Snowshoeing in World Heritage

The destination is up to you!

Glistening powder snow, snowy winter landscapes, impressive views over the sea of clouds…, for those who stay away from prepared paths in winter, the fascinating landscape out of light, snow and ice of the World Heritage site of Hallstatt / Dachstein Salzkammergut opens up. The unforgettable view of white peaks against the backdrop of endless blue skies. Sometimes the path through the winter landscape is only possible with snowshoes. But snowshoes are not a new invention. Already the Native Americans used them to prevent themselves from sinking into the snow. Snowshoes make winter walks in the Salzkammergut, far away from roads and hiking trails, into a holiday experience.

Take advantage of this unique means of transportation and float light-footedly over the thick layer of snow. Discover the magical winter wonderland at its best and be enchanted by the winter landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage cultural landscape Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.
