Winter parade!

Try the new, discover the hidden, and stay curious

Discover the unspoiled winter landscape with mountain boots or snow-shoes and enjoy the quietness and beauty of nature. An avalanche-safe sign-posted snow-shoe hiking network awaits you. The final destinations are the wild romantic Tschamin Valley, the snowed-in forests below Rosengarten and Schlern, and the cosy huts along the route.

This gentle way of moving is ideal for non-skiers who want to enjoy the wintry mountain landscape far away from mass tourism. An experience, which will remain a lasting memory of your winter holiday.

We offer free rental of snow-shoes, spats and hiking poles.
