Winter Hiking
Routes

White, whiter, whitest is everything you will see…

Really big eyes for all winter hikers in the rear Ötztal: the pace is excellent to admire the unspoilt beauty of the Alpine mountains and landscapes. 12 km of cleared, signposted winter walking trails lead through snow-covered stone pine forests, white meadows and along the frozen Gurgler Ache brook. Take an even deeper insight into marvelous backcountry areas on guided snowshoeing adventures.

The loop trail along "Alte Niederthaier Straße" (old federal road of Niederthai) is much more demanding than it seems to be at first glance. The ascending route leads along Umhausen's high-altitude trail featuring a short but very steep uphill section where also the most avid cycling aficionados push their bike. The return route travels past Höfle: making a sharp right turn you reach Gasthof Stuibenfall renowned for its mouth-watering Tirolean specialties. Before enjoying a speedy downhill adventure on the old federal road you shouldn't miss out on making a short detour (5 minutes) by walking down to the rushing waters of the Stuiben Falls. A truly rewarding experience!
