SUMMER IN THE PAZNAUN VALLEY
See - Kappl - Ischgl - Galtür
Do you feel it too?
The feeling of not being able to sit still anymore, like a child on the last day of school. The longing to go out, for unspoiled nature, breathtaking mountain views and pure freedom.
Do you smell it too?
The clear, refreshing mountain air, the undistorted aroma of blooming alpine meadows, the smell of the damp, resinous woods or the sweet scent of sugary pancakes from the lodge kitchen.
Do you feel it too?
The exertion, your legs getting heavier, the need to overcome thoughts of giving up, all of which disappear as soon as reach the challenging summit, the hidden mountain lake or the rustic chalet.
Then you’ve come to the right place here in the alpine Paznaun Valley for your active vacation in the Tyrolean Alps. Whether you’re a hiker, mountaineer, rock climber, mountain biker or nature lover travelling with your family, partner or friends – your instincts will take us directly to us, from the first time to the last.
Hiking in the Tyrolean Alps
We set our sights high in the Paznaun Valley. You can hike from colorful valley fields to rugged high terrain. Enjoy breathtaking views, as well as regional delicacies in quaint mountain huts and rustic chalets.
More than 100 km (60 miles) of marked hiking trails are waiting to be discovered by you.
Many of the hiking tours start immediately in front of our building, or you can take the hiking bus and then the funicular to help you get up the mountain (free of charge with the Silvretta Card Basic). The Hüttentaxis (hut taxis) will also facilitate your tour through the Tyrolean Alps, and we will also gladly organize overnight stays in an alpine hut for you.
Since I’ve been able to stand on my own two feet, hiking has been the best way for me to explore my homeland and has become my great passion. During my childhood my family awakened a fascination in me to see nature and feel the freedom of the mountains. This fascination was reinforced through independent hiking and, last but not least, was rounded off with the appropriate training as a hiking and nature guide.
Being able to share my fascination and knowledge with you is a unique experience for me every single time. We hike to summits that are higher than 3,000 meters (9,800 feet), to hidden mountain lakes and unique locations. We start very early right after sunrise or observe the animals during twilight. We stop for a bite to eat in huts or chalets to replenish our batteries or to talk about the day’s events. Will you join us?
I look forward to our joint hike!
I plan all hikes according to your wishes and needs. Hikes can be reserved on site at any time.
Best regards, Sarah

Vacation on the mountain bike
The Paznaun Valley is a hidden gem in the mountain biking world, and with plenty of highlights. From pleasure cyclists to extreme cyclists, the mountains will meet every need in the Paznaun Valley. Leisurely cycling through the valley together with your family, arriving at chalets and alpine huts over forest paths or maneuvering the bike over hill and dale, everything is possible here.
The Dias and Idalp trails are very easy to reach by gondola, but the motto “Earn your turns” certainly applies here. The diligent bike fanatics are hence rewarded with flowing to technical trails with usually very few people on them. What’s more, the Paznaun Valley is located along the well-known Transalp from Mittenwald to Lake Garda and along the family cycling trail from Vienna to Bregenz.
At the Mattle apartments, cyclists are happy about the secure bike storage area, the washing and service station, and the tips for beautiful bike tours, including guided tours upon request. Our close-by rental partners rent bikes with or without a battery in all sizes for your tour in nature.

There’s nothing better than jumping into the crisp water to cool off after a mountain hike.
