Snow Shoe Hike to the Kandleralm

This tour begins at the Tourist Information Office in Brixen im Thale.  Walking to the left we set off in the direction of the Erlensee Lake, cross the bridge at the playground, keep to the right and follow the Winter hiking route as far as the junction for Kandleralm.  We hike uphill along the Kandleralm Winter hiking route and after approx. 50m cross another bridge and follow the toboggan/Winter hiking route to the Kandleralm (an opportunity to drop in for refreshments and enjoy a magnificent panorama). Then, we cross the Kandleralm ski slope, and continue along the ski track until the turn-off (see the Summer signposts).  There we remain to the left as we pass the Rechentalalm, follow the edge of the forest until some steps to our left take us over the fence.  Continue downhill along the natural winding track through the forest until we reach the Brixenbachalm Winter hiking route from where there are three options: 1) continue in the direction of Brixenbachalm (opportunity to call in for refreshements) then follow the “Stations of the Cross” route back to Brixen. 2) continue in the direction of Brixenbachalm and after an extensive stop-off, return with a toboggan or 3) continue immediately along the Winter hiking path to Brixen im Thale.
