Snowshoe hiking & winter walking

Step by step towards a holistic experience

The hiking paradise of Sölden also has a marvelous winter season: 49.5 km of cleared, signposted winter hiking trails take walkers straight through snow-covered forests, white meadows and along Ötztaler Ache mountain brook. Adventure-seeking vacationers grab their snowshoes and listen to the crunching snow under their feet while lively Sölden disappears in the background. Trudging  through the untouched white either on your own or accompanied by a local guide you will take new insights on the way to rustic mountain huts.

Surrounded by meadows and meadows is the hiking village at the beginning of the valley of the river, which extends from here up to glaciated three-brooks. The range of winter hiking tours for children, skiers or hikers is great. A popular destination for hiking and snowshoeing is the family-friendly Amberger Hütte (2.135 m), which is also the starting point of many ski tours. From the south-facing sunny terrace of the massive natural stone building from the year 1888 one looks at the glistening Sulztalferner, which flanking mighty peaks such as Schrankgel or Wildeleck. The access to the Amberger hut is uniformly ascending along a wide road along the Fischbach to the hut. Halfway along the path is a culinary extra tip: the Suzltalalm on the same, best-prepared path back to Gries. Large car park at the end of Gries.
