Snowshoe Hiking in Ötztal

Surefooted exploration of mountains and valleys

What is the best way to describe snowshoeing? Walking on clouds comes close, the softness of snow crystals in the freshly fallen snow reminds of childhood memories. It's difficult not to be enchanted by this type of gentle winter sports. Huge advantage: very little equipment, a lot of nature. In Ötztal there are also guided tours to the area's most scenic spots.

Family-friendly sport

For those who want to enjoy a winter holiday at a more leisurely pace or need a break from skiing, this activity is really perfect. Also for children who have already made shorter hikes. The special thing about it: the scenic routes lead across country through deep snow without sinking into snow at each step. And there is no age limit. In addition to the sporty activity there is one thing that counts even more: peace and quiet in the unspoilt outdoors.


Little equipment for a lot of winter

Another great advantage of snowshoeing: the equipment you need - except for the snowshoes - is already at home:

Mountain boots, warm winter clothing, hiking or ski poles.

The snowshoes are available for rent at the sports shops offering ski rental.
