Winter with many faces

Winter hiking

Sölden not only has perfectly groomed slopes for all skill levels - There's more! Two boards under your feet doesn't necessarily mean skiing. The largest municipality in Austria offers plenty of space for enough exercise.


In total, there are around 50 kilometers of cross-country skiing trails in the Ötztal. Well-groomed and signposted trails for your cross-country skiing holiday in Tyrol. Both skaters and classic runners get their money’s worth with us. The different routes allow for pure variety, so that you don’t have to cover long distances to indulge in alpine pleasure in a sporty way. The rear Ötztal offers you perfect conditions in a technically favorable altitude.

There are a few shops and sports shops available for renting equipment, so you are well equipped on site. This makes Camping Sölden the perfect starting point.

Best connection to the cross-country trails

We try to make the active experience with us in the valley as pleasant as possible. For example, there is an optimal bus connection to the cross-country skiing center in the Ötztal. The use of the cross-country ski bus is free for all guests with a guest card. The trails can also be used free of charge.


An untouched nature with bizarre slopes, rock and ice peaks awaits you high up. Untouched slopes, powder snow wherever you look, peace, quiet and an extra portion of athletic challenge. Freeriding and feel the flow. We feel the boards slide on the snow. Explore the Ötztal mountains. Enjoy your first turns in the alpine terrain when the sun is shining.

Important – Note the current avalanche warning level in Tyrol. Do not take any risks.

The popular sport of ski touring is gaining more enthusiastic fans every year. With the right equipment, wonderful ski tours are available for you in the Ötztal villages of Sölden, Vent, Niederthai and Ötz.


For inexperienced ski tourers, beginners or people not familiar with the area, we recommend booking a mountain or ski guide on site. They bring you safely to the most beautiful ski tour peaks in the Ötztal mountains. (e.g .: Wildspitze, Weisskugel, Hintere Schwärze, Hochfirst, and much more.) Alpine training such as theoretical and practical experience increases safety and thus also active experience. Further details and information about ski tours in the Ötztal can be found here.


Even in winter there is a lot to discover about hiking. Fairytale-like snow-covered forests, snow crystals hang on the trees and a crunch can be heard with every step. Snowshoes enable a pleasant hiking experience and a gentle experience of nature without sinking into the snow.


Let yourself be intoxicated by the well-marked hiking trails and discover the peace and nature for yourself. The idyllic landscape, embedded in a blanket of snow, gives a feeling of lightness and brings all your senses together again. Winter hiking in the Ötztal is a pleasure for body and mind.

Embark on the journey with special snowshoes and choose between over 185 kilometers of winter hiking trails from Haiming to Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Children can also get enthusiastic about sport and body and mind get fit again through the pleasant sport. After extensive hikes through the winter landscape around Sölden, you should visit our wellness oasis.
