Hiking and Mountain Climbing
Imposing Gorges, picturesque Alms and proud Mountain Peaks
High looming, craggy limestone towers, in some places bizarrely pierced by torrential mountain water, surrounded by lush green alpine meadows as though they were a protective coat – so breathtakingly beautiful is the Salzburger Saalachtal.
There are more than 400 km of marked hiking paths on the forested slopes, the craggy peaks and in the gorges of the Loferer, Reiter and Leoganger Steinberge. The marked hiking routes in the Almenwelt Lofer and in Heutal, not only lead to breathtaking vantage points and to the centre of the fascinating alpine habitat for plants and animals, but also to traditional alm huts, which offer the hungry hiker delicious regional specialities.
Guided Hikes in Salzburger Saalachtal
Our hiking guide, Waltraud, is out and about on the alms and mountains in the Salzburger Saalachtal from June to September. Join Waltraud on one of her guided tours. In addition, the Naturpark Weißbach, as well as local mountain guides, offer a diverse tour programme to the most rewarding destinations in the area.
Saalachtaler Forces of Nature
Those who venture into the Lamprechtshöhle on the well-built walkways, will find themselves in the largest walkthrough cave in the world. The imposing Vorderkaserklamm and the picturesque Seisenbergklamm are situated not far from the cave. These are among the most impressive gorges in Salzburger Land.
