BERGaktiv snowshoe-hiking program 2020/21

On tour with local guides

BERGaktiv Großes Walsertal: hiking guides from Großes Walsertal and Damüls. Since the summer of 2008, they have been offering a summer hiking program from May to the end of October with full and half-day hikes, in July and August even daily from Monday to Friday and sometimes also on the weekends. With the winter and snowshoe hiking program, the winter hiking guides invite you to snowshoe hikes from Christmas to Easter.

The team of certified Vorarlberg hiking guides includes a forest pedagogue, environmental and adventure pedagogue and a botanist. What they all have in common is their love for their home and their extensive knowledge of the history and culture of this region. The offer is accordingly varied. See for yourself!
