Snowshoeing at Hintertux Glacier

It is impressive that after just a few meters from the start on Sommerberg, you find yourself in the middle of nature, but still away from the hustle and bustle of skiing, enjoying pure nature and watching the busy slopes "from above", so to speak. You hike along the ridge through the winter landscape and try one or two "sun benches", which invite you to linger and top up on vitamin D. After a rest and a souvenir photo in front of the glacier backdrop, the route continues. The tour ends after approx. 1.5 hours walking time back at the Sommerberg.
