Enjoy a quintessential Christmas experience on a horse-drawn sleigh ride in a tiny village near Schladming during this day trip from Salzburg. Travel along the Salzach River valley past many of Austria's top ski resorts before reaching Schladming, where you will ascend 3,281 feet (1,000 meters) above sea level to the base of the stunning Dachstein, an Alpine mountain dominated by glaciers. In Ramsau, enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the local inns before you embark on your 2-hour horse-drawn sleigh ride full of wintry sights and jingle bells!

Make your own way to Mirabellplatz in central Salzburg, and then travel by coach along the Salzach River valley past ski resorts to Ramsau, near Schladming. This small but popular village is at the base of the Dachstein, a massive Alpine mountain with many glaciers.

In Ramsau, your guide will suggest inns where you can enjoy lunch (own expense) while your festive horse-drawn sleigh ride is prepared. Sample some Austrian specialties including Wiener Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel. Take a stroll in the frosty air before proceeding to an open field where your festively decorated horse-drawn sleigh awaits. Climb into your sleigh and glide along as your horse trots through the snow, its harness bells jingling.

The ultimate destination of your 2-hour sleigh ride will be determined by snow conditions. Following your Christmastime adventure, travel back to Salzburg, where your tour concludes with a drop-off at the original start point.

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.
