Enjoying the peacefulness of Gastein Valley on snowshoes

Looking for a serene alternative to fast skiing or snowboarding? The finest and most original way of exploring the alpine world is still on snowshoes.

Our ancestors already used snowshoes to reach remote locations in the wintry terrain. A snowshoe has a larger treading surface than regular shoes. This means you only sink into the snow just a little, allowing you to cover long distances with less effort.

"Decelerating" is a term used not only in the spa area of your hotel, but also in winter sports. The best way to escape the speed freaks on the slopes is snowshoeing in Bad Hofgastein. Tread through the forest on quiet soles. When reading the tracks of our local wildlife, our knowledgeable guides will tell you more about the local flora and fauna.
