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 tour's 500 meters of altitude gain have to be conquered on the permanently climbing ascent route which is not too steep. Starting in Sölden, you follow the Ötztal federal road and turn right before you reach the BP petrol station. The climbing road leads through the hamlets of Außerwald and Innerwald, then further on to the Glacier Road. Before you get to the ski run's overpass, you turn left into the forest trail which takes you through the industrial area to Sölden's recycling plant. From there you continue slightly downhill on the federal road to Zwieselstein.

In Zwieselstein you cross Venter Ache brook and continue on the switch-backing gravel trail. After a short track you turn right into the gravel trail towards Lenzenalm. Although the route doesn't become steeper the ascent is hard work for your muscles – your heart rate will increase! After about 7 kilometers you finally reach quaint Lenzenalm at 1852 m above sea level. The serviced mountain hut boasts two sunny terraces and awesome panoramic views of the Ötztal Alps. Opposite you can make out the winding Timmelsjoch Road, one of the Alps' highest pass roads. Return to Sölden on the ascent route.
