Snow-covered mountains boasting a total of 58 km of groomed trails which nicely frame the largest lake in Tyrol, five picturesque mountain villages, 150 km of winter-hiking trails and 200 km of cross-country-ski-runs are the fun-facts for a great winter holiday at the Achensee (Lake Achen).
But the holiday region Achensee has more to offer! Cross-country skiers for instance have a practicing cross-country trail as well as a dog-cross-country trail at their disposal. And Achensee is definitely up to any innovative winter-sports-activity such as the snowbike.
