The villages of Lofer, Unken, St. Martin and Weißbach in the Salzburg Saalachtal Valley, in the heart of the Pinzgau, are surrounded by ravines, gorges and roaring water.
Especially outdoor fans benefit here from a wide range of alternative sports like climbing, rafting, kayaking or canyoning in summer. There are of course also facilities for classic leisure activities. Summit victories on foot, by mountain bike and often by E-bike are celebrated here. The ski resort of the Salzburg Saalachtal Valley is highly popular. The small but beautiful family ski resorts was an insider tip among the locals for a long time. The 3-country leisure arena with Almenwelt Lofer, Steinplatte/Waidring, St. Johann/Tyrol, Heutal/Unken and Buchensteinwand/St. Jakob offers extensive winter pleasure.
But every destination also has its own characteristics which should be taken into consideration when planning your holiday. The Loferer Alm, for example, with 30 alpine huts in 1400 m above sea level is a true family paradise. In winter, Unken is an insider tip for cross-country skiers and ski tourers but especially for families. The village charm, rural life, wonderful tranquillity and nature dominate the holiday atmosphere of St. Martin, a suburb of Lofer. Waidring in the Pillerseetal Valley is located in the Kitzbühel Alps. This authentic Tyrolean holiday village with the mighty Steinplatte Massif represents the Tyrolean part of the 3-country leisure arena. Prehistoric animals beckon in summer and the Steinplatte - Winklmoosalm ski paradise in winter.
