There are three versions of the Smuggler Circuit: gold, silver & bronze. All three ski safaris start in Austria and lead over the border into Switzerland before returning to Austrian soil – where after a long day out in the fresh air you can relax in the spa area of the ****S Hotel Solaria.
Over the course of history the Paznaun region on the border with Switzerland has been an area with much smuggling activity. Some of the most popular smuggled goods in centuries past included butter, cheese and furs, which would be transported from Austria into the neighbouring region of Samnaun in Switzerland. On the way back the smugglers would bring coffee, tobacco, rice, flour and spices.
Today skiers and snowboarders can follow in the footsteps of those smugglers by taking on one of the threee Smuggler Circuits through the Ischgl-Samnaun ski area.
