In a winter wonderland
Experience a peaceful winter paradise on a walk through magical landscapes. Winter hiking is a leisurely pastime: enjoyed on cleared or prepared paths and without any steep inclines. Sturdy footwear and warm clothes are the only equipment you need. The area around Innsbruck is home to many winter hiking routes that take you through romantic winter landscapes, snowy forests and snowy mountain peaks. The paths are also suitable for families with children and offer a nice contrast to skiing. Plus: you can enjoy a good dose of winter sun if Mother Nature is on your side.
Don't confuse winter hiking with snowshoeing. Snowshoeing involves strapping fin-like snowshoes to your feet and following routes that lead through untouched terrain. Winter hiking is a more leisurely option where no special equipment is required but you stay on the groomed winter paths.
Our tip: combine your winter hike with a stop at one of the region's guesthouses or local producers. The Tyrolean dishes and local products are sure to warm you up and replenish your energy levels.
