Hiking Tours in Ischgl

Helpful tips and hints

You’re a mountain lover and experienced hiker? You love challenging tours, steep, rocky terrain and exposed sections? Or are you rather looking for a relaxed stroll together with your children on secured paths? No matter what you’re looking for – Ischgl has the perfect hiking tour for every taste and skill level:


 Easy hiking trails are relatively easy hiking - & mountain trails that can be narrow and steep. There are no direct passages at risk of falling.


Moderate hiking trails are mostly narrow, often steep and can have passages at risk of falling. In addition, short insured walking passages (e.g., wire rope) can occur.


 Difficult hiking trails are narrow, often steep and have passages at risk of falling. There are parts of assured walking passages and/or simple climbing spots that require the use of the
hands. Surefootedness and head for heights are essential.

Stay calm in an emergency and notify Mountain Rescue (Alpine emergency signal: 140)

  • Protect injured person against injuries from crash, falling rocks, avalanches, etc.
  • First Aid (breathing, circulation, stopping bleeding, splints etc.)
  • Protect injured person against injuries due to the effect of the weather (wind, rain, sun, etc.)
  • Never leave an injured person by themselves. Talking to them and providing support is essential for their survival.

Alpine emergency signal: at regular intervals, six times in one minute make a visual or acoustic signal – then pause for 1 minute –repeat, until you get a reply.

In the event that it is not possible to raise the alarm for help from the accident site: A messenger should make the descent to fetch assistance – but the injured party should never be left alone! If possible do not make the descent alone.

The messenger should have the following written details: Precise location of the accident, type of injury, Number of injured parties and uninjured parties in the group, they should also leave any clothing, rain gear and food they do not require for the injured party to use.

 

  • Be fit for the mountains, rather than looking to get “fit thanks to the mountains”.
  • Do not go mountain hiking without careful tour planning.
  • Bring the correct equipment and nothing you do not require for the tour planned.
  • Get information about the tour and the weather conditions.
  • Rest for 10 minutes every two hours.
  • Eat and drink plenty during the tour.
  • Never leave the signposted route!
  • Cut short the tour if there is any danger or if the weather conditions worsen.
  • Emergency equipment (First Aid box, a bivouac sack, pocket torch, mobile phone) should be in everyone‘s rucksack.
  • Stay calm in an emergency and notify Mountain Rescue (Alpine emergency signal: 140)

 

There’s no holiday for you without your dog? The Paznaun offers perfect conditions for a hiking holiday with your four-legged friend! 

  • Check with your hotel whether dogs are allowed.
  • Not all hiking trails are suitable for dogs. Check the terrain of your tour in advance and carefully consider whether your dog will be able to walk the whole distance.   
  • Make sure that there is plenty of water to drink for your dog along the trail or at mountain huts. If not, pack sufficient water for your dog!
  • Do you know how your dog reacts when coming across other animals (cows, dogs, etc.)?
