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.

Start and finish of this route: Freizeit Arena. Follow the federal road towards the upper valley, turn right at the BP gas station after approx. 1 km. The climbing road takes you through the hamlets of Außerwald and Innerwald to the Glacier Road. Continue on the Glacier Road for about 4-5 km, in direction Hochsölden. Then you turn right into the gravel path leading up to the mountain inns of Gampe Thaya and Gampe Alm. Here you conquer the last steep forest section before you get to the mountain huts. Up there a short transfer route leads past Stabele Alm and the access point of Ohn Line (6007) which you follow for a bit, enjoying wavy rollers, turns and a couple of wooden elements. Through the forest you reach the Glacier Road again (junction), from there you return to the village center easily.
