6-day snowshoe hike in Matrei in Oristtol

6-day snowshoe hike in Matrei in Oristtol | undefined

Enjoy a 6-day snowshoeing trip around the stunning High Tauern in Matrei in Oristtol, Austrian Alps with a certified mountain guide.


6 Days





Visit Matrei in Osttirol to be mesmerised by green pastures and icy peaks! I will test your stamina through the heart of the High Tauern, in Austria, among the Virgen, Kals and Prägraten valleys.

For this 6-day trip, you should need a good physical shape and some prior experience in snowshoeing. The first day, we will meet to introduce each other and check your equipment. From the second to the sixth day, we will be jumping from the scenic rural area of Matrei to the emerald unspoiled curves of the Virgen valley hills. Our accommodation will be in cozy huts at high altitude in the Alps.

Among the compelling views and places to explore, the Gschlöss valley stands out behind the imposing Venedigier glacier, considered the favorite among snowshoeing hikers because of its scenery and crystal-clear water. We will also have time to admire the solitude and grandeur of the Grossvenediger peak (11,998 ft/3656 m)– the highest point of the region.

If snowshoeing on virgin mountain tracks is your thing, consider yourself invited to this trip in Matrei in Oristtol! Send your request and book the program.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
