Winter Activities

Mountains blanketed in snow flank crystal-clear Achensee - a winter fairy tale

"Even the longest journey begins with a first step!"

A gentle winter holiday, minus the crowds of tourists you encounter elsewhere, awaits you here at 4* Premium Apartment Resort PUREST on lake Achensee.

Snowshoeing and Ski Touring

With giant plate-like shoes on their feet, snowshoers explore remote romantic places and hike through valleys covered in a deep blanket of snow. Leaving from right outside our holiday apartments, an easy family tour will lead you to Unterautal.

Fans of ski touring are drawn high into the mountains where, after a challenging climb, they can slice back down to the valley across slopes of virgin powder. If you make it all the way to the summit, you will be rewarded by magnificent scenery stretching far into the distance! The view from the Rofan of the Achensee far below is simply breathtaking! But please remember: Before every ski tour, always check the snow and avalanche conditions in advance and ensure you have full safety equipment in your rucksack! Here at the Purest, we have snowshoes which you are welcome to borrow.
