Hiking holiday in Aktivhotel Alpendorf

Hiking holiday at the Aktivhotel Alpendorf

On your own or in pairs, with the whole family or well guided with the host family. Mountain hiking links, relaxes and strengthens body and soul.

Hiking in the Salzburg mountains

The Gernkogel hiking and mountain pasture area offers well signposted hiking trails for every taste: whether a relaxed mountain pasture hike or an extended tour at altitude, we want to help. Comfortable mountain pasture farms and mountain huts invite you to come on in and have a 'Jause' mountain snack.

There, where the air and the water are at their purest, you will find not only hikers, climbers, herdsmen and dairymaids, sheep and chamois, but also families on holiday who appreciate the almost boundless freedom and peace up in the "airy" heights. Hike along well-developed trails for fascinating vistas, views and insights.

Our insider tip for you: The mountain pastures are at their prettiest in June!

Ewald Unterkofler, your host, at his favourite hike

"My favourite hiking tour is the tour to the summit of Heukareck.
The view from Kitzsteinhorn over Hochkönig
