Austria’s Lungau region is an official UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. At this time of year, the area enjoys warm days (20 degrees plus) and lovely cool nights. It’s a great time for hiking and, with the snow continuing to melt while the weather stays warm, there’s some great water rafting. Our off-season prices offer amazing value and you can cycle, mountain bike, horse ride and hike in complete isolation from crowds. For the golfers among you, if you fancy a break from trekking, Lungau has some amazing golf courses, which are generally so quiet you don’t need to book a tee time.

white water rafting
Whether you fancy tackling wild waves and gentle rapids, the local rafting outfit, ‘Firn Sepp‘, will guide you expertly through the white water as well as giving you some interesting information about the river and its surroundings. The trip covers about 18km, following the River Mur through the Lungau valley, with occasional stops for white-water swimming and rock jumps for the brave!
