Winter hiking & Snowshoe hikes

Various hiking trails in the valley and on the Gastein mountains invite you to explore the winter landscape. All paths are well prepared and marked so that nothing stands in the way of your off-piste winter experience. We, here at the Aktivhotel Gasteiner Einkehr are happy to give you insider tips and hiking recommendations.

Snowshoe hiking is becoming more and more popular. No wonder. It is a sport that can be practiced by anyone without any previous knowledge. Walking through the winter wonder landscape of the Gastein Valley, far away from the throngs of tourist, has an almost meditative effect, is fun and feels so good! Enjoy deep snow-covered meadows and reach unique views into untouched landscapes. Alone or in a group … During the winter months, guided snowshoe hikes can be made in Angertal, Fulseck and Graukogel. Using the right technique and together with a group, it is much easier to hike. A special experience is the guided snowshoe hike along the snowshoe trail in Dorfgastein: in small groups you hike from Fulseck via the Arltörl to the middle station. The snowshoes can be rented in the ski rental stores right next to the Aktivhotel Gasteiner Einkehr. Take a look at the Gastein Valley’s winter hiking map – map (c) Gasteinertal Tourismus – to plan your next walk or hike.

Tobogganing in Gastein – at day and night

Velocity can not only be found on the slopes but also on the tobogganing runs of Gastein. Put on your winter clothes, bring along sturdy shoes, pack up your sled, and off you go on a fun toboggan ride. It doesn’t require much experience to glide downhill with the toboggan. But caution is still required. Drive only so fast in order to be able to brake in time, and wearing a helmet should be a must. Then nothing stands in the way of the pleasure of sledding.

Two natural toboggan runs will allow rapid fun during your holidays – the natural toboggan run Aeroplan on the Schlossalm (3.3 km) and the natural toboggan run Bellevue Alm (2.5 km). And those who haven’t powered out thoroughly during the day or fancy an outing in the evening can also go tobogganing at night on the flood-lit run.
