A carriage ride is marvelous fun. And in Gastein Valley, incredibly beautiful. No wonder, with panoramas like these!
A gentle snap of the whip, an eager snort from the horse, and your journey gets underway. The tackle of the horses jangles softly, their ears twitching to the rhythm of their own hoof beats. Your path takes you through quaint, beautiful villages, across flower-strewn meadows and alongside untamed mountain streams. Sometimes, the occasional neighing of the horses, the clacking of hooves and the twittering of birds are the only sounds you hear for the entire carriage ride. At others, however, things on the carriage can become quite boisterous, during a family outing with everybody in tow, for example. Whether romantic as a couple, or high-spirited with an entire group, one thing carriage rides in Gastein Valley all have in common: They are a really beautiful experience and a great opportunity to enjoy the magical nature of Gastein from a whole new perspective.
