Holidays in Summer

Hiking

St. Anton am Arlberg is known as the cradle of alpine skiing and is popular for its challenging steep descents. What few people know: Where in winter the ski slopes are covered in deep snow, in summer an amazing flora and fauna comes to life, a spectacular scenery that one wouldn't expect. Between the mountains, small streams ripple with snowmelt and all around, meadows are teeming with colourful flowers, a rare natural spectacle in our days. In June, alpine roses grow on the many mountain slopes and there is peace and tranquility as far as the eye can see.

Visitors can discover this unique natural landscape on numerous hiking trails around St. Anton am Arlberg. 300 kilometres of marked hiking trails take visitors to 30 alpine pastures, peaks, mountain lakes and countless other spots that are often only known from postcards.

Safe in the mountains with the Arlberg mountain guides

Challenging mountain tours should be carefully planned. Depending on the tour good weather, the right (climbing) equipment, surefootedness, a head for heights and experience are essential. Book an experienced mountain guide who takes you to the most beautiful alpine places of the Arlberg region and safely back down to the valley.

The confidence that a hiking guide can give you about his alpine know-how, his knowledge about the state of the trails and the dangers that could arise on the hike as well as the estimated duration and tempo of the hike and breathing, all contribute to making the hike easy and stress free. Hiking with a guide means that you really will be guided allowing you to switch off and really enjoy your time in the outdoors.
