Winter ActivitiesSnowy pleasures, fabulous winter landscapes
In addition to all the fun on the slopes, there is a whole range of activities in the magnificent natural surroundings that you can experience without the need for skis! Allow yourself to be swept away by the enchanting ambience of this magical winter wonderland...
From December to April, there are free guided winter hikes every Tuesday in Saalbach and every Thursday in Hinterglemm.
Meeting point: every Tuesday at 10 hrs at the Saalbach Tourist Office and every Thursday at 10 hrs at the Hinterglemm Tourist Office. The walk takes approx. 3 hours, it is not necessary to register.
Snowshoe tours take place in backcountry terrain - and offer a truly unique experience of nature. Different weather conditions alter the terrain daily, so hikers must assume responsibility for themselves, or join one of the many guided tours. Snowshoes are available to hire from one of the local sport shops.
Potential routes include
- Lengau - Lindlingalm, along the right banks of the Saalach, close to the winter hiking and cross-country trail
- Reiterkogel middle station, above the cross-country ski trail towards the Rosswald Hut
A toboggan ride is fun for people of all ages - and you can go as fast or as slow as you like! Toboggans are of course available to hire...
