Family holidays in winter
By Lake Achensee, there is a wide variety of sports and leisure options for families. From children’s skiing lessons with BOBO the penguin to snowtubing, action-packed natural toboggan runs and leisurely tours on cross-country skis, Tyrol’s Sports and Vitality Park offers everything for a perfect family winter holiday.
Lake Achensee stands for definite quality of family holidays, as certified family holiday quality in the Family Tirol Villages, of which Achensee is one, is ensured by the Association of Tyrolean Family Nests: Only regions with an above-average recreation offer especially for families and in which infrastructure – but also accommodation establishments – is particularly geared towards the youngest guests can become members.
The family-friendly beginners’ skiing areas of the Achensee region are right at the hotel’s doorstep. Those who want to learn skiing have come to the right place. In the children’s areas down in the valley, the first tries on skis become a walk in the park. And the cable cars, too, can be reached directly from the town. Paired with activities such as cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snowtubing or winter hiking, Tyrol’s biggest lake offers the best ingredients for a most diverse formula for family holidays even in winter.
And the seven skiing schools also offer specially put together children’s programmes, tailored particularly to the needs of the little ones. The ski instructors are trained not only in skiing technique, but also in pedagogics and thus know exactly how to make learning easier for children. All the skiing schools in the region offer ongoing courses and workshops for all skill levels, from children to adults.
