Snowshoeing trekking in Venosta Valley

Pure winter fun

Experience the winter from its sporty side.
Snowshoeing is one of the most natural ways of getting around in untouched nature and has evolved over time to an absolute craze.

Away from the bustling activities on the slopes and the roads, snowshoe trekking and trudging along paths in deep snow make for an unforgettable experience. There is hardly a better way to explore the snowy and untouched landscape of the Venosta Valley mountains.

The OberVenosta Valley holiday region offers big and small snow fans a large network of clearly marked hiking trails, mountain trails and secluded paths. Convivial forest trails, challenging alpine tours, secluded and romantic trips through the glittering snowy landscape - everyone can find their ideal tour trails here.
Many trails offer spectacular panoramic views of the mountains around the Sesvenna group, the Ortler group and the Ötztal Alps, but also distant views of the Dolomites.

Snowshoeing in the Venosta Valley is a real winter treat for all those who are looking for an unforgettable experience of nature.

Snowshoe trekking in Venosta Valley


Plamourt | Reschen

Altitude: 2,083 m | Duration: 3 hours | Elevation change: 500 m
The high level of Plamourt above the village of Resia/Reschen was once used as a military defensive fortification and was part of the rampart on the Passo di Resia/Reschen Pass. Even in winter, parts of the dragon's teeth roadblock can be seen - the snowshoe trek on the Plamourt high plateau, view included from Ortler Mountain, is thus also suitable for history buffs. The starting point of the 3-hour hike is the forest track next to the football pitch in Resia/Reschen, the clearings again provide an unobstructed view over the valley.

 

Watleskreuz (cross)

Altitude: 2,010 m | Duration: 5 hours | Elevation change: 940 m

The snowshoe trek from the bottom lift station of the Watles family skiing resort over the Höferalm (lodge) to the Plantapatschhütte (Alpine hut) leads through the Zirbelwald and wintry forest with larches up to 2,010 m above sea level. The moderate hike requires some stamina; hikers will arrive at the Plantapatsch Alpine hut and be rewarded with unique mountain scenery.
