Tip: A gentle introduction is provided by the Kitzbühel Alps and the Gerlosplatte tours. If you are new to ski touring and are seeking to gain some experience, the Kitzbühel Alps are the perfect place to do so. The Gerlosplatte in the Zillertal Arena is also a great place for beginners to get a taste of this popular sport. Mesmerising landscapes and gentle slopes await. Prepared pistes safely take you back to the bottom of the valley.

There's a good reason that cross-country skiing is becoming more and more popular every year. The sport combines nature and fitness, providing you with one of the best workouts imaginable. There is hardly a sport that’s more effective in working your muscles than cross-country skiing. It comes as no surprise that sports and health experts regularly cite cross-country skiing as the best sport for a full-body workout.

In the Oberpinzgau region and surrounding areas you will find plenty of opportunities to give the sport a go. We have everything from challenging trails for advanced skiers to easy tracks to gently glide along. Take in breath-taking mountain views and glistening winter scenery. The therapeutic experience out in nature will leave you feeling fully renewed. Combine different tracks and make full use of 107 kilometres of cross-country skiing. If that’s still not enough for you, head over to the Pinzgau Saalachtal, where 200 additional kilometres of trails await.

These days, winter breaks are all about slowing down. If you’re still looking for the best way to achieve that, we recommend snowshoe hiking. Oberpinzgau is the perfect place for winter walks, ensuring pristine relaxation and serene moments of peace in stunning natural scenery. Explore glistening landscapes and soak up the panorama of towering peaks and surrounding glaciers. Wander through quiet forests and discover hidden lakes and other natural treasures. If you venture out into the wild nature, you might even have a chance of crossing wide fields of deep powder snow. Your snowshoes will carry you across the light white and guarantee dry feet.

If you’d rather stay on groomed paths and prefer to wander along one of the many gentle walking paths of the region, you can do so as well. We provide a myriad of winter hiking trails from hut to hut. Enjoy guided trips with excellent vistas at the Hohe Tauern National Park. The valleys of Hollersbachtal, Sulzbachtal and Stubachtal are among the most popular destinations, and the variety of our hiking programme promises rewarding trips for everyone from beginners to mountaineers. A highlight not to be missed is the Hoher Sonnblick mountain, which takes you up to Europe’s highest permanent weather station at 3,106 metres above sea level.
