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 with its four adventure areas: the lively valley, the quiet Verwall, the adventurous Silvretta and the rich Rätikon mountain ranges.

The Montafon Alpine Mosaic is bracketed by 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 have created a Collection for each adventure area and in this one, you’ll find the Tours for the Silvretta adventure area. This mountain range is unpredictable and fascinating, challenging adventurers and border crossers with its rocks, ice and snow. With 3,000-metre (10,000 ft) peaks like the Piz Buin and famous glaciers like Silvretta’s, this dominating high mountain range on the borders between Switzerland, Vorarlberg and Tyrol looks like a film set.

But this wonderful mountain world isn’t reserved for mountaineers alone. Here, we introduce you to five routes: from a playful family hike and a leisurely lake circuit to summit ascents and a challenging day Tour.

If you want to experience the Silvretta even more intensively, you can embark on a three-day hut Tour: the Montafon Silvretta circuit. It takes you close to the high peaks and the glaciers of the mountains.

    This short and eventful hike is particularly suitable for families. It runs high above the tree line, but manages with very few meters in altitude. This is made possible by the Versettla Bahn, which hovers at 2,000 meters from Gaschurn.

    This round takes you to the promising Madrisella. The Versettla Bahn takes you off a few meters in altitude, but there is still enough to turn this route into a full-fledged hike. It takes you into high alpine terrain where sure-footedness is required. But the path is easy to walk and does not have any
