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.

On this hike, follow the Ötztaler Ache at the beginning in the direction of flow and later upstream. The starting point can vary depending on your mood. However, we start in Längenfeld at the campsite. In front of the campsite, on the right, there is a path between a skating rink and a small river to a bridge. After crossing you stay on this path until you get to the road to Oberried. Now you cross this road and walk along the Ache to the hamlet of Au. Here the bridge is crossed again and on the other side of the river all the way back to Längenfeld. Finally, you pass a small pedestrian bridge.On the entire route you can enjoy the tranquility and a magnificent view of the snow-covered mountains.
