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.

The hike starts in Niederthai at the car park "Sennhof". From there, turn right over the wooden bridge in the direction of Höfle and after about 200 meters turn right into the Bergmahderweg. You hike along the broad forest path - Bergmahderweg. The sunny spot near the Hubertuskapelle invites you to linger. The last part leads into a narrow descending hiking trail which continues over the bridge directly to the Larstigalm. Back you hike on the left side on Grastalweg, past the Grastalfeld on the wide forest road through a fairytale larch- and spruce forest. The Hotel Falknerhof  is reached via a slightly downhill terrain. There continue to the right and follow the asphalt road back to the car park. Alternatively, you can also turn off at the curve, before going down to the Hotel Falknerhof. A narrow, somewhat steeper trail (shortcut) leads to the starting point, the car park.
