Snowshoe Hiking
& Ski Touring

Away from pistes and hustle and bustle

Do you love the peace and quiet of nature? Do you like to move alone across meadows and through forests? Do you want to be as lonely as possible on the mountain? In Saalbach-Hinterglemm and the region you will find many places that you can explore and enjoy alone.

The mountains around the Glemmtal valley offer a multitude of opportunities to go on a ski tour with touring skis - some of which are even signposted. Search for and find your own way to the summit and, after a snack with a fantastic view, ski down untouched deep snow slopes into the valley - an unforgettable experience.

For those who want to do a hike without skis, "snowshoes" are the solution. Strap the snowshoes under your winter boots and hike across meadows and through forests to places that are otherwise inaccessible on foot. An experience for young and old.


The Glemmtal and the entire Pinzgau offer the perfect landscape for your ski tours. Here you can undertake countless tours of all levels of difficulty. From an easy and short hike on one of the Pinzgau grassy mountains to tours on alpine pastures and peaks with fantastic views to ski tours in the high mountains, you will find every type of ski tour here.

If you have never been on a ski tour before, there are ski instructors and mountain guides in Saalbach-Hinterglemm who will show you the right technique and the appropriate tours.

If you don't have any equipment yet, you can rent or buy suitable equipment in the local sports shops.

Winter hiking in Saalbach Hinterglemm

Discover nature without much equipment

Skiing or touring with skis on your feet is not for everyone. If you prefer to explore the area by foot, you have two easier options in Saalbach-Hinterglemm and the region.

Either you use the many cleared winter hiking trails and get out into nature or you use snowshoes and can move freely in nature. On snowshoes, simply make your own way through the powdery snow across meadows and up to alpine pastures.

This way you can get to places that are otherwise inaccessible. Here you can quietly observe the fauna and flora, maybe you'll see a deer or a rabbit, maybe a chamois or a fox. An incomparable experience!
