Off-piste in St. Anton

A Break from the Skis

tobogganing-arlberg-holidaysAs beautiful and big the Arlberg ski resort may be: sometimes the body needs a bit of a break. From spa to cross-country skiing, there is so much more to do. Here are some alternatives to skiing in St. Anton.

Toboggan Runs Around St. Anton

Some of the toboggan runs can be reached directly by cable car, others have to be hiked to. The natural toboggan run from Gampen to Nasserein is especially popular: look forward to 15 minutes of toboggan fun: 4km and an altitude difference of 500 metres is what this dashing ride offers. There are toboggan rentals at all sports shops.

Winter Hiking on the Arlberg

Just randomly through nature or on a specific tour. Prepared winter hiking paths are always great alternatives to piste adventures and will take you deep into the natural environment in a very relaxed way. You decide for yourself, choose your own pace and the length of your tour – get great tips directly at your Bergschlössl Hotel or with the hiking map.

Snowshoe Hiking

The Arlberg skiing school offers guided snowshoe hikes. If you are keen on leaving your own traces away from the beaten tracks and want to discover new places, then the 2 or 3-hour tours are perfectly right for you. Snowshoes are available at all sports shops.

Day Trip to Innsbruck

If you visit us by car, why not take one day off for a trip to Innsbruck? The RailJet train also takes you from the centre of St. Anton directly to Innsbruck centre. By car Tyrol’s capital is only one hour away and attracts with great shopping opportunities, charming coffee houses, museums and impressive historic buildings. Take a stroll through the little alleys in the old town and walk to Golden Roof. Look forward to a melange (one of Austria’s coffee specialties) and discover Tyrolean artists and more about the history of this unique region.

After an Action-packed Day: A Rewarding Break
