The best snowshoe hikes around Mayrhofen

Do you want to get away from the hurly-burly on the slopes to find some peace and tranquillity? Join us at one of our snowshoe tours, we take you to the most quiet and beautiful places in the valley. All tours get adapted to the level of fitness of the actual group.

We put on our snowshoes, take some ski poles and off we hike into Zillertal wilderness. Your guide is doing the hard work in front, you follow in his track enjoying the landscape.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of snowshoeing, just motivation and maybe you should not be a total couch potato…

Snowshoeing is also a perfect BAD WEATHER PROGRAM!
We have nice tours for bad weather days, people always enjoy those days as well, not only when the sun is out. All our tours take you out into wilderness, no ski lifts, restaurants, après ski bars around for a couple of hours!

In the season from Christmas to middle of March we have tours regularly during the week, so drop by the office in Mayhrofen, give us a call or drop an email for a tour with Action Club Zillertal.

Procedure of our snow shoe tours:

We start our tours at 9 am at the office in Mayrhofen.
You get your equipment there, than we hop on the action club van to drive to the starting point of the tour. There is various different tours to select of, depending on group, weather and snow conditions. We will be back around 2 pm in Mayrhofen.

From the starting point we all hike towards a nice and remote mountain hut (no restaurant), hiking through the woods, glades and sometimes using summer-mountain trails with no other people around. When we reach the hut, you will get some sandwich, tea, chocolate and schnapps from our guide to refill battery. After this break and some great views, we go back towards the valley.
