Guided snowshoeing in the Austrian Mountains with pick-up/drop-off in Vienna

Leave the city and join us for a snowshoeadventure in the mountains

Do you want to explore the breathtaking scenery of the Austrian Alps, but you only have a short time to do it?

For everyone in search of the silence of Mother Nature away from the busy ski slopes, snowshoeing is the ideal alternative. For centuries, hiking with snowshoes has been the only way to get around in deep snow. Snowshoeing doesn’t require any particular previous experience, and can easily be picked up by everyone.

Expert tips from an experienced guide will help you to navigate the deep snow as you use two modern, lightweight snowshoes and two poles to trudge through the winterwonderland.

A one day excursion with an experienced snowshoeing guide will allow you to enjoy eastern part of the Austria Alps in  Lower Austria and Upper Styria without lodging, returning to Vienna in the evening

No matter whether you are just on a sightseeing or business trip to Vienna or you are permanently located in Vienna, just contact me to check my availability and discuss specific details. I am happy to arrange private trips that meet individual group preferences and needs. If you are looking for a multiday snowshoe-adventure, contact me for a customized multiday private trip.

No experience necessary and only 90 minutes away from Vienna.

Schneeberg, Rax and Wechsel are only a few examples of the available destinations in Lower Austria and Upper Styria. With some of their peaks higher than 2000 meters, they offer stunning views in good weather.
Experience a different world next to the city of Vienna. The landscape is still intact and has remained its beauty, originality and diversity. Each region has its own appearance and specialities – idyllic valleys, Pannonian, central European and alpine highlands with a small part of the high mountains, on the east margins of the Alps.
The silence of the winter forest is broken only by the soft, regular “swish, swish” of the snowshoes as you move quietly through the snowy mountains. This is snowshoeing at its best. The only way for you to travel through a world otherwise populated by deer, chamois, fox and rabbit
