ARRANGEMENT OF THE HIKING- & MOUNTAIN TRAILS INTO LEVELS OF DIFFICULTY 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 MOUNTAIN 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 MOUNTAIN 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.

4


10 TIPS • 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 rest 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) 5


PROTECTED ALPINE PLANTS Enjoy the superb variety of plants in our natural alpine surroundings but please adhere to the statutory regulations with regard to the protection of the local flora. It is your responsibility that no plant species is eradicated and is then subsequently lost for the generations to come.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE ACCIDENTS IN ALPINE TERRAIN

• 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.

Starting from the village square in Galtür follow the signs to the sports- & culture centre and then ascent towards the Predigberg through the forest. After 1 ½ hours the landscape changes into a more alpine surrounding and you will reach the „Bödale“ which is a popular spot for paragliders. Here you already have a magnificant view into the valley. After that the trail gets steeper and especially the last part of it requires step security on coarse gravel. This tour to the 2.645 metre high summit offers great views to the surrounding mountains of the Silvretta, the Jamtal and Lareintal. Especially the view to the local mountains Gorfenspitze and Ballunspitze will take your breath away.

From the village square in Galtür, the hike proceeds to the Alpinarium and from there to the hamlet of Winkl. From there proceed through a steep forest section up to Gorfenspitze. At around 2.000 m, above the forest, this route and its exposure is really only suitable for experts. Continue to a ridge beneath the summit. From here it is very steep and in parts there are some sections of easy climbing (difficulty level 1) to get to the start of the via ferrata route. The ascent to the summit should only be tackled with full via ferrata equipment (climbing belt, via ferrata set and helmet).

The cable car takes you to Idalp mountain station to around 2.320 metres altitude. From there the route heads, as outlined in tour I.9, to the Greitspitze (regular visitors‘ cross) at 2.872 m. After this follow the hiking trail to Salaaser Kopf (2.744 m), Zeblasjoch (2.539 m) to Samnaun. Samnaun was for a long time, up until the end of the 2nd world war, a lucrative destination for smugglers from Paznaun. These days the price differences are quite a bit less than they were 30 years ago (Samnaun is a duty-free zone). The aerial cable car in Samnaun, with its double-decked gondola, providing space for 180 people, is the biggest of its kind in the world.
