Guided hikes

Explore nature with BERGaktiv 

The tourism office and its partner BERGaktiv offer you a great hiking programme in probably one of Austria's most beautiful hiking regions stretching over the Große Walsertal biosphere reserve, the Bregenz Forest and Damüls Faschina in the middle of it all.

The expertise and long experience of the local hiking guides working at BERGaktiv will guide you safely and with a lot of fun through the nature adventure that is Damüls.

Enjoy a guided tour

12 experienced hiking guides, all born and raised in the UNESCO Große Walsertal biosphere reserve, have created the BERGaktiv collective in order to show you their beloved homeland – the Damüls mountains – from up close and from its most beautiful side during the summer.

The BERGaktiv guides will lead you with enthusiasm, experience and knowledge to 40 peaks, over 230 sign-posted hiking trails, to 47 hosted alpine huts and to a great range of scenic beauties and cultural monuments.
