Snowshoe magic in East Tyrol

Sponsored by
Osttirol

During a winter- and snowshoe hike in East Tyrol you dive into an enchanted, almost magical world. Silence, deep snow-covered forests and untouched terrain in an atmosphere of silence and seclusion await you. A National Park ranger will guide you through a lonely snow-covered winter landscape, which is beautifully reflected in the sunlight. Besides the crunching underneath your snowshoes, there is a lot of peace and calmness. This experience becomes even more intense during the full moon tours, where you stomp through the highest national park in Central Europe on a starlit night. You can end your hike with a cosy rest in one of the many rustic mountain huts. Words can not really describe how all this feels in reality. Come and see for yourself the "enchanted winter landscape" of East Tyrol.

Whether on your own, on well-signposted trails or in a guided group with trained national park rangers - snowshoe hiking is an experience in itself. Nevertheless, there are a few planning basics before the tour, which you should definitely observe. Avalanche situation report, weather forecast and planning with sufficient room for manoeuvre should be taken into account in any case. If you need help with planning before the tour, the local tourist offices and the National Park Rangers will be happy to help you. You can rent the equipment in the numerous sports shops.
