An off-piste winter holiday in Lofer

A genuine winter fairy tale in the Salzburg region

Explore the romantic winter landscape of the Salzburg region in the Austrian Alps on snowshoes and when winter hiking, cross-country skiing, sledging or enjoying a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Experience the magic of the sparkling snow in the quiet countryside and breathe in the fresh mountain air while winter camping in Austria.

Cross-country skiing in Lofer and the surrounding area

Cross-country skiers can make their tracks on the 300m long valley trail or on the high trail Heutal / Winklmoos. When there’s plenty of snow, guests can start their cross-country skiing tour directly from Grubhof. Those who do not have cross-country skis have more than 100 km of perfectly prepared winter hiking trails in the immediate vicinity. After a trip to the nearby Maria Kirchental with the pilgrimage basillica in the hills above St Martin, guests can enjoy an excting sledge ride back into town.

Salzburg Saalachtal offers 40 km of cross-country trails for those who wish to test their sporting prowess, while soaking up the natural beauty of the surrounding scenery.

Count off your laps down in the valley or up on the high altitude cross-country ski trails with snow guaranteed on the Loferer Alm and the Unken Heutal. If that is not enough, you can let off steam at night on the illuminated cross-country ski trail in St. Martin.

Tobogganing in Lofer on the sledge and toboggan runs

A sledge ride is part of the magic of staying in a hut, 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 like apple strudel or boiled beef.

Those who love action-packed activities should try the 7km long sledge ride from the Loferer Alm. The more laid-back guests can enjoy a ride on a horse drawn sleigh, all wrapped up in warm coats.
