Feel festive this Christmas season with a horse-drawn sleigh ride in a village near Schladming. Departing from Salzburg, this day trip ventures along the Salzach River Valley and travel up 3,281 feet (1,000 meters) to the Alpine mountain of Dachstein. Relax with some lunch at a local inn before hopping on a sleigh ride to soak up the wintry scenery. Your excursion concludes at its original departure point.
  • Chrismastime horse-drawn sleigh ride day trip from Salzburg
  • Get into the Christmas spirit on a merry horse-drawn sleigh ride in the tiny village of Ramsau in the Alps
  • See stunning alpine scenery as you travel alongside the Salzach River after leaving Salzburg
  • Marvel at panoramic views from the base of Dachstein mountain before your 2-hour horse-drawn sleigh ride
  • Sit back and relax or snuggle up as your sleigh glides along the snow!
Your day trip will begin in central Salzburg’s Mirabellplatz, where you’ll join up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Journey along the Salzach River Valley to the tiny village of Ramsau, located at the base of the Dachstein, an impressive Alpine mountain.

Upon arrival, relax with lunch at one of the local inns (own expense). Treat your taste buds to some of the region's specialty dishes, including apple strudel or the popular wiener schnitzel. Afterward, step out into the crisp air and head to the field where your horse-drawn sleigh will be waiting, decked out with jingle bells. Climb in and begin gliding across the snow as your horses take off for your adventure. Cozy up with supplied blankets from the carriage and, if you choose, stop midway to make snowballs or snowangels.

After your horse-drawn sled ride through the Alps concludes, you will be driven back to central Salzburg.

Magical white Christmas
, Jan 2019
We had an amazing Christmas Day doing this tour. Our guide Daniel was fun, informative and really nice. The scenery was incredible and the sleigh ride everything you could imagine. Add to that powder soft snow, hot drinks and food and this tour was the ticket. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Beautiful Tour

This was a gorgeous tour and beautiful way to spend Christmas Day. Snow had fallen the night before so the little skiing village was covered in snow. Riding in the sleigh through the snow, with the horse bells ringing was just magical. So worth of the highlights of our trip
Sleigh Ride in the mountains
, Jan 2019
This trip was amazing. You take a motor coach ride up to the mountains, have lunch and time for shopping, then get on the sleighs and bundle up in the blankets and go for 2 hour ride. It is chilly but the blankets and the stop for a hot chocolate make it a fabulous adventure. It is a winner!!!

We took a sleigh ride the day after Christmas! The tour was well organized with plenty od tim for each activity...I never felt rushed even with two younger kids [7 and 9 years old). The sleigh ride itself was amazing and the highlight of our trip to Austria!
Epic Christmas Day
, Dec 2018
This was such a great thing to do on Christmas Day as we were far from home and family. It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit. Our host Daniel was very good with the right amount of stories and historical facts. The horses were beautiful and seemed to enjoy the ride as much as we did. The weather was so perfect as it had snowed the night before so it was a virtual winter wonderland.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the horse-drawn sleigh ride in December 2017. The joy of riding on the snow at Christmas time, under the warmth of the blanket, was one of the highlights of our trip to Salzburg. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
