Summer Holidays in Grossarl…
Leisure offers in summer
No matter if you have athletic or relaxing plans, you will feel nature here! Besides hiking, exciting excursions and relaxing stays at one of the many alpine huts, the Grossarl valley has much to offer!
For all those who seek a cool-down after a long and exhausting day of hiking or biking, we have the perfect option: the outdoor swimming area in Grossarl. This basin is heated and is in operation between mid-June to mid-September. There is also a mini-golf course next to the pool area. In case the weather isn’t quite right, there are also many spas in the region. For all the sports-lovers out there, there are many possibilities to play tennis or go rock climbing at all levels of difficulty.
The guided hiking tours in the national park also offer special ways to spend your days. Of course, Nordic walking is very popular here and there are countless beautiful areas to do this. This particular sport helps strengthen the upper-body by using special poles. We would be happy to help you find the perfect tour and path for you!
Those who search an adrenaline rush are also in the right place. Take a rafting ride on one of the many surrounding mountain rivers and experience ice cold and refreshing water. Paragliding, tandem paragliding and hang-gliding are also popular sports in the area. We are home to many popular starting-points.
The Grossarl rivers are great for angling and fly-fishing. However, it is only allowed to fish with a fly rod and only with wet or dry flies as bait. A particularly rare catch near the valley end of Huettschlag is the Alpine Salmon. This fish is extremely delicious and quite rare.
There is a full event program going on the entire summer in Grossarl. The “Bauernherbst” (Farmer’s Autumn) offers countless events such as the cattle parade when the cattle are brought down from the mountains, festivals, and St. Rupert’s Fest. A mountain mass is also a special experience during summer. In the evenings, you can enjoy interesting slideshows or visit the local museums in the Grossarl valley to learn about the history of the area.
