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.

Walking uphill along the broad forest trail you pass countless bends and sharp turns over some 13 kilometers. 1 km before you reach Polltalalm you turn left towards Halhkogelhaus. Continue on the narrow footpath above the timber line to Hahlkogelhaus. The last part is very wet and muddy (marshland).
