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.

From the bridge over the river Inn you follow the road to Schlierenzau. After about 900 m you turn into the forest trail on the right. Small parking area next to the "Haiminger Alm" signpost, offering only a limited number of parking lots. Take the forest trail which - very soon (5 min) - becomes a moderately steep footpath. The fairly demanding switchback route winds its way up through Haiming's mudflow area. After about 1 walking hour and 15 minutes you reach Lintighütte (not serviced), walking another 30 minutes you get to the "Kehre" area (1438 m) offering fantastic views of the Alpine scenery. Continue on the steep trail up to the tree line. A more and more level walking route travels through fabulous pasturelands to Haiminger Alm mountain inn.
