More than skiing
Skiing – without doubt the most popular snow activity. But there is more to life than skiing!
A winter holiday at Smiley’s hotel offers the whole family a wide range of sporting, exciting or relaxing ways to enjoy every aspect of winter’s beauty. The “Rodelberg” toboggan run in Stubeck is a unique experience. A piste bully takes the whole family up to the summit, then you fly down the mountain with a grin on your face! The mountain is also an El Dorado for ski tourers.
Or the great sled dog adventure – experience the glittering winter wonderland like a polar explorer!
In winter Lake Weiß provides one of Carinthia’s loveliest and most reliable natural ice rinks. The lake is usually hard enough to skate on in January and offers an exciting day out for the whole family. There is also the artificial ice rink at the sports stadium in Spittal/Drau for the fleet-of-foot.
Horse-drawn sleigh rides
Entdecken Sie den Zauber des Pferdeschlittenfahrens. Damit im Winter während der Fahrt niemandem zu kalt wird, sorgt der Kutscher mit einer kuscheligen Decke für die äußere Wärme – und mit einem Schnapserl für die innere.
For hikers and the courageous
The Lieser-Malta valley is regarded as a top ice-climbing region. Ice walls, frozen waterfalls and icicles are there for courageous Alpine climbers to explore. Winter excursions and activities
Winter excursions and activities
There’s more to a family winter holiday at Smiley’s hotel than downhill and cross-country skiing. There are numerous attractions to tempt young and old, from the viewing platform on the Pyramidenkogel, via a guided tour of the artists’ town of Gmünd, to the lake pyramid in Millstatt.
Or visit the Granatium, an exciting attraction based around the precious stone garnet. If sport is more your thing you may be drawn to Lake Weiß, a paradise for ice divers.
