Active days in the Tyrolean snow

Winter holidays in the Paznaun region

Four villages, one valley, countless winter sports activities – snow and the Paznaun region are a perfect combination for family winter holidays full of action. As soon as the mountain tops of the Tyrolean Alps are covered in snow, it’s the start of a very active time of year for many of us.

Discover the most beautiful side of winter in the four villages of Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See! During skiing and snowboarding at snow-sure ski resorts. During cross-country skiing, ski touring and winter hiking away from the slopes. Or during one of the many other fun winter sports activities in the Paznaun.

Book your accommodation, pack a warm outdoor outfit – and off you go to enjoy …


The good news: The ski season in the Paznaun region is extra-long. Thanks to the ski resorts’ favourable location, many slopes can be skied from end of November up until spring. The Silvretta Arena in Ischgl is Tyrol’s third-biggest ski resort. The smaller ski resorts of Galtür, Kappl and See also offer plenty of space for winter sports with the whole family. 

Our tip: Stopping by at one of the region’s traditional mountain huts is just as pleasurable as swooshing down the slopes. After all, the most delicious Tyrolean specialities are waiting there for you!

Cross-country skiing & ski touring

Leave your tracks in the snow far away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the silence high above the valley! In the Paznaun region, you can savour unique experiences every day. For instance, during cross-country skiing on 75 kilometres of cross-country trails in Galtür and Ischgl. Or during splendid ski tours amid the impressive three-thousand-metre summits of the Silvretta mountains – jam-packed with breathtaking powder descents!

Powder tip: Did you know that Kappl is a real freeride paradise?

Winter hiking

Walking along the snow-covered winter hiking trails of the Paznaun region feels like a winter’s fairy tale come true. 60 kilometres of hiking trails offer routes for every age and skill level. Or how about enjoying relaxed holiday moments out in the glistening snow during snowshoeing? Or a magical torchlight hike?

Funsports for the whole family

The family-friendly ski resorts of the Paznaun region offer everything that adventure-loving kids could dream of: beginners’ slopes, ski schools, childcare facilities, a mascot, family slopes and much more. Plus, there are plenty of amazing activities waiting for you away from the slopes:

  • sledging
  • lantern walks
  • horse-drawn carriage rides
  • outdoor ice skating 

What’s more, a visit to Sunny Mountain Adventure Park in Kappl is a real must for action-loving families. The 25,000-square-metre children’s area offers snow fun galore!
