The unique natural setting of Tirol’s largest lake speaks for itself: Experience the magic of winter in five picturesque villages backdropped by the snow-covered mountains. The region’s ski areas have 53 km of family-friendly slopes and bespoke offers for children. With over 230 kilometres of trails groomed for classic skiing and numerous tracks for adaptive skiing, Lake Achensee is rightly known as one of the country’s best Nordic skiing destinations. Off the ski runs, there is a huge range of active outdoor pursuits available in the winter wonderland of Lake Achensee. How about a scenic ski tour or an exhilarating toboggan ride? Those who want to experience the solitude of winter can choose from a variety of winter hiking trails or join the region’s ranger-guided tours. And what could be better to discover the storybook winter setting than a horse-drawn sleigh ride, cuddled up beneath warm blankets – a romantic experience that is guaranteed to create lasting memories.
