Winter holiday
in Kaprun

Kaprun in winter offers everything you would expect from a winter holiday. Alpine panorama, enormous snow security thanks to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area and plenty of leisure opportunities for skiers and non-skiers.

But the region also offers a variety of winter sports activities for everyone looking for a snow experience away from the pistes: from cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ski tours through snow-covered winter landscapes to tobogganing and ice sports on the natural ice surface of the frozen Zeller See.

The region Zell am See-Kaprun offers a lot of leisure opportunities:


Discover the region beyond the slopes and runs during a snowshoe hike – alone on snow-covered hiking trails or during a guided tour in the open country. Snowshoeing is as easy as pie and ideal for all ages. The family mountain Maiskogel is the perfect starting point for an impressive snowshoe hike through nature.

Winter hiking

Winter hiking is a one-of-a-kind nature experience in the valley or on the mountain. The primed winter hiking trails are the best way to explore the region on your own. What about a lap around Lake Zell or a walk alongside the Salzach river in Kaprun – countless options are waiting for you.

Cross-country skiing

Classic or skating, in the valley or up high – the region’s 55 km of runs promise a delightful natural experience with a breathtaking backdrop. Find the entrance to the network of runs only a few metres from AlpenParks Hotel Orgler Kaprun. The cross-country ski runs connect to the Pinzgau and Saalachtal network of runs with a total of 200 km – endless trails for enjoyment or training. Night owls, listen up: the Tauern SPA run is lit every day until 10 pm.

Ski touring

Ski touring or alpine touring is a trend sport that’s no longer a purely local thing. Through deeply snow-covered woods, across white mountain pastures up high onto the summit, and surfing into the valley through knee-deep powder – that’s as awesome as it gets! Beginners take their first steps on the slope on the Kitzsteinhorn or Maiskogel. The region even offers a slope exclusively groomed for ski touring, the Ronachkkopf. Find suitable equipment and expert mountain guides directly around of AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Orgler Kaprun.


Tobogganing is simply a part of a winter holiday in the Zell am See - Kaprun region. There are several toboggan runs in and around Kaprun. It’s possible to race down the run during daytime and even in the evening.

  • Tobogganing in Bruck an der Großglocknerstraße: 3 km toboggan run - illuminated at night until 24:00
  • Tobogganing in Bramberg at Wildkogel: the world’s longest floodlit sled run with 14 kilometres
