Ischgl Holidays

Excellent high alpine walking and FREE use of all cable-cars & lifts

A peaceful Tyrolean oasis in the Paznaun Valley in the stunning Silvretta mountains, Ischgl came under the world’s spotlight in 2002 when Bill Clinton delivered his ‘Message from the Mountains’ speech here. Although well-known for being lively during the ski season, the atmosphere in Ischgl changes completely in the summer months where you can relax in a peaceful, low-key village which hosts a weekly brass band concert and Tyrolean evening. A great summer base for Alpine and Nordic walkers, it has access to extensive rugged trails, marvellous scenery and mighty peaks almost 3,000m high.

In Ischgl you'll have a telephone service - if you want to know more about the area or have any queries give us a call.
