The Lechweg is a European long-distance hiking trail that runs 125 kilometres through the Alps. The trail starts at the picturesque Formarin Lake, leads past the Ibex monument in Zug and via the Lechuferweg back to Lech. The second stage starts directly in the village centre of Lech. Passing the Bodenalpe, you finally cross the Lech Gorge and arrive in the centre of Warth. This stage can also be walked in the opposite direction. A great hiking experience for all water lovers.
Biking enthusiasts, whether beginner or experienced, will find the perfect route. While on the Spuller Lake circuit, discover the countryside on a moderate mountain-bike route with fascinating views. There is not so much time to enjoy the scenery on the Burgwald Trail. The trail is the first official free-ride and enduro route in Vorarlberg and promises pure adventure.
The best of both worlds is available on the “bike & hike” tours in the region, for example the Saladinaspitze, to the Roggelskopf or around the Formaletsch. A bike tour with an e-bike is even more leisurely. Two e-bikes are available for hire in the Hotel Hubertus.
