Snowshoe hiking in the Montafon

Snowshoe hiking in the Montafon, Vorarlberg

You can combine nature, relaxation and exercise on a snowshoe hike.

Known for its ski areas, Vorarlberg awaits with numerous sporting opportunities away from the ski pistes. Crystal clear mountain air, perfect silence apart from the sound of fresh snow crunching under your shoes, and above all breath-taking panoramic views of the Rätikon, Silvretta and Verwall on the horizon: this is how good the Montafon winter feels on snowshoes, also known as bear paws. You’ll come closer to your personal winter fairy tale with each step through the untouched winter landscape.

On these giant “paws”, you will discover nature and enjoy the silence while snowshoe hiking. The 150 kilometres of marked routes and guided tours lead through the snowy winter landscape, across glittering fields of snow and through enchanting forests.

So close to the 3,000-metre peaks

Snowshoe hike to the Silvretta Reservoir

Hiking up to the Silvretta-Bielerhöhe on snowshoes is a high-alpine experience that will thrill everyone. Step by step, the winter athletes hike across the idyllic alpine winter landscape and explore unspoiled terrain. This easy tour is also suitable for beginners who are out and about in the mountains for the very first time. Snow towers up to five metres high line the landscape and invite you to marvel at them.

Mighty summits like the Hohes Rad repeatedly come into view; on the second half of the route, Piz Buin can also be seen; at 3,312 metres, it is the tallest mountain in Vorarlberg. All in all, this is an especially enjoyable hiking experience you won’t want to miss.
