You love extraordinary, original nature experiences? Then, you absolutely should try snowshoeing. Discover nature with snowshoes on your feet: Enjoy the peaceful and quiet winter landscape at an altitude of 2000 meters, discover untouched nature and immerse yourself in a magic winter wonderland far away from any hustle and bustle. Our ancestors used snowshoes to be able to reach the far away spots where the deer was fed or to get to remote mountain huts. Snowshoes used to be an often vital means of locomotion in regions with lots of snow.  Today, they are a popular way to go hiking in the winter. Enjoy the guided snowshoeing tours on the 2000 meters high Krippenstein on your winter holiday in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.
