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 Astlehn Climbing Garden ranks among Tirol's most traditional and impressing rock climbing areas. Already since the early 80ies, this place is deeply rooted in the history of climbing. The enormously overhanging rock face makes a truly outstanding spot for very skilled and athletic climbers only. Avid sportsmen should not miss this milestone known as one of the birthplaces of climbing in Tirol.
