Mild winter on the Lake Achensee

Winter hiking
The journey is the reward– this traditional proverb could not be more suitable to describe the special meaning of a winter hiking. The 150 km long well-kept winter trails are the perfect place if you want to enjoy the breathtaking natural scenery of the Achensee region. The hiking program is so rich that a holiday is not sufficient to explore all winter hiking routes.

Skiing tours
Snowshoeing is ideal to discover pure and untouched winter landscapes. If you wish to learn more about nature or to feel safer during a tour, you can go on a journey of exploration together with a qualified local mountain guide.

Horse-drawn sleigh rides
A horse-drawn sleigh ride is integral part of a romantic winter holiday. And if the sleighs are drawn by noble Lipizzaner fun is guaranteed for the young and the young at heart!

Tobogganing has experienced a successful come-back since a couple of years. Nowadays the Achensee region offers seven natural toboggan runs of different lengths - 1.5 to 3.5 km - for family-friendly or more challenging rides. The ones who want to reach lofty heights in an easy and comfortable way can use the ski lift in Achenkirch or the toboggan express in Pertisau. Tobogganing by night is a cult. The meeting point is in Achenkirch on Wednesdays. The other four toboggan runs are illuminated at night during the whole week.
