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.

LETTN LINE

[lɛtn̩]

The word "Lettn" means morass, mud, wet, humid.

It's a dialect word used all over the Province of Tirol - and even in other German speaking regions.

Author’s recommendation

Lettn Line makes the perfect final stage of Leiterberg Trail (672).
