With huge shoes across fresh snow without sinking in: a special way to immerge into the fairytale-like winter landscape of Tyrol
Snowshoes actually come from the Far North of America: Inuit and the Indigenous peoples of the Americas used these huge shoes to move along in winter in order not to sink into the snow. Today, however, snowshoeing has become a trendy sport: It is a special winter experience and enables you to explore the fairytale winter landscape off the beaten tracks and the crowded ski slopes.
There are many wonderful destinations (in the picture the Oetztal valley), such as the Defereggen Valley and the Zedlach Paradise in East Tyrol, or the snowshoe tour from Seefeld on Mt. Brunschkopf, from Kössen to Lake Taubensee, from Navis via the Stöckl Mountain Hut to Mt. Gallenschrofen, along the Ursprung Hoch-Imst Trail, from Maurach on Lake Achensee to the 2,258 m high Rofanspitze peak, or a guided tour through the Oetztal Nature Park.
