Winter holidays in Salzburg

Activities in the Zell am See – Kaprun holiday region

Hotel Sonja Alpine Resort lies in the heart of the Kaprun – Zell am See region, which means it offers numerous activities for you to take advantage of in the surrounding area.

Away from the Slopes

Carriage rides

Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides

For an especially romantic opportunity to explore the region surrounding Hotel Sonja Alpine Resort, what better than a ride on a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh. Wrapped up nice and snug in thick blankets, you will sit there in the swaying coach as you glide on two runners through a winter wonderland. Other than the commands of the driver to his team of horses, the only thing that breaks the silence is the bright jingling sound of the bells on the harnesses. A carriage ride is an absolute highlight of any visit to the Zell am See – Kaprun region. During a stop during the ride or at the end of the tour, you can look forward to a nice hot cup of tea – and please don’t forget to give your four-legged friends, who made this experience possible in the first place, some well deserved attention of their own.

Winter Hikes – Snowshoeing

This appealing form of wintertime enjoyment is an ideal counterbalance to active winter sports on the piste or cross-country trail. Simply exploring the surrounding countryside with snowshoes on your feet. The snowshoes are definitely an advantage whenever you are in the mood to cut your own tracks across snow away from the cleared and well trodden pathways. That means, even though the snow may be a bit deeper, you will barely notice the difference. One special tip for a winter hike in the Zell am See-Kaprun holiday region: the promenades along the shore of the Zeller See. You can also quite easily set out on winter hikes in the center of Kaprun or Zell am See, which will also give you the opportunity to take care of some holiday shopping at the same time. Away from the town center, of course, things become increasingly romantic, where the interplay of sun, light and snow is certain to enchant you
