Cross Country Skiing
The right cross country tracks for both beginners and experts. Equipment can be rented next to the tracks in the specialised rental shop. A cross country skiing school is also located in Gnadenalm, offering courses for both beginners and advanced enthusiasts.
Horse Sleigh Rides
Enjoy the peace and romance on a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered winter landscape in Obertauern. The round trip takes about an hour and starts from the Gnadenalm back to the Hintergnadenalm. Then along the stream to the opposite side of the valley, through the mostly snow-covered winter forest and back to the Gnadenalm. You can end the journey in the cozy restaurant Gnadenalm, ideally, of course, with a wonderful fondue.
Sledge / Toboggan Riding
The toboggan run on the Gnadenalm is 1.5 km long. The natural toboggan run in Obertauern is floodlit every evening. You can enjoy the tobogganing fun all day. The toboggan run is open from 11.00AM. You do not need to have your own sledge, of course there is also a toboggan rental on the Gnadenalm. Unique is the Skidoo taxi that will take you to the top of the track.
Snow-shoeing is all about experiencing nature on silent feet. A gentle and comfortable way of exploring the pristine snowy landscapes. Almost silently you tread through the woods and snow fields whilst enjoying the winter mountains of Salzburger Land. Book our snowshoe tour (min. 5, max. 12 people).
