On snowshoes

explore the silver region

A snowshoe hike on our sunny plateaus has always been an invitation to relax. High up, but not out of the world, the everyday stress is escaped and the peace is enjoyed. Isolated animal tracks arouse curiosity for more and entice you to take a snowshoe hike away from civilization. Step by step, accompanied by the dull crunch of the powder snow, you enter a landscape full of mysteries and uniqueness.

Best of Winter: Enjoy the winter in a gentle way

Gentle winter sports in all their facets - that's what the Europe-wide "Best of Winter" association stands for. This includes the snowshoe hike through a winter-snow-covered valley as well as the cleared panoramic circular hiking trail; the ski tour summit conquered under one's own power as well as the relaxed day of skiing on the slopes with friends; the sledding evening at a rustic hut just as much as the great cross-country skiing round across a magical winter forest. Best of Winter offers winter experiences beyond the tourist strongholds. Instead, you'll find peace and seclusion in unspoiled, natural winter landscapes.

The Best of Winter regions are scenically as varied as their winter offers, in one they are all the same: They set on nature experiences beyond the beaten track and far from mass tourism: Nature Park Ammergauer Alps, Berchtesgadener Land, Silver Region Karwendel in Tyrol, Dachstein Salzkammergut in Upper Austria, Großarltal in Salzburg Land, National Park Region Hohe Tauern Carinthia and the region Ausseerland - Salzkammergut offer winter sports enthusiasts a wide range of impressive types of exercise in wonderfully unspoiled nature - always felt with a breeze of peace and freedom.
