Away from the slopes, well-prepared winter hiking trails take you through the wonderful landscape of the Upper Zillertal. Set your own pace and enjoy views of the majestic mountains and the glistening snow in sunshine. Hike through snow-covered forests, over alpine pastures and slopes. Popular hikes in winter lead to the Brindling-Alm, Rastkogel Hütte or to Schiestl's Sunnalm. We can give you some tips about the best routes; and, for less experienced ski tourers, provide recommendations about guided mountain tours with a professional guide and professional equipment.

Experience the silence of nature, breathe in the clear mountain air and simply take in the beauty of the landscape - that's snowshoe hiking in Zillertal. It doesn't always have to be the hustle and bustle of the slopes: leisurely snowshoe hikes require little previous knowledge or experience. You can take part in guided tours of varying levels of difficulty, or explore the winter landscape on your own. Either way, it is pure romance in the snow!
