Beautiful tours on the Hochkönig
Ski tour nature trail at the Arthurhaus
A bit above the Bergheimat Hotel you can go on a circular ski tour. The 4.5km long nature trail starts at the Arthurhaus; it takes ca. 1 ½ hours and takes you up the Hochkeil and down again. It's all about health and safety and along this trail you will find helpful tips for beginners and also more advanced ski tourers as to how to ascend the right way and how to behave in the alpine terrain. Thanks to the excellent signposts along the whole path you are always safe and sound.
On the 1,782m high Hochkeil summit mountaineers can enjoy a wonderful panorama in all cardinal directions. A cable car cabin invites you for a cosy break. The views stretch from the Hochkönig over the Hohe Tauern and to the Großvenediger mountain group.
As part of the weekly winter programme in the Hochkönig region you can climb the Hochkeil summit also with a guide. The trial ski tour takes places every Wednesday at 10 am. You can sign up until Tuesday at 5 pm with us in the Bergheimat Hotel or at Sport Klaus.
Ski tours in Maria Alm and Hinterthal
In the neighbouring valleys Hinterthal and Maria Alm you will find even more ski tour opportunities. Tours on the Aberg, up to the Thoraualm or the Steinbockalm allow you to ascend on the side of the ski runs. Please note that these tours are only possible after 4pm and also only on certain days. Further information on the planned ski tours is available at the Bergheimat reception.
Adventure on the mountain
