The popular Sellrainer Hüttenrunde is a special experience in winter. With snowshoes we go on medium - difficult routes in eight days through the Sellrainer mountains. About half an hour by car from Innsbruck and about 1 - 1.5 hours away from the big cities of the Alpine foothills are the mountains of the Sellrain. They are bordered by the Inn valley in the north, the Ötz valley in the west and the Wipp and Stuba valley in the east. In the south, the Stubai and Ötztäler Alps provide a magnificent backdrop.

Description

The villages of Sellrain, Gries, Kühtai and St.

Sigmund belong to the Sellrain.

The largest side valley is the Lüsenstal, which branches off south at Gries, with Juifenau, Narötz, Praxmar and Lüsens.

From St.

Sigmund the road leads over the Kühtaisattel (2020 m) into the Ötztal valley.

The numerous small, quiet side valleys of the Sellrain, framed by chains of peaks up to three thousand metres high, are particularly attractive.

A lonely landscape without lifts, cars and noise - instead nature, silence and pure relaxation.

Above all, of course, in the two protected areas of the Sellrain: in the quiet area of the Stubai Alps and in the quiet area of Kalkkögel with its unmistakable mountain peaks reminiscent of the Dolomites.

The resting areas were designated in the 1980s in order to curb the development of lifts and roads in the Alpine region.

In this wild natural landscape, ibex and chamois live in winter.

You can only see the shy inhabitants of the mountain wilderness with a lot of patience, a good power of observation and a big portion of luck! Snowshoe mountaineers or ski tourers are off the beaten track to lonely peaks in the Sellrain.
