The region Saalfelden Leogang is the ideal vacation destination in winter to do sports, to exercise, to improve your fitness and to push yourself to your limits. Doesn't matter whether you like to ski on the perfectly groomed slopes of the ski circus or you prefer to put on your cross-country skies or like to do tobogganing - choose which ever activity you want and make your vacation unforgettable! Here are our tips for you.
Tobogganing at night at the Asitz mountain and the Biberg mountain
The illuminated toboggan runs at the Asitz mountain in Leogang and the Biberg mountain in Saalfelden are perfect for an adventurous trip. If you still have some energy left after an exhausting skiing day, you can ascent the mountain by foot and listen to the silence of the winter, have a look at the shining stars and enjoy good talks with your friends. However, you can also ascent by cable car or with the shuttle. Once you arrive at the top, you can enjoy a delicious meal and some good drinks, before you sleigh down the exciting toboggan run.
The most exciting skiing area in Austria
270 km of slopes and 70 lifts make every skier's heart beat faster! Large, wide and above all extremely diverse, the skicircus offers you the choice between perfectly groomed slopes, chilling and shredding in the Nitro Snow Park and a top freeride area.
Ascent high and glide down
Step by step you ascent the narrow path to reach the top of the mountain, through idyllic forests with glittering trees, past snowed in huts to places, where you get the feeling that no one has ever been here before. Of course, the ascent is exhausting, but it will be definitely worth it when you reach the top and can enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains and the valley; and the anticipation of gliding down the mountain through powder snow. Yeah!
The ideal place for winter sports: The Nordic Park
At the lake Ritzensee in Saalfelden you find the center for nordic sports, where you can do so many winter sports at such a small area. The offer ranges from perfectly groomed cross-country skiing courses - by the way, they are illuminated at night - and a natural ice skating rink to beautiful winter hiking trails. In Saalfelden Leogang you can definitely combine exercise and sport with your winter vacation.
Culinary delights on the mountain
Ranging from a tasty breakfast with an impressive view of the mountain range Leoganger Steinberge, and lunch with live music to a sundowner with a delicious cocktail, you can enjoy your time at one of the numerous ski huts. The food served is tremendously varied, like the region itself, so it is no surprise that you can order traditional dishes as well as sushi or burgers.
Saalfelden Leogang Card
The majority of accommodations in the region offer the Saalfelden Leogang Card for your stay, with which you have a lot of advantages and benefit from countless inclusive services and discounts. For example one free ascent and descent for those who like to leave their skies at home, free use of the cross-country skiing courses, free use of the ice skating rink and much more!
