Routes

You are spoilt for choice: two routes both lead to the same finish point

Light route:
The starting point is the Silvrettaplatz square by the Silvretta Seilbahn AG cable car in Ischgl – at the large start arch. From here, the route runs through the village towards the Hotel Kristall via the national road B188 and past the hamlet of Paznaun to the recycling centre.
The underpass on the left-hand side takes you on the cycle path towards the wildlife park and up to beautiful Larain. A forest trail runs past a hidden pond to Tschaffein. From here, it’s back to Mathon and then along an uphill section towards the Friedrichshafner Hütte lodge. After the second bend, a single trail leads over a terrain of roots (above Mathon) back to Ischgl and the start/finish arch.

Medium route:
For the ambitious mountain bikers among you, it all begins with the end of the Light route. On your way back from Mathon to Ischgl, do not continue straight back to the start/finish arch and instead turn off right up to the Idalp. This route is certain to make your thighs burn but you only have to push through a little further until you reach the Velillscharte. From here, flow trails lead down to the Prennerhang slope and back to the Silvrettaplatz square.

The app is available from 8th July!

Paznaun Challenge: the app download is available on App Store for iOS and on Google Play Store for Android from 8th July!
