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.

Pirchkogel offers superb panorama views. The route that starts in Kühtai is very scenic and worth doing. The climb up the ski run is rather steep, but the effort is quickly forgotten once you reach Gossenkölle Lake. The biospherepark of the same name was recognized by UNESCO in 1977, and still is a site of research activities. The last stretch to the peak is not as steep and strenuous. From the top of Pirchkogel you enjoyjaw-dropping views of the surrounding peaks. The hike down through Feldringer Böden is also very scenic. A stop at Feldring Alm is highly recommended!
