Winter walking & snowshoe
hiking in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

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.

Otherwise, the water splashes calmly. This can be enjoyed to the full in this round. The pedestrian bridge which spans the Ötztaler Ache near the campsite is the starting point. Immediately follow the river up to Astlehn. Through the trees one always gets a glimpse of the Ötztal mountains as well as of the village. Once in Astlehn, another bridge is crossed. The way back is on the opposite side of the river. From far away the thermal bath Aqua Dome is visible which almost reaches the starting point.
