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.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Panorama Trail is also perfectly suitable for e-bikers as it features only some 20% of gravel surface. Most sections travel along asphalt routes. It is known as an easy and quite short trail with almost no change in altitude.

You start at Bikeschule Ötztal in Sölden, pedaling towards the hamlet of Windau. At the height of Gaislachkogl mountain gondola you reach the main road which takes you to the recycling plant.

Behind the helicopter port you turn into a gravel trail which takes you back to the panoramic Glacier Road and down to the hamlet of Innerwald. From here you return to the starting point on a descending trail.
