Tour

The Schliersee region offers the perfect conditions for your snowshoe tour with Zipflbob descent.

You meet with your snowshoe guide and are first handed the equipment. After a short safety briefing, you strap on your snowshoes, attach the Zipflbob to your backpack, take the poles in your hand and make your way through the powder snow.off the beaten path, you make your way up to a small alpine pasture. Here we'll take a short break, where you can fortify yourself with the snack you've brought along.

Afterwards, we climb up to the preliminary destination of our snowshoe tour with Zipflbob: the Bodenschneidhaus. The innkeepers will be waiting for you at the hut with hearty, home-style cooking. There you can enjoy the view, the company, the warmth and the food. But the highlight of the tour is yet to come:

On your Zipflbobs, you'll make a rapid descent along the winding supply road into the valley. Which of you will be the fastest?

Contact us and we will plan a wonderful trip with you. Our team is looking forward to meeting you!

    Super day due to very good organisation.
    We liked everything... There were no problems at all with the booking. I would definitely recommend this offer, especially to those who enjoy hiking and nature and would like to try hiking with snowshoes.
    I think that especially young people (under 30) will enjoy the Zipfbob downhill.
