Venturing into the wilderness, experiencing the “big five” from up close, taking pictures of wild animals – that’s what safaris make you think of? Well, in Galtür things are a bit different – with the local safaris taking you through the Silvretta mountain world on skis. Experience nature from up close during this very special adventure and go on a ski safari – a combination of skiing, snowcats, cable cars and buses. Embark on this one-of-a-kind adventure and discover the most beautiful spots of Galtür!
The ski safari in a nutshell
As soon as you have strapped on your skis, a snowcat pulls you up to Zeinisjoch and towards Kops reservoir at 1,800 metres above sea level. A varied descent takes you through a forest and up to Partenen in Vorarlberg’s Montafon region.
From there, take the Vermuntbahn cable car up to 1,739 metres above sea level to experience one of the safari’s highlights, the tunnel taxi taking you through an impressive mountain shaft up to Bielerhöhe.
Once you have reached the summit, it’s time to savour the breathtaking views of the three-thousand-metre summits of the Silvretta range before heading down through the Vermunt valley and back to Galtür.
Good to know: All you need to join a ski safari in Galtür is a bit of stamina and a good stem and parallel turn technique!
