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.

Across Alpine meadows and a scenic suspension bridge you walk along the trail from Vent to Rofen. Here you continue towards the goods lift of Vernagthütte and further on across picture-book Rofner Schlucht gorge. The permanently ascending trail is very steep and demanding at the end, before you finally reach Hochjoch Hospiz.

From the hut you follow the steep footpath to the iron bridge over Hintereisbach brook. A switch-backing trail takes you up to the glacier fields of Hochjochferner and Schöne Aussicht mountain refuge which is located above the glacier.
