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.

Starting from Umhausen you pass by the hamlet Neudorf. After crossing the Ötztaler Ache you continue left-hand in the direction to Köfels. At the fork-off to Köfels you have to change to the Ötztal federal road until you reach the hamlet of Au, Längenfeld*. This part of the route through Längenfeld can be found on the western side of the valley, close to the Ötztal Alps' rock faces. It has almost no change in altitude and runs through small hamlets on asphalt and gravel trails until you reach Längenfeld.

 

*In august 2018 it will be possible to cross this passage without changing to the Ötztal federal road. Two cycle path bridges and another underpass will be available.

Author’s recommendation
