You'll return to the starting point
  • Sightsee the Austrian way with a traditional horse-drawn sleigh ride
  • Book the private ride for a group of up to eight of your family and friends
  • Enjoy a relaxing day with door-to-door transport from your Salzburg hotel
  • See a side of the Austrian countryside that wouldn’t be possible from a coach
What to Expect
Start your trip with a convenient pickup direct from your central Salzburg hotel, and relax on the coach journey to Faistenau, a village in the mountainous Flachgau region. Here, stretch your legs on a short stroll before you settle aboard your traditional horse-drawn sleigh, complete with jingling sleigh bells. Cozy up under snug blankets as your horse pulls you through the forests around the village, and admire the snow-dusted peaks, quaint villages, and lakes that line your route. When your ride ends, head to a local bar to hunker down with a hot drink (at your own expense) before your return coach journey to Salzburg. Your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

Our family enjoyed the time out from traditional sightseeing activities to relax in the mountains on this charming sleigh ride. While there was just a dusting of snow on the ground when we went, hence the sleigh was pulled on wheels, we nonetheless enjoyed the brisk mountain

We booked this tour through Panoramic tours and was picked up promptly by their driver and then driven to a small village in the hills where we were met by the family that provide the sleigh ride. The ride was very cold but we were covered in large thick blankets and the horses

We made a beautiful tour in a magic ambience in the middle of the snow. The driver is a very nice man and explains a lot about the surroundings and the history of the place, very interesting! It’s for shure a good way to see what is around the beautiful city of Salzburg.
