Winter hiking in Tyrol
Hiking in Tyrol has been a year-round activity for some time now, the lure of the winter landscape being a very special one. At this time of year, the thick blanket of snow dampens down any noise and nature reveals its most beautiful side.
Cleared hiking trails cross the region's fields and meadows, go past the lake shore and cut through the forest. Even along the glistening wintertime lake shore, the trails meander. Those who love silence can hike through the region's unspoiled nature with snow shoes. Step by step you'll come closer to your destination – whether that be a nice little rest in a cosy spot or your own inner peace.
Step by step through paradise
The snow crunches under your feet, the fresh air tickles your nose. Or is it the winter sunshine? The hiking trails all around Lake Achen, into the unspoiled natural beauty of the Karwendel valleys, are clear in winter too, inviting walkers to explore the region by way of the total of 150 kilometres of trails. In both summer and winter, our weekly fitness programme includes accompanied Outdoor activities.
Trappers on the move
From the "Erfurter Hütte" (Erfurt Hut), the mountain station of the Rofanseilbahn cable car, this route passes by some bizarre rock formations and snow-covered plateaus, offering fantastic views stretching as far as the Kaisergebirge Mountains, including the Rofanspitze peak. An easy walk that takes around two hours.
Significantly more challenging is the two to four hour hike from the romantic village of Steinberg to the Köglalm pasture.However, the fantastic view of the Karwendel and Lake Achen glistening far below more than makes up for all the effort.
