An active mountain summer in the Wildkogel Arena

The Wildkogel Arena not only offers well signposted hiking trails for hikers who are taking things at a leisurely pace. Ambitious sports enthusiasts will find what they are looking for here as well: on day tours they can climb the impressive peaks of the Hohen Tauern and the Großvenediger.

Especially popular with families with children: the high Alpine hiking trails which lead through the Kitzbühel Alps and the Hohe Tauern. And those who like to take things easy can reach the mountains on the 6 seater gondola lift, where they can enjoy the magical views of the surrounding Alps.

The Wildkogel Arena also offers any number of opportunities to cyclists as well as mountain biking and downhill biking enthusiasts. Whether you want to explore the Salzburg holiday region by touring bike or mountain bike alone or you would rather join a guided mountain biking tour – you can be certain of liking the superb countryside between the Kitzbühel Alps and the Hohe Tauern national Park.

After an action-packed day of hiking or biking, several restaurants in the Wildkogel Arena serve tasty Pinzgau meals and snacks in a cosy ambience. Meanwhile, the Kogel-Mogel Adventure Arena offers fun and adventure for the little ones: the wooden playground adjacent to the Wildkogelbahn summit station is the ideal place to run riot.

The Wildkogel Active Programme – a varied summer for adults & children

The Wildkogel Active programme is your opportunity to enjoy some great experiences – so that you can be certain of having great memories of your summer holiday in the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region. Something is on offer to suit everyone – whether it is families, those seeking adventure or those wanting to explore the region at a more leisurely pace.

Numerous family walks are available for families, on which children can enjoy themselves at a variety of play- and adventure stations. This means the younger walkers never get too bored.

A variety of day- and mountain tours are available for sports enthusiasts who are in good physical shape in the National Park. Guided mountain biking tours will also get you sweating.

The programme for those seeking action promises adventure and adrenaline:

  • Mega Flying Fox
  • Fox Park
  • High ropes garden
  • Via ferrata
  • Canoying

  • Family rafting and much more.

Exploring the magical scenery on long walks, conquering the mountain peaks, and giving your all on mountain bike tours can be pretty strenuous. Those who feel like relaxing, leisurely activities, in contrast, can go swimming or enjoy a round of mini golf. The natural bathing facilities in Neukirchen, and Mühlbach open air swimming pool in Bramberg are ideal places in which to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Or how about yoga, a Kneipp cure or a course in yodelling? Whatever you decide, relaxation and fun is always on offer.
