The Ziller Valley

The Ziller Valley is surrounded by numerous three-thousand metre peaks offering a unique panorama. It is the world’s largest skiing valley and perfect for skiers of all abilities. Mayrhofen and the Hintertux are perhaps the best known ski resorts in the valley, but the Zillertal has so much more to offer. After extensive work in the 1990s, the Ziller Valley now consists of 7 connected valleys making up a huge ski area with a combined total of 390 miles of downhill slopes.

The Village of Fügen

The charming village of Fügen, located at 2,054 m and approximately 25 miles from Tyrol’s capital Innsbruck, is an ideal base for a family ski holiday. The bottom of the Spieljochbahn cable car is located in the centre of the village and takes skiers and snowboarders to the top of the Spieljoch mountain in just a matter of minutes. Even advanced skiers will enjoy the run down to Fügen – at 7 km the longest valley descent with snowmaking facilities in the Ziller Valley. A shuttle bus service also connects the resort of Fügen with the nearby much larger Hochfügen-Hochzillertal ski region. Fügen has many shops, cafés and restaurants with authentic Tyrolean and European cuisine, as well as rustic ski lodges and après-ski bars. Ski school registration and ski hire are right next to our hotel.

For February half term 2022, we returned to the fabulous Ziller Valley! Below a selection of testimonials from our single parent ski holidays at the same hotel in Fügen. For more up to date testimonials from more recent ski trips, go to https://singleparentsonholiday.co.uk/testimonials/ .

"The February holiday in Fügen was our 4th trip with SPOH and probably the best so far. The hotel was very comfortable with superb facilities, staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and the food good. Sandra and Ian, of course, were excellent hosts. I couldn't have hand picked a better selection of guests; the whole group got on really well, nobody was left out and the children all mucked in as one happy family. The only negative is the bus ride to the main ski area, but the varied pistes and beautiful scenery is well worth the wait."
- Elise, Sebastian (14) & Imogen (11) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2022
"Fantastic people, host (thank you, Daniela), great salad bar, good wines and excellent accommodation. Snow a little slushy towards the end of the week but the people made the holiday.
Another great thing about SPOH holidays, was having childcare support every night to enable parents to relax and share a grown up dinner together. This is the first holiday I have felt Theo and I acted more like a 'normal' family, and less like a strange couple. We both had real fun with our peers which helped make the holiday. Thank you!"

- Gemma & Theo (5) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2016
"Annie’s 1st ski holiday (and our 1st with SPOH) was out of this world! Any reservations I had about taking my 4 year old were gone within the 1st 24 hours. Nothing was too much trouble, the holiday was everything I hoped it would be. Delicious food, great company, fun skiing, life-long memories! Roll on 2016"
- Lindsay & Annie (4) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"Thank you SPOH for another good holiday. Sandra, Daniela and Jacob are naturally wonderful hosts that make sure everybody is happy. I cannot praise them high enough. The skiing wasn’t what was expected for Easter, only because of the unusual weather for this time of year, it snowed a lot, but we did end up with glorious sunshine at the end of the week. Everything is so well organised that the only hassle you get is trying to wake up the kids!"
- Kowkchee & Neve (16) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"Fantastic holiday. Sandra, Danielle and Jacob were great hosts. Can’t wait to go again next year. Ella has been promoting you guys to all her friends who are in single parent families."
- Beany & Ella (10) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"We had the most amazing experience in Zillertal, and as first-time skiiers we were well looked after. The hotel and staff were definitely 4-star (at least)! Would recommend to everyone."
- Louise & Oliver (6) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2016
"This was the first time I’d been away on an organised trip with my 6 year-old. We had a fantastic time and I can now see the advantages of someone else doing all the organising! It was a great mix of skiing during the day but enough time to relax and enjoy the facilities in the afternoons and evenings. Sandra and Daniela were fabulous hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the trip. Miriam looked after the little ones in the evenings and she was a very caring and patient childminder. Everyone was really friendly and we felt at home in the group straight away. Would I do another holiday? Can’t wait!"
- Maria & Nelisha - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
"A massive thank you to Sandra and Daniela for another enjoyable ski holiday with SPOH. An overall great value for money holiday that was stress free! We shall see you again soon."
- Kowkchee & Neve (14) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
"A big thank you to Sandra and Daniela for organising such an excellent holiday and making sure everything went smoothly. We all had a fantastic week, both on and off the slopes and the girls now want to go skiing every year. Hope to see you again soon!"
- Jo, Emma (9) & Katie (7) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
"Great people, wonderful locations, good food… happy children."
