The Hohe Tauern National Park is home to any number of beautiful trails which are waiting for you to explore them.

Idyllic snowshoe walks in the Hohe Tauern National Park

As soon as winter descends on the country and the first snowfalls transform the landscape into a magical white outdoor stage, it is possible to explore the region on snowshoes. Snowshoe walks offer bon-vivants a unique opportunity to enjoy harmony with nature. Secluded and idyllic places away from the pistes and all the noise and action can also be discovered in this way. Nestling between the beautiful Kitzbühel Alps and the Hohe Tauern National Park and in the foothills of the Wildkogel, the Hotel Steiger is your ideal starting point for extended snowshoe walks.

Snowshoe walks – a leisurely way to get around for everyone

NEW: Discover a new hiking trail connecting the mountain stations of the Smaragdbahn, the Wildkogelbahn and the Gensbichlalmbahn (with or without a guide).

Walk through the deep snow of the landscape, enjoy the impressive views and do something positive for your fitness: snowshoe walking offers all of this. For all of those who can't or don't want to go skiing and snowboarding, snowshoe walks are the alternative winter sport. This enjoyable wintertime pursuit is ideal for beginners because no previous experience is necessary. Snowshoe walking is equally suitable for adults and children. The difficulty levels can be individually chosen for each route – from absolute beginner through to seasoned sports enthusiast.

The health benefits of snowshoe walks:

  • Strengthens the cardiovascular system
  • Helps to burn fat
  • Improves stamina & fitness
  • Benefits the immune system
  • Reduces stress
  • Ideal sport for people suffering from circulatory problems
