Walking tours

Fabulous walks, fun in the fresh air and a chance to discover the fascination of the natural world.

Decisions, decisions. Do you simply want to head for the hills? Would you prefer to climb to the top of the mountain? How about a thematic folklore walk, or one following in the tracks of the old Walser tribes? Maybe you just fancy a stroll beside a mountain stream? On your own, with someone special, with the family, or in a group with an experienced mountain guide from Arlberg Alpin or our own hotel walking guide from the Filomena? On foot, or on two, three or four wheels? Whatever you decide, with over 350 km of well-marked footpaths, the Arlberg region offers a plethora of possibilities. Come and discover all the loveliest spots for yourself!

Follow folklore trails or take a walk to see Europe's largest colony of ibex

Special thematic walking tours are also available: explore, for example, the secret folklore trails between Lech-Zürs and the Arlberg. Or discover the various paths making up the Lech Way, all of which have their starting point in the village. Since the walks are all of varying degrees of difficulty, they make the perfect outing for just about anyone, from families to the toughest athlete.
