The glistening snow-blanketed valley stretches as far as the eye can see. An eagle swoops over frozen mountain peaks. Hares leave their tracks in fresh snow. Every now and again the sound of jubilant children whizzing through this picture-perfect scene on their sledges breaks the peaceful silence. Winter in SalzburgerLand exudes a magic charm and you’ll be hard pressed to find anybody who doesn’t fall under its spell.
It’s not just the breath-taking snow-swept beauty of this winter wonderland that makes this time of the year so exceptional; there are also countless things that you can experience out and about in the great outdoors.
As soon as the days shorten and the very first snow flakes fall from the sky and settle over mountains and valleys, you just know that wonderful wintertime has arrived. SalzburgerLand is world-renowned for its perfectly prepared pistes and the unrivalled fun on the slopes.
However, there’s still just as much action-packed fun to be had in the fresh air far away from the ski regions. Families can have the time of their lives pulling their sledge up to the top of the mountain, stopping off to warm up with a hot drink at the top, before whooshing back down to the valley below. Sledging offers guaranteed enjoyment for young and old.
Adrenalin junkies and those who like to spice up their holidays with a bit of action will be delighted by the array of the hottest new adventure sports on offer in this region. Have you ever leant into a curve on a snow bike or been carried along by the wind on a snow kite? Or, have you ever scaled the dizzy heights of a thickly iced waterfall? You’ll be sure to get your fill of adventure from all the offerings in this region.
If you’re still after an active winter but don’t quite crave that same adrenaline kick, winter hiking and snowshoe walking offer up just as much fun, enjoyment and satisfaction, not least because you’ll experience unforgettable winter scenery, plants and flora along the way.
Whether you’re on the search of action away from the slopes, are looking for some rest and relaxation or are just after some family fun in the snow, in SalzburgerLand you will find everything you desire.
