Winter hikes

guided or snowshoe hikes

Enjoy the deep snow-covered trails and accompany our hiking guides to their secret spots or enjoy the winter seclusion on a snowshoe hike.

Snowshoe hike at the Höflehner Nature and Wellness Hotel

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 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. On our guided tours with our hiking guides Kurt and Edith you start 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.
