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.

A huge lawn in the foothills and a great choice of different routes make the Tumpen Climbing Garden a beginner-friendly climbing area in Tirol. A new section was opened on the right side of the rock face, which is very well secured and therefore ideal for newcomers. The Engelswand rock face really has it all: corner lines, wonderful overhangs, challenging grooves and ledges.
