Explore a world of unspoilt nature

It certainly takes more than one holiday to really become acquainted with the Montafon region in all its diversity.

The valley is criss-crossed by 500 km of sign-posted hiking trails reaching all the way up into high alpine terrain. The routes promise an unforgettable outdoor mountain experience for families, leisurely walkers and real alpine enthusiasts. Cable-cars and chairlifts make it possible for everyone to conquer the stunning peaks so that it is only the views, and not the ascent, that take your breath away. A host of mountain farms and alpine huts offer hungry hikers refreshments and local specialities. Tips for families: the impressive Balbier Waterfall with its own barbecue area, an invigorating Kneipp water therapy facility, and the unique all-weather swimming pool Aquarena are all just a stone’s throw from  Appart Gastauer.

The guided hikes can be found here.

and E-Bike
A biker’s paradise in the Montafon region

The extensive network of cycle trails, with a wide variety of mountain bike routes and family-friendly panoramic tours, lets you explore and enjoy nature in a very special way.

And if you’ve still got enough energy left in the evening, then you can try out one of the floodlit cycle paths. Descriptions of a total of 28 well-signposted (mountain)bike routes can be found at www.silvretta-montafon.at, from blue routes, simple and suitable for beginners and families (e.g. the Panorama Tour), to red routes for more experienced hobby bikers (e.g. the Smugglers’ Tour up to the Schlapiner Joch), to black routes for real experts with a high level of stamina (e.g. the Piz Buin Tour). The absolute highlight for die-hard bikers, however, is the M3 route, an extreme marathon covering more than 3,500 metres of elevation over a distance of 113.5 km. Some routes can be cycled on e-bikes which are available for rental from Sport Harry located right beside the Apparthotel Gastauer.The fantastic infrastructure with charging stations and servicing make St. Gallenkirch an ideal e-biking destination.

Calling all climbing lovers

Countless fantastic routes for experienced climbers looking for a challenge can be found in the area around Appart Gastauer. And the Montafon region is also a haven for via ferrata fans.

It is thanks to the commitment and diligence of local mountain guides that the number of fixed rope via ferratas on the rock faces have consistently risen. Here in the region you can find routes with levels of difficulty ranging from A to D. Beginners and those who simply want to get a taste of climbing can scale the imposing rock walls of the Montafon along secured routes and enjoy the freedom this sport offers in safety, while experienced climbers and experts can take up new challenges. The practice crag climbing wall in Gaschurn-Partenen is ideal for newcomers to this fascinating sport.

Active Holiday
In search of a new kick

Alongside the classic sports, new, up-and-coming sporting activities are enjoying increasing popularity.

Canyoning and paragliding are particularly popular with those with a thirst for adventure. Beginners can take part in a taster course or take to the air on a tandem flight in the safe hands of an experienced, professional pilot. Our guests can take advantage of a 10% discount with “Tandem Kurt”

Equally adrenaline-inducing is a canyoning tour: Follow the only possible route far away from any tracks or trails, feel the power of the water, overcome your own limits, savour moments of peace and solitude, experience a gorge with all your senses – this dream can become reality here in Montafon!

The “Aktivpark Montafon” with its “Alpenbad” outdoor leisure pool and the forest rope park offers fun for the whole family. In Golm you can whizz down to the valley on rails on the Alpine Coaster toboggan run or down a steel cable on the Flying Fox, while in Gargellen you can take part in guided tours and enjoy mountain adventure on two feet or two wheels. And the high-ropes course guarantees exhilarating thrills.
