Snow shoe walking in Wildschönau Tirol

Snow shoeing is not only possible on the cleared walking paths but also cross country through the snow.

If you like hiking in the summer, then you must try snow shoe walking in the winter. It is easy to learn and great fun to explore the wilderness  through the crunching snowfields with a group if like-minded adventurers.

Take the Bummelbahn to idyllic Thierbach or the high Schönangeralm for a completely different view of the Wildschönau.

Guides snow show walks

Guided winter walks or snow shoe walks are offered five times weekly. Our walking guides Walter Naschberger, Sonja Seisl and Rainer Schoner lead nature lovers through the pretty winter scenery.

An easy tour starts at the Alpenhotel Wildschönau near the Tourist Office in Oberau. Over deep snow fields and past beautiful old farmhouses the route takes you to Zauberwinkel.

And if the snow in the valley isn’t sufficient for a snow shoe walk, we relocate to the Markbachjoch mountain at 1500 metres where the snow is deep until the end of the season.

All of the walks are included in the Wildschönau Card

Walks can vary due to snow and weather conditions. Please see the weekly events program for details.
