Snowshoe hikes in Passo Resia

The Passo Resia holiday area offers a dense network of trails for snowshoeing: discover snowy landscapes and reach typical alpine huts open even in winter, such as a nice hike around Lake Resia or Lake S. Valentino, or an easy walk from Resia to the Hofschank Tenders. Very popular for snowshoeing is the Vallelunga located at the foot of the Ötztal Alps.

The easiest walks are suitable for the whole family, while the more experienced can undertake panoramic hikes in the high mountains with alpine guides.

Before leaving for mountain excursions it is always advisable to consult the avalanche bulletin and know your abilities and fitness level.

In the Passo Resia area there are several sports shops and ski rentals where you can rent snowshoes.
