Snowshoeing & Touring Ski

Winter in the Upper Drau Valley opens up wonderful hiking trails in the valley and on the alpine pastures. Where pasture fences border fields and meadows in summer, there is no stone in the way in winter. Whether you strap on cross-country skis, touring skis or snowshoes, miles of groomed and ungroomed winter trails await.

Go ona winter journey of discovery and breathe in the peace. Hike on snow paths, whether in the forest, along the Drava River or in the mountains. Back at the Glocknerhof, warm up in the sauna in the wellness area, enjoy a good dinner and end the day at the bar.
