We did this trip on New Years Eve and we had a really magical day made even better because we were lucky enough to have our sleigh ride almost entirely in snow The sleigh ride was a round trip of around 2 hours including a half hour stop for coffee or in our case just walking in the snow looking at the brilliant views. The views on the journey from Salzburg were great and made the journey go quite quickly Our guide Walter helped with his informative and at times funny narrative After our sleigh ride we had a couple of hours in Ramsau for lunch and a walk There was some confusion over lunch arrangements as there was a large party on the trip who had lunch included whilst the rest of us didn't This wasn't made clear as we were all lead up to the same restaurant and then split into separate dining rooms The journey home was non stop so we were soon back in Salzburg ready for the NYE celebrations
we had the most amazing christmas day in Ramsau! The village was beautiful, our horseman was the sweetest and most warm-hearted, constantly sharing information of the village to us, telling us stories and chatting with us. And, snow fell at the most magical moment on Christmas day! It was truly an amazing way to spend our day, seeing landscapes and mother nature in person.
The bus drive up through the Austrian Alps was just beautiful! What a way to spend Christmas Day!
This tour was so well organised - when the bus arrived at our destination, waiting for us was a long line of horses with their sleighs! With snow on mountain tops only, our sleigh ride was just magical!
A perfect day out despite the lack of snow.
We did the trip on St. Stephens Day. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There wasn't the snow that we thought we were going to have but that had nothing to do with organiser. The weather is the weather. We had an enjoyable dayand would go on sleigh ride again. Very well organised.
Great day out!!
Tour guide was excellent.
Would highly recommend.
does it get any better than taking a horse-drawn sleigh through the Alps!? it brings new meaning to the Christmas tune..."dashing through the snow, in a 2-horse open sleigh"! we had an absolutely amazing time. the only slight bummer is you share the sleigh with 6 people, so you may not get to sit in front, as you have to keep the same seats the whole time based on weight distribution. BUT, you're getting gorgeous views of the Alps and Ramsau/Dachstein no matter what. plus you get to make a nice stop for a gluhwein und kuchen!
Wonderful experience and fabulous scenery all covered in snow. Surreal, felt a bit like a character in a snow dome.
