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.
There are two good reasons to take the heavy ascent to the Festkogl: the overwhelming panorama of the summit and the serpentine-rich trail back into the valley.
From Obergurgl you follow the ascent to the Schönwies- and Langtalereck hut. At an altitude of 2075 meters, the further path branches off to the left to the Festkogl. During the next 60 minutes, there is hardly a breather on the equally steep gravel road. Nevertheless, well-trained bikers will have an eye for the ever-increasing imposing panorama. From the mountain station of the cable car it is necessary to mobilize the forces for the last upturn. A few hundred heights, then it is done. At the end of the path, at 2680 meters, the view of the three thousand-meter-high mountains for the troubles compensates. A last check of the brakes - And off you go on the fast descent.
Take enough liquid with you on the tour, the restaurant at the end of the route is closed in summer.
