Snowshoeing on the Seiser Alm
A walk like long ago
Our ancestors knew that a larger contact surface prevents sinking too much in deep snow. They used snow tyres or snowshoes to reach remote feeding stations or mountain huts in winter.
After a time in oblivion, snowshoeing is enjoying today a renaissance. And where could you find better options for this natural experience, than snowshoeing on the Seiser Alm?
A real paradise of routes
The backdrop for snowshoeing is unparalleled: the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites with the peaks of Plattkofel, Langkofel, Schlern and Rosengarten is at the same time destination and backdrop of the walks. Signposted and safe from avalanches are the hiking trails, on which the region can be individually discovered by snowshoeing on the Seiser Alm. Along the road network there are numerous huts which invite the weary travelers to a short break with regional delicacies. Once freshly strengthened it goes then on, up to heights that are normally reserved for the ski touring. And when the moon shines bright on the sparkling snow, even moonlight walks with snowshoes are possible, in these occasions some huts are open for even extra nights.
