BACH IN THE LECHTAL

Discover a Tirolean romantic white wilderness...

Austria knows how to do winter – fir trees heavy with snow, picture- postcard alpine villages, log fires and glühwein. The village of Bach, our base, combines undisturbed tranquillity with age-old customs.

In the northern Tirol, between the Lechtal Alps to the south and the Allgäu Alps to the north, the village lies at just over 1,000m, with the surrounding peaks rising to well over 2,500m. The many side valleys allow us access to excellent snowshoeing routes.

Walks take us through snow-covered meadows and spruce woods to the beautifully situated Wasealm Hut with views up the Grieß valley. On another day we head west to walk between the Kalbele and Körber Lakes – a walk described as “walking through hills covered in icing sugar”. The highlight of the week is a walk to the Bernardseck Hut, starting with a lift in a snow-grooming machine, then beyond towards the summit of the Muttekopf.

The hotel manager, an experienced snowshoe walking leader with an intimate knowledge of the area will normally lead most of our walks. We include all local transport for our snowshoeing programme.

The heady mix of clean air and beautiful mountains will, within a couple of days, cleanse both the body and mind. Back home you may experience ‘Mountain Withdrawal Symptoms’, guaranteed to draw you back time and time again.




WALKING GRADES


Grade 4 walks are normally full or half day walks which may involve cumulative ascent and/or descents of up to 600m. This holiday is from our Winter Spirit programme and will involve either a Winter Sport or Winter Walking.
