Snowshoeing in the Grossarl Valley
A Gentle Winter Sport
There is hardly any other winter sport in which you are in such perfect harmony with nature than snowshoeing. The construction of snowshoes makes them look a little like tennis racquets, but you certainly won’t sink into the deep powder of Grossarl Valley.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that snowshoeing isn’t the type of sport that will get you in shape. Even while standing still on your snowshoe hike you might find yourself being winded, but that is also because of the “breath-taking” views around you.
Winter Hiking in Grossarl
You can also simply leave the snowshoes at home and head out on one of the many prepared hiking trails for a winter hike or walk. A total of 35km of hiking trails are prepared for you each winter and wind through the picturesque Grossarl Valley. Take a walk along the Grossarler Ache River or hike to the top of one of the lit toboggan runs and cruise down to the valley below on a toboggan.
Guided Snowshoe Hikes in Salzburg
Do you feel more comfortable under the watchful eye of a local guide or would you like to learn more about the region while snowshoeing? If the answer is yes, then guided snowshoe hikes in the Grossarl Valley are the perfect choice for you. Once per week a national park ranger leads a group into the Hirschgrubenalm area – free of charge as an Edelweiss guest! A fairy-tale forest snowshoe hike is – as the name suggests – like a fairy-tale: for around 1 hour you’ll hike through the winter landscape listening to stories and seeing the Grossarl Valley from a different side. Snowshoes can be rented on site at the hotel for any hike (surcharge possible).
