Saalbach Hinterglemm in the summer: 5 unique nature experiences


Summertime in Saalbach Hinterglem has plenty to offer, especially various ways to experience nature! We will show you the 5 most beautiful, spectacular and special experiences.

This way, your summer in Saalbach Hinterglemm will be unforgettable!

Summer to-do 1: Picking a meadow flower bouquet

In the summertime, nature offers a breathtaking flora and fauna. Meadows full of splendidly blossoming alp flowers line the hiking paths all around Saalbach Hinterglemm. Bell flowers, forget-me-not, crowflowers and many more grow in over 1,000 meters in altitude. A small bouquet of flowers picked by you will bring a piece of nature into your apartment. The free smartphone app PlantNet will help you not to pick protected flowers. If you are uncertain, the app will determine the flower quickly and easily.

Summer to-do 2: Dare to jump into a mountain lake

Admittedly, if you are sensitive to cold temperatures, this point might not be for you. Our mountain lakes are clear as daylight and ice-cold. The Hochtorsee (lake Hochtor) and the Hackelbergerseen (Hackelberger lakes) are very refreshing on hot days. As the term “mountain lake” implies, these lakes can only be reached after a nice mountain hike. So, pick up a towel and a backpack and experience the unique feeling of taking a short, refreshing bath between mountain tops.

Summer to-do 3: Enjoy a sunrise at the mountain top

Have you ever heard the saying “The early bird catches the worm”? It was probably invented for sunrise hikes. Getting up in the middle of the night might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the reward is priceless. You’re standing at the mountaintop and the orange bowl that is the sun will reveal itself more and more. You’re holding a cup of coffee while enjoying the complete silence. There is no better way of experiencing nature!

We’ll be happy to assist you in finding the right tour for you and for what time you will need to set your alarm.

Summer to-do 4: explore the spectacular head of the valley

The special thing about Hinterglemm? It ends in a head of the valley – passing through with a car is impossible! In the summertime, this geographic characteristic makes the final square kilometers of Hinterglemm truly unique. You will find spectacular waterfalls, the Geißstein, which at 2,363 m is the highest mountain of the Glemmtal (Glemm Valley) and further beautiful summits. The head of the valley circuit hike is also recommended. Thanks to its moderate inclines, it is also suitable for children.

Summer to-do 5: long-distance hiking

The long-distance hiking paths around Saalbatch Hinterglem offer the full Saalbach summer nature experience. The “Pinzgauer Spaziergang” (Pinzgau Walk) or the “Seven Summits” require a certain fitness level but offer spectacular views. The very term “long-distance hiking” promises an exhausting experience. At times, you might struggle, but to truly feel and conquer our mountains is a real moment of triumph.
