Summer in Großarltal in the valley of the alpine huts, that’s nature at its purest from sunrise to sunset.
40 cosy alpine huts await you in Großarl, in the midst of untouched nature. Hike along well marked trails, over blossoming alpine fields, along thunderous waterfalls, tosende crystal clear mountain lakes, right up to the mountain peaks with endless views. A hiking bus takes you to or from the hiking tours. Hike to your heart’s content. In spring to the blossoming alpine roses, in summer were berries and mushrooms grow, right into late autumn were the first mountain peaks a covered in a white veil.
Those particularly sporty can rent a mountain bike in Hotel Kathrin free of charge, and cycle over 11.000 meters in altitude difference, on various levels of difficulty. On the interactive hiking card you can plan your hiking tours even before you arrive. For those that don’t want to climb all that high, there’s the chapel trail which stretches out over 15 km on a flat surface. Other activities that the beautiful Großarl in Salzburg has to offer:
Salzburger alp trail, trekking and Nordic walking, mountain climbing, beach volleyball, tennis, mini gold, heated outdoor swimming pool and cable cars.
Down in the valley its already summer, and in the mountains with its patches of snow, spring is still present, with its twin flowers and the stalk less gentiana. Enjoy the vibrant colours during the alpine rose weeks from mid June to mid July.
Pack your rucksack and experience an unforgettable overnight in an alpine hut. An evening in the hut with home-made products, a night were the wind softly blows outside the hut, an alp breakfast at sunrise – that’s hiking and trekking at its best
