Snow shoe hiking in Oberlech

Float above the snow

Even before the start of the ski season, the time is ready for snow shoeing. This old way of transportation has become more and more popular again in the last years. The concept to enlarge the sole of the shoe and its surface so it wouldn’t sink into the snow has been developed independently by various snow-kissed regions.

Snowshoeing in Oberlech

For a long tour through the idyllic winter landscapes you will need

  • Snowshoes, in order to be able to stay on the snow surface
  • Spats or gauntlets so that the snow doesn’t get into your shoe
  • Ski poles with big pole baskets in order to not sink into the snow
  • Breathable, waterproof and warming winter clothes (many layers)
  • High, waterproof winter-shoes or hiking-shoes
  • Gloves
  • Beanie, scarf
  • Rucksack with warm tea and a little snack

Beautiful tours

Far away from the buzzing on the pistes there is a hiking network of 38km available for you. A hike from Tannegg in Oberlech to Kriegeralpe takes you about 3km over the white landscapes and wide fields. The way from Zug to Älpele is an hour hike. Breathe in and feel the chilly winter air streaming through your lungs. Feel the winter intensely and become part of this great natural environment on the Arlberg.

As a passionate hiker and nature lover, Daniela Pfefferkorn is delighted every time she can swap the office chair for the snowshoes. Once a week she will find the time to just indulge in the wonderful landscapes and crystal-clear air.

Taking a hike over the wide snow fields is almost meditative. The steady steps and the monotone breathing in and out to prevent stitches as well as the snow’s glister have a calming effect. The connection of body and mind will be balanced.

You cannot wish for a better location for snowshoe hiking on the Arlberg. The Goldener Berg Hotel is located in the middle of car-free Oberlech, directly on the ski run, only a few metres away from the edge of the forest. Start your snowshoe adventure right at the doorstep.

Be one with nature

While you are hiking over the Arlberg sun pleateau, watch out for the little traces in the snow next to you. If you look closer you will maybe be able to tell if it was a deer, a stag, a rabbit or a fox running through the snow. The warmer the days get and the closer the end of March is approaching, the busier become the animals in Oberlech. If you keep your eyes open, you might see some animals dashing over the snowy fields.

Look forward to a holiday during which you will become one with the Arlberg landscapes. Send us a no obligation holiday enquiry or book your relaxing winter holiday at the Goldener Berg Hotel online
