Discover snowshoe hiking in the Enns Valley. Snowshoes are not only ideal for exploring enchanting winter landscapes, but also for slowing down your pace of life a bit and really breathing a sigh of relief. And the best thing about it: no previous experience is necessary. Strap on your snowshoes and let the fun begin
