Mountain holidays in the Großarltal Valley. Whether spring awakening, alpine pasture summer, farmers‘ autumn or fairy tale skiing holiday - the “Valley of the Alpine Pastures“ invites 365 days a year.
The Großarltal is located in the south of the Federal State of Salzburg. It is also known as the “Valley of the Alpine Pastures” because of its many serviced huts. There are 40 serviced alpine pastures with and without cattle located between 1.000 and 2.000 metres above sea level. This is one of the reasons why the Großarltal Valley is a popular hiking region between gentle alpine pasture landscapes and grass hills which can stretch up to 2.424 altitude metres. Around 400 km of signposted hiking trails, even reaching the Hohe Tauern National Park, are waiting to be explored. But there is even more to be discovered; exciting climbing routes, mountain bike tracks, tennis courts, golf courses or Nordic Walking tours for example.
Pure fun is guaranteed on a skiing holiday in the Großarltal Valley! The ski swing Dorfgastein-Großarl offers an 80-kilometres network of well-groomed pistes and a snow park for freeskiers and snowboarders in winter. But that’s not all: The ski resort is situated in Austria’s largest "Ski amadé" ski region, thus the Großarltal Valley is the gate to 760 kilometres of pistes! To discover this ski world, you need just one ski pass. Cross-country skiers find a total of approx. 25 kilometres of cross-country ski tracks in the Großartal Valley, for example the Hüttschlag and the Grossarl cross-country tracks. Anyone who wishes to enjoy the snow-covered winter landscape away from the ski circus can go on snowshoe hiking tours. Guided fairy tale hiking tours through the wintry forest are perfect for families - pure slowing down. You return to your Almliesl holiday home after an active day in the snow.
