The 'chocolate box' Alpine town of Rauris, boasts stunning views up to the Sönnblick Glacier and the wilderness that lies beyond. It has been a skiing area for more than a century.
Rauris is a great place for those who wish to relax and those who are after a more energetic holiday. Rauris is an adventure sport centre, including skiing, hiking, rafting, mountain biking, mountaineering, paragliding, ice and rock climbing and 46km of groomed cross-country piste.
The Rauris valley has two of the biggest glaciers in Austria, both a mecca for ski-touring. Footpaths and hiking trails lead directly into the countryside through the “Rauriser Urwald” – a primal forest scattered with 80 secluded lakes. In the evening you can also experience the romance of a horse-drawn sleigh rides across crisp, white snows, or the excitement of a moonlight tobogganing adventure.
