The Austrian Alps region
The Rauris valley, the "golden valley of the Alps" is in the heart of the the Hohe Tauern National Park and is a great location for year round outdoor activities.
This is a hikers paradise with a range of walks from leisurely strolls to hikes in alpine pastures or even high Alpine tours. There are 295 km of marked hiking paths and 40 mountain inns in the Raurisertal which is one of the largest and most beautiful hiking areas in the Salzburgerland.
There is also plenty of scope for cycling with a number of cyclepaths in the valley as well as more adventurous mountain bike trails within striking distance.
Some of the largest ski areas in Austria are within a 20-40 minutes drive. With the Salzburg Superski Card you can access to a wide variety of skiing in other resorts such as Zell an See, HochKoenig, Kaprun (including its glacier), Gastein and others. If you like variety ski a different resort every day !
The main ski area in Rauris is accessible from the Hochalmbahn gondola which is approximately 400m from the apartment. The area is easy to navigate and offers a broad variety of slopes for every standard of skier.
The nursery slopes, ski hire and ski school meeting point are all situated conveniently at the base of the gondola. From here it is possible to take the Hochalmbahn up to 1780m and a second gondola (the Gipfelbahn) to over 2000m.
You can ski down from the top on blue and red runs to the middle station with more challenging red and black routes down to the village itself.
There are several mountain restaurants on the slopes all serving local fare as well as a couple of imbiss' at the base where you can enjoy a snack or drink after skiing or whilst waiting for friends.
If you prefer a more gentle pace but still want to experience the mountains, there are 45km of cleared hiking paths that you can explore with snowshoes! Additionally there are 45km of groomed cross-country piste including 5 loops at elevations between 950 and 1200 metres
A toboggan run can be accessed from the top of the Kreuzboden chairlift and toboggans hired at the restaurant. This is even open a couple of evenings a week conditions permitting and it great fun for family outings.
In the summer, hiking, rafting (Taxenbach), mountain biking, and paragliding are all on hand. A number of golf courses are within easy reach at Zell an See, Goldegg and Bad Gastein.
There are also many diversions for the family - you can try your hand at panning for gold (when gold mining was at its height 10% of the world's gold supply was brought to the surface in this valley !) or bread baking at a hill farm.
Take in the bird of prey show, or spend an afternoon at the nearby outdoor pool with its own 50m slide. There is also a summer park and mini golf course in the village.
There are excellent pool/spa complexes at Badhofgastein and just recently opened in Kaprun
