Ice climbing for beginners

Would you like to venture the first climbing attempts in glacial ice? Then book an ice climbing course at the mountaineering school in Kühtai.The sessions last 2 to 6 days and equipment can be rented on site. Incidentally, the DAV Summit Club offers climbing trips to Praxmar several times during the winter.

Off to Austria for ice climbing

Your expeditions into the ice in the Sellrain Valley start best from Alpengasthof Praxmar. Whether you are looking for a cosy hotel room or a spacious holiday apartment, the Melmer family looks forward to your non-binding request.




Snowshoeing in Tyrol

Experience the Sellrain Valley in an entirely new way

Hiking through white tranquillity, pristine powder snow and glistening landscapes: snowshoeing gives you back the peace and quiet which is often lost in hectic everyday life, and strengthens your body and soul.

And it’s very simple: you only need sturdy shoes and snowshoes, which you can rent for 11 euros. The Melmer family from Alpengasthof Praxmar will gladly help you here.

Winter hiking in the Sellrain Valley

Would you prefer to walk on well-cleared hiking trails? Then we recommend walking along the forest trail to Lüsens or along the sledding trail towards Schafalm. A particularly idyllic winter hiking trail leads up towards Koglalm. Have fun!

And what is there to do after snowshoeing?

After a day in the fresh, cold air there is nothing nicer than warming up in a sauna or infrared cabin. And after that we will pamper you with regional delicacies in the cosy “Tyrolean Room” at Alpengasthof Praxmar. Don’t miss out on this. Reserve your room now!
