Snowshoeing on the Arlberg

Snowshoeing in Warth-Schröcken: a journey through the magic of winter

explore the region
Through the deep snow to unique views

The special topography of Warth-Schröcken seems tailor-made for hikes on snowshoes. With special shoes and ski sticks to hand, you can walk beyond beaten paths, through deep snow and tricky terrain, accompanied by many challenges. Magical panoramas await as your glorious reward when you reach spots that would normally remain hidden away when going snowshoeing on the Arlberg. AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Arlberg is your base camp for winter adventures.

Guided tours with experienced guides

For many people, snowshoes are completely new and likely not something you carry in your luggage. The ski and winter sport schools and sporting goods stores in Warth and Schröcken can help out, providing rental options for the full equipment from shoe to stick, helpful instructions included. On top of that, several providers specialise in snowshoe tours.

After a brief introduction to the correct handling – with added safety tips – you and an experienced guide can head for the deep snow. Tour guides can also assist more experienced snowshoe hikers in discovering hidden treasures and tours with particularly grand views.

Suggested tours around the AlpenParks resort

Many of the winter hikes and ski tours around AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Arlberg can also be tackled on snowshoes. Here are two tours for more experienced snowshoe hikers in the surrounding villages that provide fascinating experiences:

  • Gerachsattel: This not overly difficult, very long 13.2 km hike is hidden away in the back end of the Kleinwalsertal. Snowshoes are definitely needed after the Schwarzwasserhütte to master the non-prepared terrain. Impressive views await at about 1,750 m.
  • Diedamskopf: This short yet spectacular tour begins at the Diedamskopf mountain station. Follow the signposted path parallel to the Oberfelle ski slope for 4.1km. Look out for other winter athletes at the Kreuzle ski path before quickly heading to the next sun terrace.
