Winter Walking & Snowshoe hiking

Indulging in the white wonder world while winter hiking

An array of cleared paths leads right across snow-covered winter wonderlands and endless fields, along the crystal clear Ötztaler Ache river to Oetz (2 km). Another scenic hiking trail takes nature lovers to the picturesque Piburger See lake and the surrounding nature preserve. Children will have great fun amidst this white paradise by exploring the awesome beauty of nature treasures which are almost untouched by man. Adults can indulge in peace and quiet while forgetting the daily grind.
