Winter hiking in the AVIVA.
Impressions in blue white.

Here the skies, there the landscape, nature and a pure winter wonder world. As well as the breath-taking AVIVA views to the Alpine chain, in front of the hazy, hilly landscape of the Mühlviertel... Dream of hiking through this magical land, letting your gaze roam, enjoying the glistening and sparkle of the snow crystals and seeing little clouds emerge in the clear air?

Have a yearning for tranquillity and genuine relaxation, broken only by the sound of your winter boots on the snowy underfoot conditions? Far removed from the marathon queues at the ski lifts and the power tourism of the winter ski areas? Then winter hiking in the AVIVA is the very thing for you!

The superb deep snow-covered natural surroundings of our hotel are inspiring and tempt you to enjoy some fantastic winter hikes through the forests and across the meadows. Our own tracked „Hand auf´s Herz“ winter hiking trail which is 6 km in length takes you to our sister hotel, the BERGERGUT, and back again. Maybe you’d enjoy a refreshment stop for a cappuccino or some spiced mulled cider? Or finish off in the AVIVA Alm with some coffee and cake or a hearty snack?

Enjoy the impressive view to the Alpine chain, and experience the gentle side of winter. Thanks to the continual movement out in the fresh air, with or without snow shoes, whatever you prefer, you’ll not get cold even during extended winter hiking tours. Regular tours with our fitness trainers connect you to the surrounding area, as do the many and varied hiking trails and tours. Fancy winter hiking in the AVIVA?

We invite you to enjoy fantastically relaxing days with us ..and above all else, after an extensive winter hike there is nothing nicer than diving into the 2000m 2 AVIVA SPA and really relaxing, sweating it all out in the sauna or letting your soul roam free during a relaxing massage!

Enjoy the natural surroundings...
