Galtür is a hot spot for cross country skiing, with 73km of well maintained trails for both classic and skating styles. Cross country is an excellent pursuit in it‘s own right, but also an especially good alternative to downhill skiing on the days when there is a lot of wind/cloud/snow as the trails are lower and often protected by the trees. Like the winter hiking trails, many trails have the option to ski in one direction and come back by bus.
Equipment is available from our friends at Intersport Wolfart.
The Paznauan valley is covered in well groomed winter hiking trails that connect the towns of Wirl, Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See. Some hidden delights you might find on your wanderings include a tiny chapel in the woods, quaint cottages, picturesque streams, spectacular mountain lakes, cosy mountain huts, and wildlife such as deer, foxes or snow rabbits.
The trails are well maintained and snow shoes are not required, although we do recommend proper snow boots to keep your toes warm! Detailed information on the walking trails is provided in booklets available from reception, or the Galtür Tourist Information Office, or online here.
Immerse yourself in a completely unique world. When snowshoeing in the Paznaun Valley you will forget your stressful everyday life and enjoy peaceful solitude. Accompanied by your guide and the splendid wilderness, you will experience the Paznaun Valley up close and be left feeling energised and inspired. Even children can enjoy this special winter experience. In fresh snow, snowshoes will help you to cover the open country without any problems. No skiing knowledge is required.
Sledding or tobogganing is a fun way to enjoy our snowy slopes. At Kappl you can sled all day, every day on their special sledding-only piste. Night sledding every Tuesday.
Ischgl offers night sledding under lights on Mondays & Thursdays. Sleds available to rent on site, wear your ski outfit with snow boots.
A moment from the Galtür Dorfplatz is the Ice rink, here you can hire skates & curling equipment for a fun few hours.
