Ski tours

The Karwendel and Rofan mountains provide countless opportunities for ski tours. This region is also practically perfect for exploring areas on skis that you could otherwise only reach in summer. The proximity to the mountains, the gentle, constant movement and the wonderful deep-snow ski runs turn this sport into a very special experience. Here in the mountains around Lake Achensee, there are, once again, plenty of options for both beginners and experienced skiers.

You can find detailed information about the ski tours in the Achensee ski tour map


Winter hiking and snowshoe hiking

In addition to the slopes and skiing trails, there are, of course, plenty of leisurely ways to enjoy winter in the Achensee region. The Karwendel valleys are ideal for long winter hikes and snowshoe hikes. There are also guided winter hikes organised by the hotel and the local tourist association


Ice-skating, curling and snow-kiting

Ice-skating & curling
In Achenkirch, Wiesing and Pertisau, there are plenty of opportunities to go ice-skating and curling.

In winter, too, the lake is a key source of holiday fun and is often used for the trendy sport of snow-kiting.

Since 2010, it has even had its own licensed snow-kiting school. On taster courses or professional weekends, anyone aged seven or over can try their hand at snow-kiting or improve their skills. Add a bit of variety to your holiday and try something new. Skiing or snowboarding experience is required for this sport.
