Outdoor Adventures: Springtime at the Hotel Bergland in Sölden

Spring is a magical time of year in Sölden and the Ötztal Valley. While skiers and snowboarders enjoy warm sunshine and perfect snow in the resorts on the Rettenbachferner and Tiefenbachferner glaciers, further down in the valley the snow has melted and it is time for hiking, biking and golf.

The Hotel Bergland in Sölden is the ideal basecamp for exploring this beautiful region. As well as skiing, hiking and biking, further popular spring activities include Thai yoga in the heart of the Ötztal Alps.

Sigi is a multiple world champion in powder skiing and an expert when it comes to backcountry adventures. He also happens to be your host at the Hotel Bergland!

Ski & Golf: The Perfect Combination in Spring

Spring is the perfect time of year to combine two great sports: skiing and golf. Grab your skis in the morning and head out onto the slopes for a spot of spring skiing in the sunshine, then return to the hotel for a shower and a rest before teeing off in front of the stunning mountain landscape in the afternoon.

The 27-hole course at the nearby Mieming Plateau is open from late March until late November. Spring is the best time of year for golf in Tyrol. Other activities include mountainbiking, electric bike rides and roadbike rides as well as hiking.
