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.

Von der Mittelstation der Gaislachkoglbahn führt ein breiter Schotterweg hinauf über die Skipiste zum Gaislachkogl. Dort wo die Almwiesen blühen, trifft man auf heimische Weidetiere wie Schafe, Kühe und Pferde. Entlang der idyllischen Berghänge, die im Winter als Skipiste kaum wiederzuerkennen sind, führt der Weg hinauf und über das Wasserkar zum Gaislachkogl. Diese schöne, mittelschwierige Wanderung bietet ein authentisches Bergerlebnis mit einer grandiosen Aussicht entlang der Strecke
