The snow shoe tour to the ‘weather cross’ above Obersee starts from the stop for the ski bus at Lackenstüberl. Continue to the border to South Tyrol, enjoying the wonderful view to Antholzersee – continue along the border area to the Heimkehrerkreuz and then to Oberseehütte – which tempts you in for refreshments. Refuelled, proceed then on the west banks of the lake back to the starting point.

Our tip: Do this tour as a Nature Watch Tour with a National Park ranger

A National Park Ranger will accompany you on a 4-hour tour, divulging what they know about the valley, the little and large inhabitants of the National Park and the history of the oldest National Park in Austria. Be whisked off into a realm of seclusion and tranquillity in Defereggental.
