The right accommodation is provided as well: In Gurgl you will find either small, family-run guest houses, holiday apartments or large, luxurious hotels.

Look beyond the edge of the slope

After an eventful day on the slopes, you can stop off at a quaint Alpine inn or ski hut and warm yourself up with hot tea by the fireplace. The awesome natural landscape can of course also be explored on a scenic (snowshoe) hike through the snow-covered forests around Gurgl. For example, on a walking tour across the mythical, centuries-old stone pine forest to Schönwieshütte in Rotmoostal side valley, where you can stop off. This is a perfect way how to spend your ski holidays in Tirol, too!
