Snowshoeing in South Tyrol

When a thick white blanket is spread over the landscape, we simply put our snowshoes on and walk happily over the snow. Walking on broad soles is by no means a passing fad, as evidenced by a discovery in the Ötztal Alps: In 2003, a snowshoe was found there that was even older than “Ötzi”! There are a few possible routes for snowshoeing starting directly at the hotel, but the neighbouring valleys are even more beautiful. The possibilities for every taste are endless—and just a short drive away. Some tours are perfect for people in good physical form with strong leg muscles; others are appropriate for those who do not exactly strive for maximum athletic performance on their holiday

On tour with Claudia

Claudia knows all the most exciting routes and takes our guest on a snowshoeing tour once a week. By the way, she is also our resident breakfast chef and a passionate mountain runner. You can rent snowshoes at the hotel and turn to the reception desk for tour suggestions. We always have an eye on the weather forecast and can tell you whether there is any risk of avalanches in the area. By the way: The snowshoe that belonged to “Ötzi”’s ancestor is an impressive 6,000 years old, making it roughly 700 years older than our Tyrolean Iceman. The latter can be visited at the Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, where the ancient snowshoe is currently still being studied.
