Flying Fox XXL – the superlative steel rope slide

At a length of 1,600 metres, a height of 143 metres and a speed of 130 km/h, the Flying Fox XXL is one of the longest and fastest steel rope slides in the world! The flight from the Alpine pasture into the valley requires a little bravery, but perhaps you’d like to take it on together? You’ll be glad you did!

Panoramic views on the Saalachtaler Höhenweg trail

Starting from the mountain station of the Asitz Bergbahn cable car, there are two variants of the Saalachtaler Höhenweg trail that lead up to stunning panoramic viewpoints at a height of almost 2,000 metres without any significant ascents. When heading back down, you can take either the Saalfelden summer toboggan run or walk back into the valley via the Spielbergalmen Alpine pastures.
