Mountain Biking: Since 2001 the Lungau area has expanded its already substantial mountain bike network. Fifteen newly accessible, continuous, uniformly labelled mountain bike routes, covering a total length of over 560 km on diversified routes in Lungau’s mountains are waiting to be discovered. The quiet valley roads offer less strenuous biking for those who wish to conserve energy!
Amateurs and pros alike have over hundreds of kilometres to challenge in the mountains. You will be rewarded for your athletic efforts with the unforgettable experience of the province of Salzburg’s environment.
The climate of Lungau enhances your health! A holiday in Lungau is twice as healthy because of its location at an altitude of over 1,000 m above sea level. Most recent studies have shown that a vacation at this altitude has resulted positively on one’s health: the production of red corpuscles is stimulated and a longer vacation has proven sustained weight loss.
Bikes can be hired locally.

How to get there and other information: Budget flights are available from regional UK airports to Salzburg (125 km) and Klagenfurt (133 km), from where cars can be rented. Travel time is 1hour 15 minutes from Salzburg, 1 hour 25 minutes from Klagenfurt. Flights are also available to Munich, Innsbruck, Linz, Graz, Vienna, Venice, Trieste Ljubljana and Zagreb. Please note that a 'vignette' is required to travel on the motorways in Austria - these can be bought at petrol stations to cover various time periods. Typical cost is about 8 euros for a week.

                          In the holiday region of Lungau, Mariapfarr is recognized as the sunniest resort in Austria with a healing climate. Its stunning Taurach valley location at an altitude of 1100m also provides an abundance of snow for a wonderful winter experience. There is an abundance of prepared trails for skiing, cycling, walking and horse riding. There is also the terain for serious mountaineering and ski touring. The capital of the region is Tamsweg, just 6.5 km away, and offers many leisure activities and cultural events. There is an adventure pool with the longest 'black hole' in Austria. The beautiful city of Salzburg is only 75 minutes away by car and offers a plethora of culture as well as shopping in the unique old city and modern centres. Salzburg also boasts a fine selection of restaurants, and is of course the birth place of its most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and is the home of 'The Sound of Music'.

                          Golf: There is a golf course at nearby St Michael - 'Golf Club Lungau'

                          Visit for further details and information.

                          Ski: The skiing here is an undiscovered gem - there are 4 separate ski areas totalling 300 km of piste runs, all reachable by the free ski bus service within 30 minutes, or less than 20 minutes by car. Obertauern is the most well known as being the most snow sure resort in Austria with a season extending from late November until early May. The other local areas of Fanningberg, Grosseck-Speiereck, and Aineck-Katschberg provide wonderful skiing on relatively empty slopes with an abundance of welcoming huts.

                          Cross-country skiing in snow-covered valleys and the sun shining in your face – that’s pure relaxation. And at the same time breathing in clear, healthy air and admiring the frost covered surroundings – that’s cross-country skiing in Ferienregion Lungau. There are also approximately 70 kilometres of skating tracks for skating enthusiasts. All together, the Lungau cross-country network encompasses 150 kilometres of well prepared tracks.
