Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Snowshoe hike with
wildlife spotting


Nature Watch – Kals am Grossglockner

Equipped with a spotting scope and binoculars – we will make our way through the say and follow the tracks of wild animals



  • From the newly construction Glocknerwinkel car park, we will start hiking along the summer path towards Glorerhütte. Following the path, we will be able to watch the impressive ibex and chamois in their natural habitat on the steep slopes of the Ködnitz valley. The path will lead us up to the Gratzwinkel from where we will start making our way back over the knolls.

    Special feature:

    Does a marmot really hibernate all winter? What do ibex and chamois eat when the ground is covered by snow? When don't golden eagles and bearded vultures migrate south? Together with a national park ranger, who will have a spotting scope, you will be able to watch animals up close in their natural habitat.

    Important information:

    Suitable for children aged 6 and above.
    Snow shoes are available.
    What to bring: sturdy winter shoes (no moon boots), ski poles, winter clothing, drink and a small snack
    The tour can only take place is the road is passable and depends on the avalanche conditions, which change daily.
