Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

– insights & views of Hohe Tauern

  • Take an easy snowshoe hike through the Wasenmoos at Pass Thurn to get a clearer picture of the impressive power of the Hohe Tauern region.

    National park rangers provide insights and views into this unique habitat, which seems inaccessible and threatening to humans in winter. This easy tour is also the perfect introduction for first-time snowshoe* hikers going through snow-covered landscapes. However, this guided winter hike is a fantastic experience for advanced snowshoe hikers too.


    *Hire: Snowshoes can be hired free of charge from the national park authority. Please let us know when booking if you require a pair.


    Please remember:

    It is essential to book on for this tour.
    It is not permitted to take dogs on this tour out of consideration to other participants and the wild animals.



    • Winter-proof footwear with non-slip soles
    • Winter clothing (possibly change of clothing)
    • Food and drink (tea, snacks, cereal bars)
