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.

Starting point: Camping Ötztal.

The trail runs along a short piece of woodland over fields to Oberrieder Straße, which is crossed. Next, the trail follows the right side of the Ache along an idyllic birch forest to the hamlet village Espan. Shortly before the turn in Winklen / Au, a small climb to the bridge has to be mastered. Now the trail of the Ötztaler Ache travels back to Längenfeld - to the south. Almost at the end of the round you reach the Oberrieder loop which leads past the foot of the Pestkapelle back to the Camping Ötztal.
