Highlights
  • 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 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.
