Snowshoeing at Lake Achensee

Snowshoeing is becoming increasingly popular. Which is no surprise: It’s an activity that allows you to immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature, far away from the noise and bustle. The best starting points for impressive snowshoe hikes at Lake Achensee are the idyllic village of Steinberg am Rofan, the village of Achenkirch and the Karwendel valleys in Pertisau. 

Follow trails deep into the magical winter landscape on a self-guided tour or join a guided snowshoe walk. The expert guides know the terrain inside out and share local knowledge and stories about the area. And they also know where to see the most common alpine animals – ibexes, chamois, ptarmigans, and golden eagles circling majestically overhead in the cold winter air.
