It is free of charge Welcome Card free of charge, but registration is required by 4 p.m. the day before at the latest.

You walk through the winter landscape with a view of the Kalkkögel for about an hour. The snow crunches under your shoes. The fresh air clears your head. And the views are a real treat.

Meeting point and preparation

The meeting point for this tour is always Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. at the Freeride Division at the Axamer Lizum. You can reach the start of the tour free of charge by public transport.

Afterwards, you will set off in the direction of Schafalm.

You reach Schafalm after a short ascent and the magnificent panorama invites you to linger. But there's no time to linger for now, because we continue through the forest, where Christine shows you the tracks of the forest animals. After the forest section, we take a break and snap a few nice souvenir photos ☀️

Full of energy, we continue along the forest road for a short distance. This is followed by another section of forest which is particularly notable for the beautiful bearded moss on the trees. Bartmoos stands for particularly good air quality. The fresh air and tranquillity in the forest invite you to relax. The hike then continues along the forest path to the viewpoint.
