The Summer Activity Program offers interesting tours led by expert guides. Whether you use this opportunity to explore the region, enjoy outdoor sporting activity, or to push your limits – the choice is all yours.

From mountain biking, to climbing and Nordic Walking, the region has so much to offer.

You can, for example, take a “Hike for the Senses” and hone your perceptive skills, or embark on a 3-day Alpine Trekking program and enjoy the glorious natural landscapes of the Hohe Tauern mountains. We invite you to take a few moments to browse our activity program. Perhaps you, too, will soon have a chance to acquaint yourself with our region from a slightly different perspective.
 
Nordic Walking
was first introduced as a new sport in Finland in 1997, successfully establishing itself throughout Central Europe within just a short period of time. Cross-country skiing legend, Matti Heikkilä, originally used this sport as summer training for cross-country athletes. From this experience, sports scientists and doctors, with the assistance of a pole-manufacturer, developed this new and very popular sport.

What is Nordic Walking?
Nordic Walking is a form of endurance sport, in which active walking is assisted by use of special poles. The additional arm-and-pole work makes it possible to enjoy low-impact, yet highly effective full-body training: the upper body is strengthened, the joints are not put under stress and tension is released. Nordic Walking is almost twice as effective as regular power walking without poles. Nordic Walking is definitely something you should take a class in, since there is a danger you might use the poles incorrectly and inefficiently.

Nordic Walking – a sport for everyone! 
Nordic Walking is something practically anyone can do, regardless of age and fitness level, no matter where you happen to be. All you need is the right equipment and technique, and nature becomes your very own outdoor fitness studio!
 
Tennis The region of Mittersill, Hollersbach and Stuhlfelden offers fans of racket sports facilities that are set in truly beautiful surroundings. Just imagine tossing up a serve against the backdrop of the Alps, or taking a refreshing dip in a local lake after its game, set and match! And there’s no reason to wait for inclement weather in order to enjoy the 3 indoor courts at the Sporthotel Kogler!

Squash  So much more than a bad-weather alternative. This indoor sport demands skill, lightning-fast reactions and total concentration. With a ball bouncing everywhere and you in constant motion, you’re guaranteed to work up a sweat in no time! Ideal for everyone who wants to push themselves to the max.
 
The Pinzgau is one of the world’s best and most famous areas for flying.
Whether you have an inkling to try a tandem flight, want to learn to fly for yourself, or simply wish to pursue your hobby, this region’s fantastic geographic location creates outstanding thermals, allowing you to stay aloft for hours. The north winds blowing over the Thurn Pass make prolonged climbs possible.

Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, you’ll find optimal conditions in Hollersbach, with a launch area next to the Gasthof Berghof and several landing areas in the region. The beautiful area between the Hohe Tauern and Kitzbühel ranges, invites you to enjoy extended flights.

The 2,300 m-high Wildkogel is an ideal take-off mountain. Time and again, it has served as the launch pad for record-breaking flights.

Located in the neighboring community of Bramberg is the Pinzgau Flight School – the only one of its kind in the entire Hohe Tauern National Park. Everything is possible, from sampler classes to earning your special pilot’s license. Broad practice fields, launch areas at varying elevations and obstacle-free landing areas, make learning to fly easier than ever for our new fledglings!
 
Crystal-clear waters, emerald-green lakes and the Alpine world of the Hohe Tauern National Park make up this unique natural setting – no wonder that angling is an increasingly popular hobby, combining in its own special way relaxation, adventure and pristine nature. In the Oberpinzgau region, hobby and competitive anglers can enjoy 150 km of running waters and a wide range of lakes. If you wish, during the coldest time of year, you can even try your hand at ice-fishing in the Elisabeth See or the Hollersbach reservoir. The Bräurup Hotel & Fishery offers fly-fishing classes for beginners and pros, in the biggest privately owned and contiguous fishing area in all of Austria.
There are basically no limits to how you tailor your personal adventure program. Decide for yourself whether you prefer to go fly-fishing, belly-boat fishing, to fish a mountain stream or tranquil backwaters – or maybe you want to do it all!

Inline skating
is one of the hottest sports around
The reason: practically everyone can learn how to have fun on four wheels. And not just on city streets. Summertime skating in the countryside is probably the best way to combine fitness and fun. But online skates are much more than just a way of getting around. The balancing act on those narrow wheels is an optimal way to improve strength and coordination, honing your reactions in the process, without putting any undue strain on your joints.
Before “hitting the road”, beginners should definitely pick up the most essential basics. This includes standing up, skating straight ahead and through the curves - as well as braking, of course!
