Winter holiday for non-skiers

Winter hiking and pleasure

Step by step

Want to swap your ski shoes for snow shoes? On the Schmitten there are countless winter hiking paths through the deeply snow-covered landscape. An elevation of up to 2000 metres rewards climbers of all ages with dreamy views. Three times a week there are guided hikes; things are much easier when you are part of a group. Those of you who get a pit peckish between meals can replenish your energy stores in one of the traditional Alpine inns.

Your body pulsates and is taken to its limits. Irrespective of experience you will be delighted by one circuit that is especially popular - the floodlit night-time slope in Kaprun.
