Active Holidays in Salzburg
Sports for All Seasons in Grossarl
Skiing or Mountain biking, snowshoeing or hiking – in Grossarl the summer is just as active as the winter. In winter the gondola that will take you to the ski slopes is just steps away. In summer the snow-covered ridges melt down to soft, green alpine pastures and meadows. The alpine summer means the start of the hiking season – just in time for your active holiday in Salzburg!
Staying active in the fresh mountain air is particularly good for your health. Movement at this high altitude strengthens your heart and improves circulation. Regardless of the summer or winter sport you like best, you’ll perform it at a higher level than ever – literally. A holiday in Grossarl is the perfect choice as this beautiful destination lies at 920 m above sea level.
A Sport-Filled Summer Holiday in the Salzburger Land
For good reason the summers in the Salzburger Land are called alpine summers and the Grossarl Valley is called the “Valley of Alpine Pastures”. Around 40 traditional alpine chalets are still in operation and await trekkers and hikers. It’s no wonder then that the number one summer sport in Grossarl is hiking. Interested in a heart-stopping, fast descent on a mountain bike? The Grossarl Valley has the trails for you. At Hotel Edelweiss we have the most modern mountain bikes available for you to borrow – for free! There’s a never-ending list of activities for you to try on your active holiday in Salzburg.
Grossarl: A Winter Wonderland
The winter season is when Grossarl sheds its coat of green and becomes a world-renowned ski region– boasting 80km of groomed slopes in the snow-sure Alps. The Grossarl ski area belongs to the largest ski region in Austria: Ski Amadé. The benefit of being our guest: you can’t get any closer to the slopes than at Hotel Edelweiss. Looking for something a bit less action-packed than a day on the slopes during your winter holiday? The beautiful, snow-covered mountains aren’t just for skiers. Try your hand at tobogganing, cross-country skiing or winter hiking and still have a chance to see Grossarl from its wintry side.
