Action & adventure in Glemmtal

Adrenalin highlights in the
Saalbach Hinterglemm summer region


High rope park Saalbach Hinterglemm

The high rope park in Saalbach Hinterglemm is the largest in Austria and offers the longest flying fox line in Europe, with which you can “fly” up to 80 kph through Glemmtal. 200 different stations, 30 flying fox lines and 10 climbing courses at different heights from 3 to 40 metres offer a variety at various levels of difficulty.

Glemmtal treetop trail with “Golden Gate Bridge”

The treetop trail made of solid larch wood is the highest of its kind in Europe – perfect for all those who like heights but with firm ground underfoot. The highlight is the “Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps” – a fantastic nature experience for every age group at a height of up to 40 metres. The low rope park at ground level is ideal for families with young children.

Water sports at Lake Zell

The bathing paradise of Lake Zell offers all kinds of fun, not only for kids but also for parents – from water sports to boat tours with a fantastic view of the surrounding alpine setting. The crystal-clear lake water not only invites you to go swimming but is also perfect for pedal boats, sailing, surfing and water-skiing.

Whitewater Rafting

Steering the course is the name of the game when rafting in the thundering spray of the Saalach. That’s not an easy feat in an inflatable boat. Tours for families with children from 12 years are also available.


At the end of the Glemmtal valley, you’ll find a unique canyoning route near the high rope park, which allows canyoning tours at varying levels of difficulty with a mix of jumps, slides, rope crossings and abseiling stretches. Well-secured and with an experienced guide by their side, small groups make their way through the canyons of the Saalach, which offer a particularly beautiful setting for canyoning tours with their turquoise water pools and cascade-like waterfalls.

Wildlife watching

We offer wildlife watching activities two times a week as part of our summer programme in Saalbach. We travel with our guests to Thumersbach to the JBG in Thumersbach/Erlberg.
