Arrive in Salzburg early in the morning, check out the Redbull Hangar 7 which is just a 4-minute drive from the airport (there’s also a bus that will take you there). Drop off your bags at the hotel and explore the charming city of Salzburg at your own pace before meeting us in the evening for a quick briefing in the rooms!
Day 2 — Day trip to Hallstatt
Hallstatt is one of those must-visit iconic locations so grab some breakfast (incl. from the hotel) before we whisk you away to this picturesque city! Visit the world’s oldest salt mine before hunting for the best photo spots to catch at sunset.
Day 3 — Arrive in Zillertal Valley
Pack your bags, we’ll be leaving for Zillertal, where we’ll spend the next six nights in a cosy chalet on a farm. Get ready for a unique evening hiking experience and some schnapps degustation.
Day 4–6 — Ski/Snowboard
We’ll spend the next three days on the slopes! Just a 10-minute ride from the accommodation, you’ll have access to wide runs across three different areas. Beginners can sign up for lessons, those who have gotten their S-turns on snowboards can start exploring with the group or with a hired mountain guide.
Day 7 — Chill day / Day Trip to Innsbruck
Take a chill day — you could pet the farm animals, go on a nearby hike, or take a day trip to Innsbruck (perhaps sign up for a scenic paragliding ride), and explore the charming old town.
Day 8 — Hike with Alpacas + Sledding
Get acquainted with the Alpacas while hiking around with views of the Austrian alps. Then grab your sleds as we’ll be sledding down one of the longest sled runs in Austria spanning over 7km!
Day 9 — Bye :'(
Pack your bags, say bye to your favourite farm animals (and humans). We’ll be taking a private charter to Salzburg Airport where you can either continue your adventures in Austria or catch your flight back to Singapore! ✈️
