Enjoying winter’s silence on a horse-drawn sleigh
Wrapped in thick blankets and sitting on soft fur, you can get cosy on your sleigh. And then: Lean back, snuggle up to your partner, and listen to the gentle clanging of the horses’ bells! You’re slowly passing the snowy forests and valleys of the Nassfeld-Presseger See region and – before you know it – ultimate relaxation sets in.
Winston Churchill once said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” And that’s just what horse enthusiasts appreciate so much – whether it’s in the saddle or on a sleigh. In the morning, at noon or in the evening, holiday guests can have a truly magical experience in the wintry Outdoor & Relax World. All snuggled up, you’ll explore the enchanting mountain landscape, while the coachman tells you fascinating stories about the region and its people.

Romantic winter rides in Tröpolach and on Tressdorfer Alm
