Discover the Hochkonig holiday region with active wintry outdoor sports even when you are away from the pistes
During snowshoeing tours or with an ‘almwalking’ tour the cold season will reveal its most beautiful side.
Snowshoe walking is one of the oldest ways to move through snow and ice. Thousands of years ago humans already walked through the snow on snowshoes - although on rather more primitive versions of today’s modern equipment - to reach chalets and villages. Today, snowshoeing or snowshoe hiking has become a very popular sports trend in Austria and, alongside Nordic cruising and cross country skiing, is a fixture on the winter programme of the AlpenParks Resorts.
The hosts of AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Maria Alm organise snowshoeing tours several times a week. Conquer the winter wonderland of Maria Alm in a more relaxed and peaceful way: with snowshoes you will almost fly across the snow and can leave large distances behind you without tiring too much. With snowshoes, you will also reach places that normal walkers cannot – so off you go snowshoeing to the local insider spots of Maria Alm.
Winter ‘Almwalking’: walking from one Alpine chalet to the next
Winter ‘almwalking’ means: walking from one alpine chalet to the next. But instead of walking on hiking paths and meadows, you walk on snow. Wrapped up warmly in functional clothing you will soak up the fresh wintry air and enjoy some soft cardio exercise while walking. And once you have reached your next stop you can look forward to a hot tea in the rustic Alpine chalets scattered throughout the Hochkonig holiday region.
With a certified winter walking guide an ‘almwalking’ tour or snowshoeing tour is almost twice the fun! Spending your next winter holidays in Austria’s Maria Alm will provide the proof. Look forward to conquering a deeply snow-covered Hochkonig holiday region in Austria on snowshoes.
