Winter hiking in Tyrol - holiday experiences away from the ski circuit
Winter holidays in Kitzbühel
Die-hard skiers and boarders can look beyond the slopes for fun. Among the most popular alternatives are guided snowshoe tours and winter hiking in Tyrol.
What are snowshoes exactly? They look a bit like tennis rackets and prevent you from sinking into the powder snow. You can explore the most beautiful corners of the region, passing farms, streams and snow-covered fields. The paths are laid out in different degrees of difficulty.
HOW ABOUT A GUIDED SKI TOUR? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The adventurous who seek to go further up into the Tyrolean mountains and experience them with all senses will enjoy a guided ski tour. This is one for the fitter folk out there: while the measured ascent on skis offers sensational views, it can be strenuous for the inexperienced or less fit. Popular destinations for guided ski tours are Harschbichl on the Kitzbüheler Horn in St. Johann in Tyrol, as well as Bichlalm, Kelchsau and Spertental and the Wilder Kaiser - all offering tours of all lengths and levels of difficulty. Many guests of COOEE alpin Hotel Kitzbüheler Alpen enjoy the Harschbichl ski tour in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
