Take your time - A chance to breathe

Get moving in the mountains

Situated at the end of the valley, Gargellen and its mountains offer cross-border hikes into Switzerland with an authentic alpine backdrop. Those who want to take the vertical route can attempt the Gargellner Köpfe via ferrata. And for those who prefer not to walk from Schafberg Hüsli into the valley, mountain carts and a 6 km descent await.

Hiking tip

Madrisa circuit

Mountains know no bounds

In the place where all sorts of smugglers and traders used to hang around and try to evade the customs officers, there is now an easily accessible network of paths through the mountains of the Rätikon. Those who hike across borders at over 2,000 metres above sea level, and in doing so learn their own limits, know what it means: The Madrisa circuit, which is laid out on fully marked alpine paths, rewards hikers with lasting impressions but also requires fitness and athleticism. Over seven hours of hiking against a high-alpine backdrop, many hikers have had to face their own limits. That’s why the Madrisa circuit should be attempted with a Montafon hiking guide. He knows exciting stories from the time of traders and smugglers. There’s no better way to hike on the tracks of the past. A breathtaking experience in nature with a myriad of heavenly vistas.
