Walking with a guide in winter

Guided winter walks

Our certified winter walking guide accompanies guests through the snowy landscape.

Six weekly guided walks are offered in the winter season. Our guides Walter Naschberger and Rainer Schoner takes nature lovers through the snowy Wildschönau Valley.

We begin with an easy tour for novice snowshoe trekkers beginning in Oberau - meeting point is the Alpenhotel Wildschönau next to the Tourist Office. We cross the deep snowfields passed ancient farmhouses to Zauberwinkl.

If the snow in the valley starts to melt, we graduate to the top of the Markbachjoch Mountain. Far away from the ski pistes we find perfect peace and quiet.

Every Friday we strap on our walking boots and climb to the Schrofen Mountain Hut from Niederau village centre.

A new addition to our program is the evening snowshoe walk with expert Rainer Schoner. We provide the headlamps so that you can enjoy this new experience to the full.

The winter walking program are free with the WildschönauCard.

The destination are subject to changes depending on the weather and snow conditions.
