Hiking program 

The most beautiful guided hikes in the Salzburger Saalachtal from June-October 

Wednesday

In the Tracks of the Mountain Farmers

During an easy and comfortable walk with our guide Waltraud, we discover the varied life of the alpine herdsmen and mountain farmers of the Salzburger Saalachtal. Why do the calves and mother cows spend their summer on the mountain? What is the everyday working life of the alpine herdsmen and women like? How is cheese produced from the milk? On this walk, Waltraud describes the life of the humans and animals who spend their summer in the Almenwelt Lofer. Amusing highlight of this tour: every participant can take part in a milking competition and put their talent as a milker to the test! After we have experienced nature with all our senses, we fortify ourselves on the Alm with home-made, local products and a delicious aromatic farmers' doughnut.

Relaxed Gourmet Walk

The starting point for this tour with hiking guide Waltraud is the car park near the parish church in Unken, below the Eggerbauer. After a short walk via the Kalvarienberg, we reach the best viewpoint in Unken after about 1 hour. We enjoy the view of the Salzburger Saalachtal and the surrounding mountains during our short break. We walk on downhill in the direction of the Reitbauer to reach the farm shop Ennsmanngut via the Gsengsteig. Four generations live and work on this idyllic farm. Five farmers produce and market the finest regional products under the brand „Unken – weil’s schmeckt“. After a refreshing drink and homemade specialities from the farm and fishery, a visit to the fish pond follows. Here we learn about the rearing of the young fish in pure spring water. On the way back Waltraud leads us through forests and over meadows to the starting point of the tour.
