Going on a sleigh ride has been on my bucket list for a very long time. New Year's Eve in Salzburg was the perfect opportunity. The tour was very well organized, and it turned out to be a perfect day. It would be nice if the company helped in getting a photo of each group on the tour as a momento.
Excellent trip, a definite must if you're visiting at the right time of year. We were fortunate to have deep, fresh snow combined with blue sky and sunshine - truly Winter Wonderland stuff. Even with the sun, it's cold, so make sure you wear warm clothes, including thermals if possible.
What a great way to spend Christmas Day. Warm blankets welcomed us on a very comfortable sleigh. The scenery was unparalled. Excellent trip.
My family and I absolutely loved this ride, it was one of the most memorable travel experiences ever. It actually snowed for about an hour whilst we were on the sleigh which made the trip even more fun. We stopped for a hot chocolate and apple strudel with ice cream half way through the journey.
Our group of six from Australia all agree that this tour has been the highlight of our holiday so far. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Don't miss this tour it is a must do. WE LOVED IT.
The Christmas Sleigh ride from Salzburg was a fantastic day. Organisation was terrific and it snowed while we were there which was a real bonus. Would recommend this to anyone staying in Salzburg at Christmas. A bit of advice. Take plenty of warm face protection during the sleigh ride as your face will get very cold if is is snowing during the ride as it was for our experience.
Absolutely awesome one of the main highlights of my time in Austria.
It was fantastic, we didn't end up going to a glacier, but the ride was wonderful.
Wonderful experience driver exceptionally friendly and informative, horse Bella was beautiful

A truely magical Christmas treat. With plenty of snowfall, days before our arrival, the surrounding scenery was beautiful. The view from the coach window was stunning. For the first leg of our sleigh ride we were bathed in glorious sunshine so be prepared with a pair of sunglasses. After a quick warming refreshment stop (snowball fight for the children) we headed out for the second half of the round trip, this time through thick snowflakes. Make sure to wear plenty of layers and cover yourself well. The sleigh ride itself was exhilarating at times but smooth overall (my wife, pregnant at the time, will vouch for that). The sleigh itself is fitted with retractable wheels with which the friendly and skillfull driver can engage whenever the surface gets a little uneven. The restaurant our tour guide adviced us to try was perfectly fine and reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recomend it to all. The sound of those sleigh bells will stay with me forever.
Trip was fantastic. First Xmas in the snow and it didn't disappoint. The sleigh ride was actually for 2 hrs and was magical. Would definitely recommend and would love to do it again. 1 tip - Wear extra socks. It was freezing.
Magical. The best tour I have ever been on. The scenery was spectacular. I would do it again.
I was a wonderful day and a highlight of our trip to Salzburg - cannot recommend it highly enough!
A magical and unforgettable way to spend Christmas Day. It was the highlight of our five day stay in Salzburg. The tour guides were brillant from the moment they picked us up at our hotel. The mountain views were spectacular and for anyone looking for an alternative to turkey on christmas day try the beef goulash and dumplings for lunch.
