Winter wonderland Filzmoos with private guide


Enjoy the magic of a fairy-tale winter day in the Austrian Alps! A breathtaking winter scenery awaits you just outside the doors of the city of Salzburg. The best way to discover this wonderful winter world is by a journey through romantic snowy forests, mountains and fields on a sleigh drawn by horses. Leaving the busy life in the city behind, you will soon be enchanted by pure winter nature. The sleigh ride will start in the region of the Salzburg Alps, close to the charming mountain town Filzmoos, one hour south of the city of Salzburg. From there the way will lead to a famous mountain hut, called Hofalm, uphill-approx. one hour, followed by a rest of 1, 5 hours (for the horses and the people) and downhill approx. 45 minutes. After this the tour ends at your hotel in Salzburg city.

Itinerary

Leaving the city of Salzburg the tour leads southwards to Filzmoos in the wonderful Salzburg Alps after approx. 90 min. drive. Then you will get on the horse-drawn sleigh, which will take you up to the Hofalm, a real beautiful mountain hut, where Lunch is served. The rest will be for about 90 min. , after which the downhill sleigh ride will bring you back to the valley based station. From there the tour leads back to your hotel in Salzburg.
