From Ischgl to exhilarating mountain passes on your motor bike.
Until the end of September there are around 40 of the latest motorbikes available for excursions for interested fans of two wheeled vehicles – all in perfect condition of course. The fee for a day test for those who are able to present a Paznaun guest card, is 70 or 90 Euro (depending on the category of motorbike); without a guest card it is 100 or 120 Euro per day. All motorcyclists must have third party and comprehensive insurance, with an excess of € 500. The excess is to be paid by credit card or cash prior to test rides.
Whoever comes ‘without’ – can test nonetheless.
After all, for a small fee men’s and women’s Rukka suits are available to test, as are Schuberth helmets and Daytona boots. All you have to do is bring your driving licence with you … so anyone who wants can– even when travelling with the family, take their car and then start out from Paznaun with the perfect safety equipment and the motorbike of their choice on an all-day bike tour. All test riders are given a special day rucksack to loan, in which route maps and other items can be stored. All in all, detailed information together with a well-structured route map for 14 different day tours in Tyrol, to Bavaria, Vorarlberg, South Tyrol and into Switzerland are on offer. 30 passes and thousands of bends attract fans here, persuading them to head through the lovely Alps.
Either proceed directly from the town into Tyrol’s hiking realm, taking the cable cars up, and immerse yourself while up at the top in the impressive Silvretta mountains; or take the hiking bus to the neighbouring towns, which are also the starting point for many hiking routes. More than 1000 kilometres of hiking routes are available. There are of course suitable refreshments on offer at the many Alpine lodges and inns which are open in summer right the way through to autumn.
INVESTIGATE THE SURROUNDING AREA OFF YOUR OWN BAT
On the many and diverse tours in the Paznaun region beginner’s through to pros get to descend into the surrounding valleys, climb mountains, and discover waterfalls, reservoirs, glaciers and much more. There are also some lovely adventures and tranquil times to be experienced in the natural surroundings. Ideal to regain some of that energy which day-to-day living robs you of.
For everyone who enjoys being out and about as part of a group, the tourism association in Paznaun provides a joint hiking weekly programme of events. The routes are for experienced hikers and for beginners and leisure walkers alike.
For the most part the tours proceed on picturesque routes to cosy Alpine lodges and traditional inns. Combined with the fresh air you can re-harmonise body, spirit and soul. Incidentally, while hiking together it’s easier to get to know other guests and you can sense the warmth of a convivial atmosphere.
Trails of very varying characteristics and enchanting panorama views accompany the hiker up to the top. Leaving behind the lush Alpine pastures and romantic larch woods at the lower valley at the start of the trail, you proceed across steep, stony sections in high Alpine terrain to rugged peaks and rock formations, and then finally head back into the valley again. The towns are as full of contrasts as the landscape is. The spectrum ranges from Alpine bareness, to Mediterranean abundance.
The path proceeds initially via the new, spectacular adventure hiking trail from Ischgl to the Idalp (2320m). This two-hour hike covers a 7.5 kilometre, re-designed hiking trail through three Alpine vegetation zones and across suspension bridges. It is certainly quicker to get to Idalp on the Silvretta cable car. From here, it is just a five minute walk to the adventure trail in the wonderfully arranged ‘Vider Truja adventure park’.
The circular hiking trail– surrounded by the wonderful panorama of the Tyrol mountains – passes through a wonderful kingdom of water. It is not just little guests who are fascinated by the water mills, the water playground, the climbing frame and a water management system.

Enjoy new culinary peaks in Paznaun!
If you are one of those people who when hiking don’t just enjoy the incomparable change in the scenery from idyllic to rugged, and the unique natural surroundings with Edelweiß and gentian, ibex, wild chamois and marmots, but also look forward to stopping off for refreshments, you will find the very routes and addresses for Alpine lodges and inns they are looking for in the Paznaun region around Ischgl.

In contrast to standard climbing, a via ferrata can be climbed without any need of a great deal of advanced knowledge, and less equipment is needed. Mountain shoes, helmet, lap belt and a safety lock will suffice – all this is available from the local sports shops in Ischgl. Safety is assured by the pre-tightened hand-holds, steps and steel cable, so a via ferrata route in Tyrol shouldn’t present a problem, even for less experienced mountaineers – provided that your equipment, your ability to assess your own skill level and to take responsibility for yourself and for other climbers is commensurate. Indeed – those who don’t have much experience of a ‘via ferrata’ should definitely climb with a guide who will show you the basic concepts, exercises, and also some tips and tricks. An ideal way to get great results quickly.
The water playground which has a variety of wood and stone elements, along with a viewing platform and a small quiet area with play figures, is the perfect place to enjoy a rest. Here guests not only find tranquillity but new inspiration too. When it was being set up, particular attention was paid to maintaining the wetlands.
Fun and diversity are on the programme here with children of the same age and specialist supervision. All children up to age 10 are welcome at the Kids Club. Variety is a priority here. In summer, the children will be accompanied by Willi the forest gnome, who will explore nature with them and prepare experiments. The children are supervised by expert child care assistants. This enables parents to go walking in the Silvretta peaks and enjoy their holiday to the full.
Children can enjoy a varied weekly programme throughout the valley. There is something on offer at a different location each day
