Tobogganing in Lofer on the sledge and toboggan runs
A sledge ride is part of the magic of a mountain holiday, whether in sunlight or under the stars, romantic or action-packed. We recommend that romantics go up to Maria Kirchental. Next to the lovely baroque pilgrimage basilica there is a cosy inn with irresistible regional specialties.
Those who love action-packed activities should try the 7km long sledge ride from the Loferer Alm. Those wanting a more laid-back experience can enjoy a ride on a horse drawn sleigh, all wrapped up in warm coats.
