IMPORTANT UPDATE: At Monday, 15 February 2021, the Austrian Federal Government announced that restaurants, hotels, accommodations have to closed until further notice. Health is our utmost priority, and we continue to support these measures to combat the virus. Unfortunately, this also means that the Achensee Snowshoeing Camps 2021 will have to be cancelled.
A Snowshoeing is a wonderful winter activity that lets you experience nature off the cleared winter paths. Get away from the crowds and go on a journey of discovery through the crunching deep snow in the crisp mountain air. How about joining a course that teaches you everything about snowshoeing?
The snowshoeing camps at Lake Achensee complement your winter experience and offer participants the opportunity to learn the basics on being safe in the open terrain. The camps occur on 27/28 February and on 6/7 March 2021. The 2-day camps are run by state-certified mountain and ski guides. The time is divided between theory and hands-on practical sessions, teaching participants the proper behaviour in the mountains and the requisite skills, such as tour planning, how to deal with avalanches, assessing potential risks and choosing the right equipment.
Participants will stay overnight at Hotel Bergland in Pertisau. The first day will be rounded off with a warming group dinner, followed by an informative lecture about equipment, alpine dangers and avalanche awareness. On the second day, the group will be breaking trail and put their skills to the test in the breathtaking wintry landscape of the Achensee region.
