Snow-shoe-hikes in
the Gastein Mountains

Snow-shoe-hiking at Salzburger Land

Discover Salzburg province on snow shoes during your holiday

Away from the ski pistes you can discover a completely different side to Gastein Valley – hike on snow-shoes through the snow-covered mountainscape of Gastein. Only chamois or hares have been there before you, leaving behind their tracks in the freshly fallen snow. The forest exudes calm. You can hear the rhythm of your breathing and feel your heart beat. There, an eagle circles high above.

Experience the natural surroundings of the Austrian Alps in winter up-close and intensely. You won’t be taking any risks doing this, since the snow-shoe hiking trails only take you through terrain which is safe. Bad Hofgastein Tourist Association offers an impressive natural history winter hike on snow-shoes once a week. Maybe this will mean you get involved in a new sport which is in tune with nature!

Hiking on snow-shoes in the wintry Gastein mountainscape enables you to experience lots of sights which you haven’t seen yet but it also makes you very tired! At the end of your snow-shoe hike, relax and recover in one of the Gastein thermal springs and treat yourself to a beneficial massage. A wonderful evening meal in one of Gastein’s restaurants and inns is a lovely way to round off your day.

Your 4-star apartment in AlpenParks Residence Bad Hofgastein is only a stone’s throw from the restaurants and inns in the town’s pedestrian zone. Enjoy a stroll through Bad Hofgastein in the evening and look forward to another wonderful day in the centre for winter sports, Gastein Valley.
