In Austria’s Montafon Valley, you’re immersed in a geologically phenomenal area. Millions of years ago, the largest geological diversity in the Alps was formed here in a small area. The Alpine Mosaic Montafon adventure leads you along themed trails, on valley and mountain circuits, and on local routes through the many facets of the region’s four adventure areas: the lively valley, the quiet Verwall, the adventurous Silvretta and the rich Rätikon mountain ranges.
The Montafon Alpine Mosaic is makes the most of the Montafon Hut Circuit. Across 13 stages, you hike from hut to hut through all four areas. You can find more information about this wonderful long-distance hiking trail in this Collection: komoot.com/collection/1576938.
We’ve created a Collection for each area and in this one, you’ll find the Tours from the Verwall adventure area. The Verwall is a true natural jewel – in this primeval landscape you’ll discover different habitats with mystical moors, sparkling mountain lakes and fabulous forests. If you’re looking for seclusion and silence, the Verwall is the right place for you.
This mountain range stretches from Vorarlberg to Tyrol and is characterised by its extensive solitude and unspoilt nature, guaranteed by its status as a Natura 2000 site. Here, you’ll find many rare plant, animal and bird species.
Across 12 hiking Tours, you can discover this unique habitat in peace and quiet – from the simple family Tour to the challenging summit climb lasting several days. You follow deserted paths, discover plenty of variety and gain insights into the history of the Verwall range: many legends and stories are entwined around the former mining region and the deep forests and gorges. The Verwall adventure area is the right place to unwind in untouched nature.
Here are the Collections for the other three adventure areas:
