Walking in a Winter Wonderland: No fewer than 80 km of groomed hiking trails await you in the Stubai Valley! The off-road variety of hiking through the glittering, snow-covered landscape is enjoying ever greater popularity, namely snowshoeing. A short introductory lesson is all that is necessary before you’re ready to set off – immerse yourself in the beauty of pristine natural surroundings and savour the unique experience of solitude and a silence that awakes all your senses. A map to take with you is available from the Tourism Association Office.
Tobogganing is a truly exhilarating sport! Sitting just a few centimetres off the ground, you feel even the smallest dip, the speed feels faster than it really is. It’s a rally on two runners and, thanks to the cosy mountain huts both at the start and at the end of most toboggan runs, the social, convivial aspect is also part and parcel of the whole experience. The Stubai Valley boasts no fewer than 12 toboggan runs, including the two longest in the Tyrol: each of the two Elfer-runs covers a distance of 8 km! 4 of the region’s runs are suitable for night-time tobogganing.
62 kilometres of cross-country ski trails to suit every taste: Sun-drenched valley circuits, high-altitude trails at elevations of over 2,600 metres, floodlit night-time trails, cross-country ski schools, classic-style tracks, skating-style tracks – the Stubai Valley has long-since become a popular venue for Nordic sports enthusiasts too.
Ice climbing offers one of the ultimate challenges for serious winter sport enthusiasts - but it is a challenge that is very often not possible since, even in high-altitude alpine terrain, there is no guarantee of waterfalls freezing.

Natural ice climbing routes can also be found: Grawa waterfall and Pinnistal water fall – but these are, of course, not guaranteed Natürliche Eiskletter-Routen sind ebenfalls zu finden: Grawa-Fall und Pinnistalfall. If you’d prefer to try your hand at indoor climbing, then Fulpmes boasts a top-class sport climbing hall with 30 routes covering levels of difficulty IV to X
Fulpmes ice skating arena, Neustift ice rink, natural ice-skating pond in Mieders, natural ice-skating pond in Schönberg. And it wouldn’t be Tyrol without the alpine variety of curling, the popular sport of "Eisstockschiessen."
The ultimate tip for guests who want to “fly high” – take to the skies! The Stubai Valley and, in particular, the 11-er mountain are widely-known among “flying” enthusiasts. But if you, yourself, are not in possession of a pilot licence, you can still enjoy this unique experience by booking a tandem flight or taking part in a taster cours
