Your Winter Holiday in Wagrain
Sometimes gentle, sometimes vigorous – exploring nature in Salzburger Land
Away from the pistes, too, there are countless ways to enjoy the magical mountain world which surrounds Wagrain. If you prefer something more peaceful, you will find a variety of wonderful recreational opportunities here during your winter holidays. Cross-country skiing, winter hikes and snowshoeing, or perhaps a romantic ride on a horse-drawn sleigh – completely alone, just yourselves and nature. Simply wonderful! That said, action-lovers also discover their own piece of heaven here, too. Hurtle on a sled down towards the valley, celebrate a summit conquest on touring skis, or go paragliding and take in the world from a bird’s-eye perspective. The free ski-bus service will take you to many of your outdoor winter activities – and the bus stop is only a few meters from your 4-star Hotel Wagrainerhof.
Cross-Country Skiing: classic & skating technique
In Wagrain, you will be greeted by pure cross-country enjoyment amid snow-covered winter landscapes. On a trail network extending some 220 km, you can give free rein to your XCing passion. And once your day of sports is over, how about finding the peaceful relaxation you long for in the wellness area at Hotel Wagrainerhof.
