Snowshoeing in Lech Zürs
Make your own way and succumb to the simple charms of wintertime while snowshoeing on the Arlberg.

Stomping through the winter silence with snowshoes is one of the most relaxing things you can do for your body and mind. Along the way, enjoy the silence of pristine nature at your own pace and encounter beautiful photo motifs. There are few finer feelings in life than taking a break after a gorgeous snowshoe adventure.

 

Winter sports fun without prior experience

 

One of the great advantages of snowshoeing compared to other winter sports is that anyone with average physical condition can participate without needing any additional technical skills. With the right pair of snowshoes on your feet, immediately immerse yourself in the wintry nature of Lech Zürs. Whether you prefer to do this alone, in the company of your loved ones, with a guide, with your colleagues from the office, or romantically with your partner is entirely up to you. Anything is possible!

There’s a snowshoe model to suit every foot at the snowshoe rental

You can rent the right pair of snowshoes including poles at one of the local sports shops. The large tread surface of the snowshoes prevents you from sinking too far into the powder snow and thus enables you to cover longer distances. With the right snowshoe, nothing stands in the way of a hike through the snowy landscape of Lech Zürs.

 

Snowshoeing through the tranquil winter landscape

 

Imagine the satisfying crunch of snow beneath your feet with every step you take. Step by step, you’ll become more and more comfortable with this new way of hiking, which does take some getting used to at first. Soon, however, proceeding through a magic winter world will feel like second nature. With all your senses stimulated, experience deep relaxation far from the concerns of everyday life.

Guided snowshoe hikes

The area around Lech Zürs am Arlberg is a mecca for snowshoe hikers. Guided tours, where snowshoes and ski poles are provided, are an ideal way for beginners to try out this engaging sport. The only things you need to bring are sturdy shoes and comfortable winter clothing. Any day of the week, families and groups can of course book a private guide to accompany them on a personal snowshoe hike.

 

By torchlight through the night

 

There is also a guided torch-lit snowshoe hike every Tuesday and Thursday. It’s a highlight for romantics who want to enjoy the evening atmosphere together by torchlight. For kids as well, a torch-lit hike on snowshoes is always a special experience, starting at twilight and ending beneath a mostly clear starry sky. In between, you can listen to your guide tell stories over a hot drink.
