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 Camping Ötztal is the starting point for this circular walk. At the beginning you hike a short distance along the Ötztaler Ache past the thermal bath "Aqua Dome". At the first junction keep left until you reach the access road of the bath. On the right side, a small chapel comes into view. Directly past this, the winter hiking trail leads past the hamlet of Astelehn to Runhof. Here the path leads right past the few houses to the bridge which is crossed. Follow the signs to Gottsgut, past the fun park (only open in summer), continue straight ahead to the football pitch in Huben. Now you leave the winter hiking trail for a short distance and walk along the road through a small settlement to the fire station. Here the road is crossed and you follow the Ötztaler Ache valley out to Runhof. There the bridge is crossed and on the other side of the river one goes back to Längenfeld.
