Explore the mountains and valleys by foot
The landscape is covered beneath a thick layer of snow, just as if it would be wrapped in soft cotton. The snow makes the scenery appear more peaceful, peacefuly but not lonely. Within the covered trees you may hear the birds twitter, the Lech river flows with relaxation peacefully through the valley and a squirrel delightfully jumps through a firtree on the search of its hidden food treasures.
Explore Lech and its surrounding valleys and mountaintops from a different point of view.
