Snowshoeing and winter trekking

Savour a holiday at one with nature with all your senses; breath in a lungful of pure mountain air and explore the nature surrounding Hotel Cappella. Trudging through snowy landscapes in the picturesque Stubai valley is a fantastic way to recharge during a winter holiday. Besides, snow is guaranteed and the area offers top conditions for long, wholesome treks or snowshoe hikes. As you contemplate the beauty of nature, all worries fade away and give way to a soul-soothing sense of belonging.


There are over 80 km of well-maintained hiking trails in the Stubai valley, with cosy huts where you are welcome to enjoy a tasty stopover. Snowshoers are equally spoilt for choice, with trails at 1,600 to 1,800 m of altitudes ranging from leisurely jaunts to challenging routes and romantic moonlight tours!

Health is worth more than learning.
