If you love peace and tranquility and the solitude of nature on your winter holiday, then snowshoe hiking is the right choice: a combination of gentle fitness and intensive nature experience!
Those who have already worn featherlight snowshoes will know their benefits. They allow you to hike through deep snow to the summits, usually only reached by backcountry ski hikers. Once you get to the top you are rewarded with a magnificent panorama.
Guided snow shoe tours are organised throughout the winter in the Gastein valley; trudging tuphill through the glittering snow on sunny slopes. Here the only other footsteps you will discover are those of the woodland animals.
