Hiking valleys & regions

Your winter walk or snowshoe hike here with us could be like this or something similar:

With or without snowshoes, we leisurely leave the first km behind and hike on idyllic winter hiking trails towards the sun. Our hike leads us through snow-covered forests, past huts, glittering icicles and frozen mountain streams deeper and deeper into the untouched winter landscape.

The snow crunches softly underfoot, the snow crystals sparkle in the light of the sun and the clear winter air erases the last thoughts of everyday life from our minds. We wander through the magical winter landscape and enjoy the tracks in the snow. The small things along the way come more and more into focus, the tour becomes easier with every km and the heart beats in harmony with nature. We let ourselves fall, spread our arms and paint the first snow angel in the powdery snow.

We are sure: If you like hiking in summer, you are definitely at the right address in winter as well.

Take a look at our winter packages and experience an unforgettable time here with us at the hiking hotel Gassner in Neukirchen – Austria.
