As soon as the sun shines through the window in the morning and the high-rising, craggy rock giants come into view, a lust for hiking fills the air. The Home of Lässig is one of Austria’s best hiking regions with over 400 km of hiking trails leading through the heart of glorious meadows, and across rocks, mountains and valleys.
The many hiking trails in Saalbach offer mild to challenging activity with stunning views and several great rest stops. And the AlpenParks Chalet & Apartment Steve Lodge is situated in the centre of this hiking paradise!
As soon as the day breaks the summer cable cars get moving. The cable cars and hiking busses are the perfect transport system to experience the best tours in Saalbach Hinterglemm, Zell am See-Kaprun and Viehhofen. A hiking holiday in Saalbach is full of active variety. Easy-going valley walks – the Lake Zell promenade is always a highlight – meet more challenging tours to famous alps, with the smell of fresh herbs and genuine culinary specialties from the Pinzgau region leading the way. Experienced mountain hikers head for the summit cross. The high-alpine hikes are challenging, but the views of the Pinzgau grass mountains, the Hohe Tauern and the Kitzbühel Alps are a dream come true.
Here are some highlights among the seemingly unlimited tour options around the AlpenParks Steve Lodge that should be part of every hiking holiday:
