Tobogganing in the Tyrol:

Great fun for all the family

There's so much to do and see during your stay. In such beautiful natural surroundings, you'll be tempted to spend the whole day out in the mountains. Although Sölden is renowned above all for its skiing, there's a lot going on away from the pistes, too. Among the other highlights of a Tyrolean winter holiday are the superbly maintained toboggan runs and atmospheric tobogganing evenings.

Fancy leaving the skis or snowboards behind for a change and trying a different form of downhill experience? Sölden's toboggan runs are designed for just that purpose and are popular with visitors of all ages. Don't worry if you haven't brought the right equipment. You can hire everything you need at the resort. You'll find a wide selection of traditional wooden sledges and modern tobogganing equipment. The descent can be very fast indeed, so suitable protective clothing is important, especially for children. We recommend either ski helmets or safety helmets, both of which can be hired at the resort.

Sölden boasts 5 km of superbly maintained toboggan runs. The resort's toboggan runs remain open late into the evening for maximum fun in the snow. As soon as it begins to go dark, the runs are lit up so that you can continue sledging in safety at all times. The most popular toboggan runs start from the Gaislachalm and Gasthof Silbertal. Getting there is easy on the shuttle bus, which will also carry all your equipment. Shuttle buses run to Gasthof Sibertal daily but only on Tuesdays and Thursdays to the Gaislachalm. At weekends, the shuttle buses operate as required.

The organised tobogganing evenings are a wonderful experience that you won't forget in a hurry. The event always attracts large crowds of visitors. Please note that the toboggan run down from the Gaislachalm/Silbertal crosses the ski piste and that the last 300 metres may not be lit. You should take particular care at this point to avoid spoiling your fun on the toboggan slopes through an accident!
