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.

From Längenfelder district Huben a slightly ascending path leads to the southernmost point of Längenfeld - Aschbach and on to Sölden. The starting point is the fire station in Huben. After crossing the bridge, follow the path on the right and change the street with the help of the underpass. For a short distance the path runs parallel to the road until it leads into the forest. Shortly before Aschbach at the hamlet Bruggen turn the road and river side is changed. Now you climb the dense forest in evenly inclined bends up to a small bridge that spans the main street. The path continues downhill past the dog kennel until the bridge which leads over the Ötztaler Acher. After passing this, follow the road to the right. After a few minutes, the first houses of Sölden come into view.
