The Saalbach Hiking Challenge Weeks

The Saalbach Hiking Challenge
Three long-distance hiking trails – one challenge: With a total of 64 kilometres and 3,800 vertical metres, the Saalbach Hiking Challenge presents a new challenge for athletic mountain hikers in Saalbach Hinterglemm.
In autumn 2019, the first Hiking Challenge Weeks will take place. In the space of one week, three hikes will be on offer where experienced hiking guides will accompany guests.
The Saalbach Hiking Challenge

Saalbach Hinterglemm is the ideal base for hikers to explore the surrounding mountains between the lush green hills of Pinzgauer Grass Mountains and the rugged peaks of the Kitzbüheler Alps. 400 kilometres of signposted hiking trails are waiting to be discovered. Athletic Alpine hikers, as well as those who prefer walking at a more leisurely pace, will find the perfect trail.

However, in autumn, for hikers with stamina, we offer the Hiking Challenge Weeks, where a total of 64 kilometres and 3,800 vertical kilometres need to be conquered. Experienced hiking guides will accompany two groups throughout the week over the most beautiful peaks in Austria. These weeks are supported by a varied social programme.
