Snow shoeing is a more relaxed alternative to high-adrenalin downhill skiing. With your snow shoes on you will hike the marked trails, enjoy the peaceful winter atmosphere and reach places where no one else ever goes. Peace inside out – could it get any better?
The Johnsbacher loop trail offers fantastic conditions for snow shoeing. So does the hiking trail from Kaiserau to Klinkehütte Hut, which is open all year long. Lahngangkogel Peak, Ardning Alm Lodge and Grabneralm Lodge have also dealt with one or two snow shoes. Those hiking the Nature Park on snow shoes shouldn’t miss the delicious treats offered by the ‘speciality partners’. Get on the marked trails, enjoy the sometimes sparkly, sometimes grey landscape and feel happy about being in the middle of it all.
If you prefer company or if you don’t feel entirely safe on your own then you can join one of the guided snow shoeing tours or register for the Snow Shoe BaseCamp, where, for several days, you’ll receive training on how to go snow shoeing by yourself. The National Park has come up with a guided tour that combines snow shoeing and deer spotting. The tour is guided by professional hunters from the Styrian Department of State Forests.
