Winter activities away from the slopes
Leogang in winter has also got plenty more to offer besides the ski slopes. How about some group tobogganing? Is there any better conclusion to day on your skis than sitting down together for a little mulled wine and a hearty snack?
- Biberg Saalfelden: The natural toboggan run on Biberg in Saalfelden has been extended from 3 km to an unbelievable 6 km! It is not only getting down into the valley that is an adventure - going uphill on skidoos or tractors is also plenty of fun!
- Asitz Leogang: As they say: “Cable car up - toboggan down”. Leo’s Kufengaudi opens its doors between midday and 4pm and twice a week in the evenings for an exciting toboggan tour.
Flying Fox in the winter
The ride is still just as safe in the winter! At the mid-way station of the Astitzbahn cable car you will find something that is exhilarating and unique: The 1,600 m long Flying Fox XXL travels at speeds of up to 130 km/h and is one of the fastest and longest steel ziplines in the world. Those brave enough will race at high speeds from as high up as 140 metres down into the valley - pure adrenaline but scrupulously safe.
Trek along kilometres of well-tended winter trails through stunning nature and experience the quieter side of winter. Or stomp over pristine snowfields and enjoy the splendid beauty of a winter’s day during your holiday in Leogang/Saalfelden. Once a week you will have the opportunity to participate in a introductory course at the Deisenberger ski school.
The leisure centre at Zell am See has an enticing ice rink... With a little luck you may be able to watch some top European ice hockey teams practice for a friendly or a big match. Ice shoes and skates available for hire. The natural ice rink of Ritzensee is a frozen lake the draws many ice skaters from far and wide.
Horse-drawn sleigh ride
The cold, clear winter air, rosy cheeks and a thick blanket of snow - what could be more romantic than a horse-drawn sleigh ride? Be taken through the magical mountain world cuddled up under a blanket by two panting steeds.
We will gladly organise a horse-drawn sleigh ride in our wonderful region of Saalfelden-Leogang upon request.
