Genuine Nature Experiences Snowshoeing in Rauris Valley

Immer mehr Wintersportler suchen die Ruhe in den Bergen und werden im Raurisertal in Österreich fündig. Zum Beispiel beim Schneeschuhwandern im Talschluss Kolm Saigurn, wo man die Kraft der Natur auf Schritt und Tritt inmitten unberührter Winterlandschaften spürt.

Ein markierter Schneeschuhtrail führt vom Alpengasthof Bodenhaus (1.280 m) bis zum Talschluss Kolm Saigurn (1.600 m). Geführte Schneeschuhwanderungen mit einem Nationalpark Ranger werden während der Wintersaison zweimal wöchentlich angeboten. Der kostenlose Tälerbus bringt Schneeschuhwanderer, Winterwanderer und Langläufer von Rauris bis zum Bodenhaus und zurück.

Voraussetzung für eine Schneeschuhwanderung im freien Gelände ist es, sich mit den Gefahren des Winters auseinander zu setzen, die Tour unter Bedachtnahme der Wetter-, Schnee- und Lawinensituation zu planen und sich entsprechend auszurüsten.
