Adventurous Hike

For hiking enthusiasts, the Hohe Tauern National Park is also a paradise. This immense natural park, located south of Wald im Pinzgau, offers numerous hiking trails through breathtaking landscapes. With 226 different peaks, there's a challenge for every hiker. But the valleys of the park are also worth exploring, with picturesque streams, lakes, and waterfalls. Who knows, you might spot one of the many species of animals that live here along the way.

Cycling on the Tauernradweg

For the more sporty among us who prefer the bike over walking, the Tauernradweg is a fantastic way to explore the region. This cycle path is approximately 280 kilometers long and runs from the Salzach River to the Inn River towards Passau, offering stunning views of the mountains along the way.

You can try tackling the path on a regular bicycle or mountain bike, but the e-bike is also an option. These electric bicycles can be rented at many bike rental companies in or around Wald im Pinzgau.

Adrenaline Rush

True adventurers who love an adrenaline rush can satisfy their craving at Sports & More Unterwurzacher GmbH. This company, located in Wald im Pinzgau, offers numerous exciting activities. For example, you can choose to climb along a steep cliff face (via ferrata) or go ziplining and zoom through the air at high speed. Additionally, you can book multi-day tours under the guidance of experienced mountain guides. All these activities guarantee an unforgettable and exhilarating experience.

You can also opt for the sporting challenge of canyoning. During this adventure, you follow the course of a river by walking, climbing, rappelling, and swimming, while enjoying the beautiful nature along the way. The difficulty level varies from beginner to advanced. Regardless of your level, it's always recommended to go with a guide.

For children who love climbing and, of course, are not yet able to participate in a via ferrata, there is the adventure park Kogel-Mogel in Neukirchen am Grossvenediger, right next to the mountain station of the Wildkogelbahn.
