Winter walking & snowshoe
hiking in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

Winter Hiking

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 Längenfelder district Huben a slightly ascending path leads to the southernmost point of Längenfeld - Aschbach and on to Sölden. The starting point is the fire station in Huben. After crossing the bridge, follow the path on the right and change the street with the help of the underpass. For a short distance the path runs parallel to the road until it leads into the forest. Shortly before Aschbach at the hamlet Bruggen turn the road and river side is changed. Now you climb the dense forest in evenly inclined bends up to a small bridge that spans the main street. The path continues downhill past the dog kennel until the bridge which leads over the Ötztaler Acher. After passing this, follow the road to the right. After a few minutes, the first houses of Sölden come into view.
