Join me in this great 5-day program and let’s go snowshoeing to Lesachtal, an amazing valley in the Austrian Alps. We will explore the countryside, through snow-covered forest roads and hiking trails.

Lesachtal is located in the state of Carinthia in Austria. It’s a fantastic spot for winter activities. I love this valley, as it is still a pretty untouched natural area in the Alps.

Along these 5-day program we will be able to enjoy the fresh air and wilderness. Also, it’s a perfect opportunity for switching off from the city hurries and connecting with the peace of nature!

We will start our snowshoeing tours directly from our accommodation, the cozy Hepi Lodge, in Obergail. Besides, I will adapt our tour to the weather, snow and group conditions. You can check the tour itinerary below this text.

So, if you want to enjoy all the calm and nature of Lesachtal, contact me and let’s start planning your trip! I will be happy to guide you in this great guided snowshoeing tour. You can also check my 5-day ski touring program in Lesachtal!

I’m a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a nature lover. I was born in 1983 and I studied Cultural and social anthropology at the Vienna University.

Mountains, water, cultures have been always my passion. That’s why I’m a mountain, ski, canyoning and rafting guide, also a ski instructor and a snowboard enthusiast.
