Guided winter hiking program

In the middle of the icy and deep black winter night you will experience special celestial events such as shooting star nights, super moons, etc., wrapped warmly in cuddly sheepskins... up close. In front of the crackling campfire we let the impressive starry world around the Milky Way take effect on us. The untouched high valley Pfundser Tschey is far away from brightly lit cities and light sources and is therefore ideal to marvel at the thousands of sparkling constellations under expert guidance.

Dates will follow!

We enjoy the fresh winter air and hike under the expert guidance of hiking guide Michaela, with snowshoes through our great nature to the most beautiful viewpoints of the surroundings.
