Snow-shoeing in Deutschnofen, Obereggen, Eggen and Petersberg, South Tyrol

Snow-shoe trekking is "in"

And there is scarcely a region more ideal than this unique winter landscape of South Tyrol, which enjoys guaranteed sun for a full 300 days a year.

Cross-country snowshoe trekking in the deep snow of the Dolomites, the experts agree, does not just keep you fit, but is the perfect relaxation for mind and soul. Pure wellness, you might say, with the help of this ancient Eskimo invention. The expense, in comparison to a skiing holiday, is also lower. With your snowshoes ready, all you need is a nice stretch of snow to try them out on.

Snowshoe rookies can also get started with just a minimum of practice. The ideal way is of course to start off by taking a reliable guided tour. Apart from this, walking in a group is far more fun. Guided tours in the South Tyrol always keep to environmentally compatible routes, in order to be able to observe wild animals without disturbing them. And there are indeed plenty of beautiful routes near Tiers at the foot of Rosengarten.

TIP: weekly guided snow-shoe excursions also in Carezza - Welschnofen and Deutschnofen
A day with snow-shoes
'We are going up there today', says Martin as he points to the Rosengarten, the legendary mountain range. So on your snow-shoes and off you go. We quickly cover the 200 meters in altitude difference that separate us from the foot of the mountain. The way leads us to Laurin's wall. 'Lunch time,' shouts Martin as we reach Anglwiesen. He couldn't have chosen a more beautyful place. The Latemar and Schlern appear mightily in front of us; our eyes drift far off to the wild and romantic peaks of the Tschamin and to the Vajolet's towers.
The crystal-clear winter air makes the mountains look so close that you can touch them. While we enjoy the view, Martin has already set the table for us. Speck, cured ham, sausages, chees and Schüttelbrot (local bread) are waiting for us. And there's even a glass of wine for everyone. This is South Tyrol at is best! As the sun slowly makes its way back to the west, we get ready for our descent across the Traunwiesen. A superb day is coming to its end!

Snowshoe hiking into the Tschamin Valley
A wild, romantic valley between the Schlern and the Rose Garden
DESCRIPTION OF TOUR: The ascent begins above St. Zyprian (1,175 meters above sea-level) across the Doss Meadows and – at the start – along the Forest Road toward the "Schwarzn Lettn." Now the trail becomes a little more narrow and leads over a wooden bridge, ascending slowly into the valley, which grows more and more narrow, until you come to the First Leger. An idyllic place to stop for a short rest… The hike continues as we proceed along the trail and cross another bridge to the Tschamin Springs, which transform within 10 meters from a dry brook bed into a lively alpine brook. Behind the springs, it is especially exciting to continue along the bed of the brook, which is usually dry. From here, one can reach the Right Leger in half an hour. The Right Leger is a beautiful outlook point and resting place with a view of the Grasleiten Towers and the Tschamin Peaks.
The return way proceeds along the same trail. Ambitious hikers can continue for another hour or so (another 500 altitude meters) until they come to the fork of the hiking trail to the Grasleiten Pass Hut and the Tierser Alpl.
Highlights of the hike: The view of the Tschamin Peaks and the walls of the Schlern on one side and the impressive towers and pinnacles of the Rose Garden on the other...
Technical information: Ascent of 450 altitude meters
Total hiking time: 4 - 5 hours
Level of difficulty: Easy hike, moderately good fitness required.
