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 almost 6 kilometer loop tour leads from Oetz northwards to Sautens and back again. The asphalt and gravel roads are easy to ride. A cool breeze on the shores of the Alpine brook, fed by glacier water, promises refreshing moments even on hot summer days. In addition, you can follow the shady tree alley along the river.

Anyone who has already experienced the river during the snow melting season in spring can imagine its destructive power. In the past, the rushing mountain river has often flooded and devastated big parts of the valley. Therefore numerous water control structures were built to protect the local residents. Chances are that you can watch kayakers and rafting boats on their wavy adventure.

Tip for swimming fans: nearby Lake Piburger See, a true natural gem, is one of Tirol's warmest swimming lakes with temperatures up to 25 degree Celsius!
