Adrenaline, action, adventure

On the rock & in the water

Whether rafting, canyoning, or kayaking in our wild waters – here in the Hochkönig region, you will experience true adrenaline kicks. Climbers can reach for the stars on summit tours, high alpine routes, and via ferratas.

High up …

In the forest rope course Natrun

Or how about a trip to the forest rope course on the Natrun, where the popular Schlawutzel tree trail for children with 11 exciting stations appropriate for children will make kids’ eyes sparkle? Alone or with your family, you will experience spectacular hours climbing across ropes and swinging wooden planks under the open sky.

… race downhill

On the summer toboggan run

The summer toboggan run on the Biberg in Saalfelden will provide much fun for the whole family during your active holidays at the Hochkönig. On an overall length of 1.6 km and a difference in altitude of 345 m, you will enjoy toboggan fun also in summer.

Giant slides & mountain carts

Down the mountain with speed

The forest slide park on the Natrun in Maria Alm represents another opportunity to race down to the valley with dash and fun. During your speedy downhill adventure, 5 steel slides with a length of up to 45 m will safely lead you down from the top station of the Natrun cable car to the Postalm. Afterward, you can comfortably return to the starting point with the cable car Natrunbahn.

Have you ever raced down the mountain in a mountain cart? The mountain cart piste starts at the alpine playground at the Karbachalm, which can be reached quickly with a cable car. Enjoy the breathtaking panorama before you dash down the 7 km long road (after receiving instructions, of course). This adventure will undoubtedly be packed with action and fun.
