Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Full moon snowshoe hike

Mallnitz / Stockerhütte

Experience the stunning winter landscape of the Tauern Valley by night! With an experienced National Park Ranger as your guide, follow animal tracks along the snow-covered trail and explore the deep secrets of nature as it hibernates in winter. With a little luck, you may even get to spot some of the wild animals in question.

    • The nocturnal winter world of the Tauern Valley is the destination for this easy snowshoe hike. At the Mallnitz Visitor Centre, you will meet your National Park Ranger and pick up your rental equipment (snowshoes, poles). From there, the tour takes you through the enchanting winter landscape along the Tauernbach stream to the Stockerhütte, all by the light of the full moon. The mountain hut offers you the opportunity to warm up with a mug of hot tea in cosy surroundings before returning to the starting point along the road.
