Winter hikes and ski touring in East Tyrol
Impressive moments in untouched nature
St. Jakob in Defereggental is the starting point for numerous winter hikes, snowshoe hikes, and ski tours in East Tyrol. Surrounded by a landscape covered in deep snow you experience idyllic winter scenery straight out of a picture book. So pure, so untouched, and really close to nature!
You start the hikes or ski tours in East Tyrol right at the Jesacherhof hotel – either with a guide as part of our weekly programme or under your own steam, you leave your traces in the freshly fallen snow, inhale the fresh clear winter air, and are cast under a magic spell. Total tranquillity and peaceful harmony dominate here on the southern side of the Alpine main ridge.
Breathtaking panoramas await you during your winter and ski tours in East Tyrol! A fascinating spectacle that will totally captivate you. Ecki is a qualified ski guide and will be happy to accompany you on your tours!
Our hiking tip: snowshoe hiking through snowy forests and landscapes while watching wild animals – the start is at the Katzental bridge next to the hotel.
Our ski tour tip: from the Brunnalm skiing centre over the Jesacheralm to Langschneid at 2,688 metres above sea level with a panoramic view over the snow-covered three thousand metre peaks!
