Optional Activities

Try out one of our many Explore More Optional Activities that help turn a great trip into an unforgettable one. A bonus is we’ve negotiated great rates to pass onto you! Here’s some of the Ski Austria optionals on offer. You book & pay for these through our Gasthof Schöneck On-site Team:

Sleigh Ride

A magical journey through forested Penningberg on a genuine ‘one-horse open sleigh’! Wind your way through the valley, warm up with some schnaps & relax at an authentic local Gasthof on the way.

Ice Skating & Dinner

Spend the evening like a local with a night of skating & schnitzel! Have a go at the winter sport of ice skating (skate hire included) on frozen Lake Salvena, followed by a tasty, traditional three-course Tyrolean meal including drinks at a local restaurant.


Ever seen "Cool Runnings"? Feel what it's like to be an Olympian on the ride of a lifetime! Reach speeds of up to 100km/h in a four-person bobsled on the Olympiaworld bobsled track, built for the 1964 Winter Olympics. Each bobsled is piloted by a fully qualified driver meaning it’s a ride that rivals any amusement park. Compare your times & see who wins the gold!

Tandem Paragliding

This is one for the thrill-seekers! Strap in, take off & soar through the skies on a breath-taking flight above the Austian Tyrol. You’ll enjoy unbelievable views, from the Hohe Salve mountain to Hopfgarten's valley below. You've got nothing to fear since you'll be accompanied by a qualified pilot who knows the ropes - & may even let you pull some of them yourself if you're lucky! Weather permitting.

Day Trips to Innsbruck

For those who want to explore the area & get to see a little more of Austria, jump on a day trip to Innsbruck - home to the famous Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) & a busy, atmospheric ski resort town. Want to try the world-famous Sacher Torte cake? No need to go to Vienna - pop into Innsbruck's official Café Sacher for a slice of decadence & warm yourself up with a melange - Austian cappuccino! Like sparkly things? Think Swarovski crystal and pay a visit to the recently renovated store in Innsbruck, now one of the largest Swarovski boutiques in the world! Innsbruck has plenty on offer for a day off away from the slopes.
