One of the most charming winter hikes at Lake Achensee leads into the quiet Oberautal Valley. The hike leads along the shore of the lake with its snow crystals and dazzling reflections of the mountains. From the Alpen Caravanpark Achensee there are just a few kilometres into the valley, where if you are lucky you may even see chamoix foraging for food.
