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.

This easy trail follows the pastures to Rofenhöfe. Along the way you will come across several herds of Haflinger horses that spend the summer in the mountains. The summit cross that used to be standing on Wildspitze, Tirol’s highest peak, was put up on this trail and makes for a great photo. The highlight and also end of this hike is the suspension bridge across Rofen Ache. The walk across the bridge is amazing and you get some great views! To return, follow the same way back.
