In the Kaunertal, hiking is a popular activity in winter, too!
The nature park and glacier region takes you step by step through the unique Tyrolean winter landscape! You decide whether you prefer to go big foot or small...
Winter and snowshoe hikes are not just a change from skiing. They can either be especially romantic or fun for the whole family. All depending on what you're looking for in your Tyrolean holiday.
Winter hikes in the Kaunertal
In particular, the Kaunergrat Nature Park and Fendels offer winter hiking trails, including many that are accessible. For example, the 5.6 km Harbe trail. Parallel to the cross-country trails and surrounded by forests or snow-covered meadows, you can experience the magic of winter in Tyrol. Several mountain lodges provide culinary delights along the way.
Alternative tip: try Nordic winter walking in the nature park and glacier region. A dedicated Nordic walking school offers special courses!
Snowshoeing in the Kaunergrat Nature Park
Already familiar with snowshoes? At Harbe Weiher, it's a comfortable two hours and 2.5 km through the snow. The Feigwasser circular trail covers 3 km and is equally attractive. Beginners and experts will also feel at home on the 4.5 km route through the Görfen Moor bog and be done in just three hours.
Also recommended: the circular trail at Piller Sattel. Would you rather make your way to a mountain hut? The ideal starting point for most snowshoe tours is the Kaunergrat Nature Park Museum.

Always safety first when hiking in winter
Together we are strong! True to this motto, we recommend making your first attempts at snowshoeing in a group. During a taster course with experienced professionals, you will quickly get to know the special features of having "big feet" while always being safe.
The meeting point for the three-hour snowshoe hike is the Kaunergrat Nature Park Museum. The cost is €6 for the course and another €6 for snowshoe rental. For more guided tours, check out the weekly events calendar.
Speaking of safety: Make sure to look at the Winter Hiking Service Checklist. It contains many useful tips and important information about first aid, tour planning, and proper equipment.
