference in altitude. Bikers can use many mountain railways and chair lifts for free with the Silvretta Card.
You cling to the rope, look upwards. The fingers are searching for the right grip, whilst your feet have already found a good footing. Another part is conquered! During climbing tours rushes of adrenaline are guaranteed. Whether you are a beginner who wants to get a taste of climbing for the first time or an acrobat who feels at home in bold rock faces – in Galtür there’s something for every climbing type. From via ferrata for practice to climbing routes in various levels of difficulty from 2 to 8+. The Alpinarium in Galtür with it’s 24 m high avalanche wall is as attractive for climbers as the climbing gym Jamtalhütte.
Beginners can also go on a guided climbing tour with one of the professional mountain guides and Alpine Schools. In this way mountain excursions are more safe, as local mountain guides know the mountains like the back of their hand.
Nordic Walking, fast and rhythmic walking with special Nordic Walking poles, gets more and more popular. During summer holidays in Galtür holiday makers can give their body a treat whilst doing Nordic Walking amidst the picturesque landscape of the Paznaun. Did you know that calorie consumption is 46 % higher with Nordic Walking than with walking in a normal way and pace. This effective full-body training leads you through the surrounding of Galtür, along mountain torrents, across gently waved Alpine meadows, sometimes up, sometimes down, but never too steep.
In collaboration with family Wolfart we offer you the possibility to get to know Nordic walking as well as it’s history, health effects and the right rhythm and technique.
Two minutes from our hotel you find the tennis courts. Show your tennis skills in front of a unique mountain scenery. Thanks to the indoor tennis center in Galtür you can play tennis regardless of weather conditions. We would be happy to organise a trainer or tennis partner for you.
