The wide landscape of the Olympic area of Seefeld in Tyrol, Austria, offers the best conditions for dreamlike snow shoe hikes in a pristine winter landscape
The pure natural surroundings make it easy to switch off and unwind, to simply breathe in the fresh, clear air and soak up the magical scenery –and perhaps stop for a refreshment at one of the cosy, rustic little mountain huts. And, last but not least, the Seefeld high plateau also offers a little paradise for snowshoe devotees – complete with a breathtaking vista.
Whether you are going on your own, on the well-signposted routes or in a guided group – snow shoe hiking is an experience of its own. You can rent the equipment in any of the numerous sports shops in town.
