Away from the Piste

Cross-country skiing, winter hiking, ski touring and much more

The sunniest region in Austria, home to four surrounding ski areas, doesn't merely invite you to go skiing. With its seven side valleys, Salzburger Lungau is also an El Dorado for skitourers.

A wide-ranging and clearly marked network of winter hiking paths invites experienced hikers, walkers, nature lovers and happiness seekers to set out on unforgettable winter hikes and snowshoeing expeditions. In addition to that, fans of cross-country skiing (classic or skating technique) will be greeted by roughly 150 km of XC trails.

"If you spend your winter days here at elevations of at least 1000 meters, you quickly sense how the naturalness drives away your stress and leaves you with a sense of deep calm."
