After a sporty ascent and refreshments at Hofer Alpl, there is a nearly 5 kilometre long descent with the sled back to the starting point. The unique mountain panorama of Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park will accompany you during your sledding descent through snow-covered forests and meadows.

This is an experience which you will remember for a long time.

What is more beautiful than hiking through the largest high-alpine plateau in Europe – Schlern-Seiser Alm – with snowshoes on your feet in the winter? 

Thanks to snowshoes you can also dare to walk in deep snow without sinking in and having to dig your feet up again. As a result you can effortlessly reach special places and landscapes in the middle of natural surroundings which you would never discover on normal trails, accompanied by the silence of winter and the crunching of fresh snow under the snowshoes. Try it!
