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.

Avalanche educational trail & transceiver checkpoints

Safety is the top priority when heading into the backcountry. The Achensee region has installed five avalanche transceiver checkpoints at various ski tour starting points: at the car park Falkenmoos in Achenkirch, at the entrance of the Unterautal valley in Achenkirch, at the car park Achenseehof, at the car park Hubertus and at the start of the ORTOVOX avalanche educational trail Rofan. Located in the Rofan mountains at an elevation of 1,800 metres, the educational trail features seven interpretive panels explaining potential hazards in avalanche-prone terrain and how to stay safe in the mountains.
