I have been a mid-mountain guide for 20 years. I enjoy the nature and air of South Tyrol and getting to know the people I accompany and their stories. In winter I dedicate myself to snowshoeing, in summer I prefer mountain biking.

Full description

If your hiking spirit can't be quenched even in the middle of winter, this snowshoe hike in South Tyrol is for you!

Snowshoes on your feet and poles in hand, climb the fresh snow on the slopes of the Ahrntal Valley, starting from the picturesque hamlet of Rio Bianco and ending at the high alpine pastures, constantly accompanied by beautiful alpine scenery.

An excursion for those who love physical activity in the open air and cannot help but experience the mountains, especially in the season when they are the undisputed queen!

What we will do

We will meet the guide at 10:00 a.m. in Rio Bianco (BZ). Before setting off, we can break the ice with a 'little black', as espresso coffee is called in South Tyrol!

Then, having donned our snowshoes (which can be hired on site for €10), we will begin our high mountain trek. Three hours of ascent and 500 m of altitude difference will await us along the slopes of the Ahrntal Valley, for an experience that is certainly challenging but equally exciting and evocative.

Having conquered the alpine pastures and the magnificent views of the valley and surrounding peaks, we will remain for a while in contemplation of nature, just long enough to recover our energy, and then we will set off again for the descent.

The activity lasts 5 hours in total and ends with the return to the starting point.
