Salzburg Sports World holidays are about adventure. Nature, sport and recreation seem to combine with perfect harmony, giving visitors of all ages an unforgettable introduction to the Austrian mountains. If you have children with seemingly endless supplies of energy or you have a hankering to fill your days with sport and activity, it is time to rent a self catering Salzburg Sports World villa or apartment and get active! Set in the stunning mountain scenery of central Austria, Salzburg Sports World accommodation is a superb place to just sit and relax, soak up the scenery and relax too.
Salzburg Sports World is known globally as a cycling and mountain biking resort of the highest quality, offering over 500km of marked trails. When the winter snow covering finally melts, the maze of mountain biking trails are awash with bikers tackling every route, from the most fearsome technical trails to the more family orientated, scenic trails which look out across the staggering scenery of Salzburg. There are many trail guides available from the Salzburg tourist information offices.
Located at the foot of the Radstadter Tautern, Tennengebirge and Dachstein Mountains means that you could not wish for better hiking, climbing and mountaineering than you get with a Salzburg Sports World property. There are 8 cable cars leading into the mountains, with over 1,000km of hiking trails greeting you from the top. With trails ranging from the tough mountaineering trails to family strolls around mountain lakes, you will always be able to find a suitable journey. During the summer, the lakes of Salzburg offer a fantastically refreshing way to get some more energy into your limbs too! There are also some 200km of bridle paths through the hills, and horses are available from many stables in the area.
Golfers in Salzburg Sports World properties are well catered for too. There is a fantastic little 9 hole course as well as a full 18 hole course available to visitors.
In winter, the Salzburg Sports World is a huge, linked ski area too, offering well over 250km of pistes, catering for every level of skier, snowboarder and cross-country skier.
Each of these resorts are hugely popular ski resorts in their own right, offering many miles of downhill pistes and a huge range of children’s ski schools. Not only offering excellent skiing in winter and endless walking and cycling in winter, the resorts of the Salzburg Sports World brim with alpine charm.

However, in summer, the whole region changes as the snows melt, the mountain plateaus become awash with the colourful blossoms of millions of flowers and walkers, cyclists and jockeys bask in temperatures reaching to around 30°C during the heat of the day.
