Not matter which sporting challenge you’re working towards, this sweat-inducing Austrian alpine escape is guaranteed to inspire and condition in equal measures!

So come and experience the ultimate outdoor playground during our 4-day mountain fitness escape where you’ll contour the peaks, valleys and trails of Austria’s newest UNESCO Biosphere Reserve alongside some particularly fit locals.

You can travel out during the Austrian Alpine summer months, or we can build a similar itinerary for Austrian Winter time fitness holidays, whichever you prefer!

That’s right, each day St Martin’s Power Princesses will encourage, guide and motivate you during a mix of alpine sporting endeavours, including trail running, summit walks, mountain biking and rock climbing. Winter time packages are also available, with all five Princesses living for the outdoors and boasting plenty of credentials, from trained mountain guides, skiing instructors and biosphere rangers to accomplished mountaineers, climbers, ski racers and cyclists. No need to be intimidated though…they’re up for plenty of fun too so you can take it as hard or as gentle as you like each day, with a cold Austrian beer or a G&T as a reward at the end of the day too (it’s the Lungau way!)

There’ll be plenty of time for post-effort relaxation each day too, thanks to our private sauna and gym, with an option for a chilly dip in our natural pond to rid limbs of niggles and aches! A 3 course meal cooked by our local Michelin starred chef on one night should also go down well!

  • 1Nina Küken Princess0:0Isabella climbing0:  Climbing (rock or wall depending on weather). The five of us regularly head out into the mountains and do a climb together and we know some excellent lines for people of all abilities. Nina is probably our best climber (well she is the youngest – she should be!) – she climbs three times-a-week both on the climbing wall and doing the real thing, and she’s super-strong.
  • 16:00: Austria Mountain climbingEvening trail run ca. 10Km (with hills!) – optional/if you’re up for it! Living in the mountains keeps you lean and fit (which means you can eat cakes and pastries without feeling guilty. Yay!) and there’s nothing like ending the day with a jog. Lungau is becoming known as a centre for what’s called ‘preventive medicine’, which basically means you avoid getting ill in the first place by eating well and staying fit and strong. Kerstin is our ‘gazelle’ and has perfect calves to motivate you to keep going!
  • 19:00: Catered chalet supper. Don’t tell anyone but we’ve done a deal with the owners of the only Michelin Star restaurant in the region. They provide our chalet catering, but don’t worry, they reserve the ‘pretty mini portions’ for their restaurant – we get served up mountain-sized portions of delicious local dishes. It’s pretty darned good!
