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.

Umhausen is conveniently located in the center of the Ötztal valley at 1031 m above sea level. It nestles at the heart of a wide open basin with lush fields and meadows. This easy loop tour combines all nearby highlights, covering a total distance of 20 kilometers and about 500 meters of altitude gain. Therefore it makes also a perfect mountain bike excursion for less experienced bikers.

The first part of the route leads northwards along the Ötztal Mountain Bike Trail which runs through the entire Ötztal. Pedaling along the rushing waters of the Ötztaler Ache river, you get to the vertical Engelswand rock face located between Platzl and Lehn. Here you find one of Tirol's top-notch climbing gardens. A wonderful meadow right next to the rocks invites you to take a rest and to watch the daredevil climbers. Maybe you want to give climbing a try?

At the southern end of the loop tour you should not miss out on visiting the Ötzi Village, an outdoor park documenting life in the Neolithic age. Nearby Stuiben Falls, Tirol's biggest waterfall with a falling height of 150 meters, are worth-seeing as well. Back in Umhausen you are recommended to enjoy a rest in one of the historical inns that feature precious facade paintings.
