LEISURE ACTIVITIES FOR YOUR WINTER HOLIDAY IN LOFER
WINTER FUN IN THE SAALACHTAL VALLEY
CENTRALLY LOCATED IN THE BORDER TRIANGLE BETWEEN SALZBURG – TYROL – BAVARIA, YOU WILL FIND THE SALZBURG SAALACHTAL VALLEY
Fun for the whole family is guaranteed during your skiing holiday in Lofer. Perfectly groomed pistes or boundless pleasure in the powder snow off piste - take your pick! The ski regions of the Loferer Almenwelt and Heutal Unken offer dream piste descents in all degrees of difficulty, as well as untouched powder snow for freeriders.
In winter, fun in the snow is naturally the highlight, and there is certainly something for everyone
Try one of the numerous cross-country skiing trails during your cross-country skiing holiday in Lofer. A total of approx. 80 km of perfectly groomed trails lead through valleys, forests and Alpine pastures, allowing you to glide through the scenic landscape of the Saalachtal Valley. The Heutal at an altitude of 1000 metres is perfect for Nordic-style tours.
In the Salzburg Saalachtal Valley, you can choose from 4 toboggan runs for your sledding fun:
- Maria Kirchental toboggan run: This 2.1 km natural toboggan run is floodlit every Tuesday evening from 8 pm.
- Knappenstadl toboggan run: Floodlit natural toboggan run, 1.5 km of guaranteed fun back down the valley into Lofer
- Hochalm in Unken toboggan run: Every Friday at 8:45 pm, there is a torchlit hike, followed by mulled wine and tobogganing
- Weißbach toboggan run: the 1.8 km toboggan run is floodlit every night until midnight. Hut evening with live music every Friday in the Gasthof Oberweißbach
WINTER HIKES AND SNOWSHOE TOURS
Whether you fancy a winter hike on groomed trails, or prefer to strap on a pair of snowshoes and tramp through untouched powder snow, the experience is unique and recommended for those who wish to keep both legs firmly on the ground. Neither requires prior knowledge, and both are suitable for all ages, offering a romantic alternative to skiing and cross-country skiing. Cosy huts along the way invite you to stop off and recharge your batteries.
