... Snowshoeing in the winter world of Lake Millstätter See
Snow-covered landscapes, winter silence and a touch of adventure ... Snowshoeing is a nature experience in its purest form. While snowshoes were once known as a means of transport for hunters looking for game in hibernation, today they are popular with everyone. Numerous guided snowshoe hikes are offered every winter on the mountains around Lake Millstätter See.
5 rules for responsible snowshoeing or ski touring:
- Where available, stay on marked tours; be sure to follow signs as well as protected and restricted areas.
- Respect for wild animals: avoid feeding areas and retreat immediately and calmly if a wild animal is sighted.
- Avoid young tree crops (under three metres), the ski edges can cause great damage to the trees.
- Do not leave litter behind.
- Avoid noise.
