Snowshoeing & Winter "Almwalking"

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. Individual support and the best tips from locals for your winter holidays in Austria.
