Winter and snowshoe hiking in Tuxertal

During a winter holiday in the Tux-Finkenberg holiday region in the Zillertal, around 68 km of winter hiking trails, some of which have only been rolled down, cleared or cleared, ensure a winter variety.

The winter hiking trails to the Eggalm or the Sommerbergalm are a challenge - rustic huts and the panorama restaurants with Zillertal specialties await as a reward. Those who prefer to experience the great view comfortably can take the cable cars to the individual mountain stations. 

Experience snowy landscapes and a glittering sea of 1,000 snow diamonds on your winter holiday in the Zillertal. Enjoy a snowshoe hike in untouched nature, where you get to know many new impressions of the snow-covered Zillertal mountains away from the slopes. Experienced mountain guides accompany you to the most beautiful places in the Tux-Finkenberg holiday region.
