Winter in Sölktäler Nature Park

Sedate peace and quiet in the snow away from the crowds

Everything turns silent and sedate in Sölktäler Nature Park with the arrival of the first snow. Now is the perfect time for ski tours, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Untouched nature, guaranteed snow and no hustle and bustle are what distinguish the region: enjoy a particularly beautiful corner of the Schladming-Dachstein holiday region in the Sölktal valley with a whole range of various winter activities.

Paradise for ski tourers

Ski tourers find stunning options for ski tours in quiet nature far away from any mass tourism in Sölktäler Nature Park. Untouched winter scenery without any ski lifts or slopes await you on 11 eco-friendly ski tour options in total.

Cross-country skiing

Two cross-country trails lead through the Sölktal valleys and invite you to enjoy a healthy endurance sport in the clear winter air. You can find one trail in St. Nikolai, the other in Stein an der Enns. More information/hiking maps are available from the nature park’s information office in Stein. 

Snowshoeing and winter hikes

Advancing in deep snow on large soles and climbing up to the most beautiful viewing points: take part in a guided snowshoe hike, for example to the Gumpenalm, or explore the landscape on your own as an experienced snowshoer. Winter hikers without snow shoes can find bliss in the snow on approx. 25 km of cleared winter hiking trails.

Activities for families

Many children just can’t get enough of the snow. Enjoy time together as a family in the snowy mountain village of St. Nikolai. You can experience a particularly romantic dream winter when you take a seat on a horse-drawn sleigh. A torchlight hike at dusk to the former lime kiln with a hearty snack and mulled wine is also a great experience for the whole family. Or why not have a go at building an igloo.

Skiing at the Stockerfeld lift

The Stockerfeld lift in the village of Mössna is ideal for teaching children how to ski or practising as a beginner.
