Step onto the natural stage at the Lake Schwarzwasser and Lake Pardatschersee to take your place in the Forest and Lakeside Adventure Trail. Installations of stone, wood and rope, imitating natural forms, test your ambition and creativity over and again.
A bouldering wall, two creatively shaped climbing towers, the reed skimming as well as a slackline parcours and many more highlights are promising a whole lot of action.
Between all this physical activity and the information stations with all manner of surprising facts about the flora and fauna around the mountain lakes, you will also find oases in which to relax.
The quiet fishing spots at Schwarzwassersee and the cosy barbecue areas at Pardatschersee offer enough space to recharge your batteries or to relax at the end of a day of games.
An exceptionally varied overall experience full of fun and action for the whole family is thus guaranteed.
Walk of Lyrics
The Ischgl - Idalp adventure trail at 2,320 metres above sea level offers fun, variety and excitement for hikers of all ages. The main characters? Two suspension bridges, the Walk of Lyrics, the Adventure Stage and a hike through three alpine vegetation zones. Are you ready for the extra portion of hiking adventure in Ischgl?
At the beginning of the trail you hike mostly over wooded slopes. Special highlight: The crossing of the deep Kitzloch gorge, over which one of the suspension bridges is also stretched! After that, the two suspension bridges already come into play: out of the valley over the Kitzloch Bridge with a span of 120 metres and in the valley over the Bärenfalle with a span of 110 metres.
What awaits those who cross the bridges? Fantastic views over deep gorges and a small portion of thrills. After all, it's not every day that you walk across bridges with flooring made of gratings and ropes as railings, is it?
Walk of Lyrics
A new attraction has been added to the adventure trail and now includes some world stars of the music industry along with a fascinating landscape.
The legendary concerts which take place on the Idalp stage emphasise Ischgl’s entertainment concept. International music stars can now be seen here in summer too as songs by Rihanna, Udo Jürgens and Sting are played in a range of different settings.
Away from the stage, in a forest by a wild brook, the songs by the stars are presented in a new and unique way. The focus is on the poetry of the songs which, at times, are presented gently in text format to highlight the lyricism of the words. A pictorial interpretation of the song text then follows as an acoustic sound experience.
The suspension bridges
'Desires are the most considerable bridge builders and the most audacious drivers'
Elfriede Hablé, Austrian aphorist and musician
Kitzloch and Bärenfalle are over 100 metres in length and an unbelievable 70 metres above Fimbabach. The saying is about two suspension bridges, built exclusively for pedestrians, which have to be negotiated on the new Tyrolean adventure hiking trail from Ischgl to the Idalp located at 2320m.
For a year now these 100 metre long spellbinding bridges have spanned the ravines. They are braced from below and from the side by wind cables. Their base coverings are made from gratings, the railings are made from cables and mesh grids are stretched in between.
Hiking through three Alpine vegetation zones
The ‘Kalvarienberg’ is the start for this rewarding 7.5 km hiking route. The hiking trail, which lasts for around 2 hours, takes you through three Alpine vegetation zones.
In the lower section the majority is over forested slopes; crossing the deep Kitzloch ravine is particularly impressive.
Afterwards you have to exhibit a head for heights twice, then you proceed to the 70 metre high suspension bridge above Fimbabach. Initially across the Kitzjoch bridge heading out of the valley which spans 120 metres; then into the valley via the Bärenfalle which span 110 metres.
You pass two additional little streamlets, located to the front of the intermediate station via a small wooden bridge. Obviously you’ll need some refreshments in the mountain restaurant Alpenhaus, Videralp or a barbecue at Lake Vidersee after exhibiting so much courage and all that fresh air.
