Winter hikes

guided or snowshoe hikes

Enjoy the snow-covered paths and accompany our hiking guides to their secret spots or savour the wintry seclusion on a snowshoe hike.

Snowshoe hike at the nature and wellness hotel Höflehner

Discover snowshoeing in the Enns Valley. Snowshoes are not only ideal for exploring enchanting winter landscapes, but also for slowing down your pace of life and really taking a deep breath. And the best thing about it: no previous experience is necessary. Just strap on your snowshoes and let the fun begin. On our guided tours with our hiking guides Kurt and Edith, you can set off directly from the hotel into the impressive winter landscape of the Gumpental or explore the winter hiking trails of the Schladming-Dachstein region. We provide snowshoes and poles free of charge.
