Night sleds
Every Monday night in Lofer (weather permitting) there is a torch lit toboggan run from the Loderbichi down the Alpine pasture lane. Meet at the telecabin – just follow the crowds. Every Tuesday and Thursday the 2.1 km toboggan run is lit from 20.00.pm onwards at the nearby Maria Kirchental. Enjoy the culinary pleasures of the Krenflseichessen restaurant and either toboggan or taxi back to the village.

Horse drawn sleigh ride
Indulge yourself and the family with a horse drawn sleigh ride from Lofer to St Martin where you can enjoy a little tipple to warm you before the return trip – unmissable!

Wild animal feeding
Enjoy the beautiful experience of viewing the native red deer coming back from a hard days prancing in the forest for their evenings feed at the Knappenstadl restaurant. Pick up a sled at the foot of the mountain and take an evening walk high up to the restaurant. Whilst they eat outside you can view them from the comfort of the restaurant. After you have seen and eaten enough simply toboggans back to the village along the illuminated nature trail.

Cross country skiing
For the non down hillers amongst you why not try the 37 kms of cross country skiing trails in Lofer and St Martin. It is a wonderful way of enjoying the village scenery without disappearing up to your neck in snow. For the enthusiast the valley offers a total of 80 kms of trails in the mountains and village pastures.

Ice skating
In Lofer and nearby St Martin, Toads and Weissbach you will find well lit skating areas for a gentle glide under the stars.

If you have not tried your hand at this sport it is certainly worth having a go. There is nothing better than to glide your stone to “home” and knock your opponent into touch – bliss! The village curling “sheet” can be found near the tennis courts just a 5 minute walk from the house.

The local indoor swimming pools of Unken and Toads offer a change in scenery if the skiing gets too much for you. For those without their own transport the local bus service will get you there.

Day Trips
Nearby Saltzburg or the beautiful lake side town of Zell am Zee are well worth a visit to stock up on souvenirs or just indulge yourself and offer a tranquil change if you need to rest your aching bones.

Suggested summer activities

Lofer is a very popular summer holiday location for the Dutch, Germans, Italians and Austrians. However Austria is not a popular UK holiday location. This means that at present most of the UK flight operators offer incredibly cheap flights during the summer. Once you realise what is on offer in Lofer during the summer we think you may be tempted to give Spain a miss next year!

Hydro speed
So you have experienced belly boarding in Cornwall and the Med – been there and done that! Well think again. It sounds so simple - go to the village specialist, grab a board, lie half on the board half in the water and swim downstream. Except the river is a torrent and stops for no-one. See www.motion.co.at for details.

The village tennis courts are within a 5 mins walk of the house.

If you haven’t had enough of the water with hyrospeeding why not walk for 3 minutes from the house to the aptly named beautifully landscaped heated outdoor pool the “Stone Mountain bath” It is a magnet for all visitors to the village and has been designed to keep both children and adults entertained.
There is also a plentiful supply of natural bathing in the surrounding lakes and rivers. The nature bath reserve of Vorderkaser offers a blissful day trip where you can enjoy the natural bathing and playground areas for the kids and use use the many grill areas to cook up an al fresco delight for lunch.

White water Rafting
Lofer is blessed with the roaring Saalech gushing through it. As a result Lofer is a magnet for river enthusiasts. It is a regular venue for the world cup canoeing competitons. It offers entertainment to all levels of fun lovers from gentle paddlers to mad cap adventurers. Rafting courses are available for beginners and experts from the village experts at Motion.

Mini Golf
There is a mini golf course in the village next door to Café Dankyl.

18 hole or 9 hole ”travelling golf” course
For the true golfer nearby Saalfeldon offers the true golfing experience. Lofer and St Martin however offers an unusual alternative. The course is split into two 9 hole courses, each course covers approximately 8 kms. Each section will take around three hours to complete. Each hole is crafted to be as awkward as possible and found at various intervals along well marked footpaths.
The rules are simple; each stroke is a point and if after 6 strokes you fail to pot your ball you score 7 points. The lowest score wins.

The entire valley is connected with cycle tracks, whilst the village telecabin offers a painless access to the mountain trails. For the hardcore cyclists there is an established 480 kms long mountain bike network. See www.motion.co.at for organised routes.

If you love getting wet, and are as a fit as a fiddle, the team at Motion will show you how to combine the force of a wild mountain stream with a natural sporting experience. We hear it is an unforgettable experience!

The team at Motion offer an extensive range of Archery courses from 12yrs upwards. After teaching the basic skills you can graduate to the hunting courses where you can demonstrate your new found skills collecting discs. For more experienced archers there are several spectacular courses for long distance and 3D targeting.

Geology Park
Just outside St Martin you can travel back to the ice age at Strohwolln Geology Park. The Park is divided into three sections and over the 1 km walk you will witness the violence of the glaciers in carving the landscape, fossilised Kuhtritte and the remnants of the beach atmosphere 250 million years ago.

The Alpine pastures of Lofer are reputed to be the most beautiful in Salzbugerland. They offer waterfalls, cool clear brooks and spectacular scenery. The top pastures can be accessed both by telecabin or road. The mountain restraints are always a welcome venue to take a breather and soak up the breathtaking scenery.

From the beginner wanting to try out this fun past time to the hardened professional – Lofer’s world class surf offers a challenge for all levels. The village experts at Motion will be able to tailor a programme for you.

Experience climbing, sliding and balancing on jagged rocks and rope bridges with an expert guide. All this is available from the village experts at Motion.
