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.

At the former quarry of the 50ies, of which there is only little left, a climbing area for beginners has emerged. There are only few routes, but it is a perfect area for getting used to rock climbing.

Because of its good location and the pleasant ambiance the climbing garden is ideal for climbing from springtime to late fall.
