Snowshoe hiking in Lech am Arlberg
Discover untouched nature
A hike with snowshoes is one of the easiest and at the same time most fulfilling winter activities. You "float" on the untouched deep snow without sinking in, and feel how your head becomes completely free in the clear air. The key to an impressive winter experience for the whole family and also for several generations, especially as no previous knowledge or training is necessary. Uncomplicated at all levels: You can easily rent the right snowshoes at a sports shop in Lech, such as our official partner shop Sportalp Lech.
Glistening snow cover, airy powder snow, soothing silence and picturesque solitude: a snowshoe hike near the Plattenhof offers the beautiful and healthy combination of being out and about in the fresh winter air and engaging in gentle sport at the same time. The large-area foot pads allow you not only to stay on conventional winter paths, but also to venture into deep snow without any problems and even to aim for snow-covered peaks. No wonder this winter mode of transport is becoming increasingly popular.
10,000-year-old alpine tradition
Did you know that more than 10,000 years ago, hunters and gatherers in snowy regions like the Alps were already making snowshoes? In order to prevent sinking in with the enlarged tread surface, they made fur and leather constructions as well as woven woodworks.
