The first of five guided walks in and around the Gschnitz and Obernbergtal Valleys where we enjoy walking along winter paths and through forests under the impressive flanks of the rugged Stubai Mountains.
Our week includes five guided winter walks, plus one free day. From Trins itself walking paths ascend the Gschnitz valley to the hamlet of Feuerstein, and continue on to the head of the valley, under the impressive flanks of the rugged Stubai mountains. Other routes take us down-valley to Steinach and follow a forest road up to Nosslach hut to the south; or we may take a path up to the refreshment hut at Bergeralm from where there is an impressive panorama (and a cable-car to bring us back to the valley). A little further afield we walk in the Obernbergtal where we reach the delightful Obernberger See at 1590m. We also explore the high rolling plateau of Maria Waldrast just north of Trins. Our journey into the Schmirntal Valley, which rises east into the Zillertal Alps, offers other equally impressive panoramas and the chance to experience an exciting toboggan run. We may also choose to explore the high rolling plateau of Maria Waldrast (1700m), a unique mountain location above Trins, which is home to a former mediaeval Servite Monastery.
