Relaxing sleigh ride
Dec 2019 • Family
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 air, the majestic peaks and the quiet stillness of the very small town we were riding through. After about an hour ride, our driver took us back to town via the tallest peak in the area. We enjoyed fantastic views and there was plenty of snow for the kids to have a snowball fight!

Cold but lovely sleigh ride
Mar 2018
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 set out at a brick trot.
We were expecting to go through some of the forest and local countryside on the sleigh but in fact the ride keeps to the roads and goes on a circular route through the village in the valley using the wheels on the sleigh so this was slightly disappointing given the amount of money we had paid.
Would we go again most likely not as the ride is slightly misinterpreted.

Trip in the winter wonderland of Salzburg-Faistenau
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.
