Snow-shoe and winter hiking around the Hotel Kristall
Mountain experience in the crystal-clear winter landscape
Are you looking for a change from skiing on the piste? Or do you belong to those who do not go skiing altogether? Also off the slopes there are winter activities that will allow you to enjoy the marvellous snow landscape in the clear mountain air. How about a winter or snow-shoe hike starting right at the hotel?
When the path glitters in front of you, the trees and houses are covered in snow and the weather is sunny, nothing can stop you from stepping outside: Get into your winter clothes and put on your warm hiking boots and plod along, always following the path of nature. On cleared winter hiking paths you can hike without any additional equipment but if you want to hike cross-country through the deep snow, you will need special snow-shoes. Thanks to their large surface, they allow you to get ahead without sinking too much.
Infinite winter hiking experience in Tuxer- and Zillertal
The range of winter hiking tours extends from sporty ambitious tours to short walks. Many of the hikes are also suitable for families with small children. Zillertal offers more than 400 km of cleared winter hiking trails, 68 km of which spread across the holiday region Tux-Finkenberg. A challenge are the winter hiking trails on the Eggalm or on the Sommerbergalm. The reward for the ascent – a stop in a rustic hut with Tyrolean specialties and a steaming cup of tea – will compensate for all strains.
Those who want to enjoy the great view with less effort can simply take the mountain cable car and ride up to enjoy a panoramic walk.
Hiking is healthy fitness training in the fresh mountain air – even in winter! Enjoy the combination of natural experience, quietude, deceleration and exercise. With red cheeks and a happy smile on your face you will return to the Hotel Kristall in Finkenberg in the afternoon where the hot sauna and a massage will await you.
