Lama Trekking Tour

Another great tip for your family holiday in Bad Hofgastein is the lama trekking tour through the idyllic Gastein mountain landscape. After a short general introduction to the handling of lamas as load-bearing animals, these trusting animals uncommon to Austria are saddled up and loaded with backpacks. In the company of an experienced guide, you’ll walk to the Riedlalm Pasture in Bad Hofgastein, where a delicious traditional buffet will be waiting for you.

Alpine pastures adventure for families

The family-friendly alpine huts in Gastein are equipped with their own children’s play areas – perfect for a summer holiday with children. Whilst your little ones romp about on the pastures, pick colourful flowers and watch butterflies, you can have some down-time on the sun terrace. Enjoy the mountains, rock formations, alpine pastures and streams, the pungent fragrance of hay, freshly baked bread and camp fires.

Teens will find great bike trails in Gastein, discover challenging climbing routes with the guidance of our experienced Gastein mountain guides and find delight in hiking or panning for gold.
