Snow-covered mountains, pristine nature. A snowshoe tour is one of the most popular winter activities. From the Bavarian Alps to the Bavarian Forest and up to the Ochsenkopf Mountain, Bavaria offers a huge range of snowshoe tours. Beginners can enjoy this sport just as much as advanced snowshoers.
A snow shoe tour through the deep snow is a very special way of experiencing nature. Away from the cleared winter hiking trails, you can wander through the snowy landscape and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. A trip that would be a real challenge in regular winter shoes is child’s play in snowshoes. Instead of sinking into the snow, you walk lightly through the snowy winter landscape.
Many regions in Bavaria offer guided snowshoe tours. This is a great opportunity to try snowshoeing for the first time. However, longer tours require a degree of physical fitness. And after all that effort, the hot cocoa and apple strudel with vanilla sauce in the mountain hut tastes even better. That’s a promise.
