Healthy & Fit in Zell am See-Kaprun

Healthy & fit between mountains, glacier & lake - Zell am See-Kaprun health region in the Salzburger Land

Health and fitness; two very strong arguments for a holiday. Don't get this wrong, we don't mean that you have to think about health and fitness every minute of your holiday. A holiday is for enjoying, eating and drinking and savouring every moment with all your senses. This is actually the very definition of health for many. If body and mind are in harmony and you simply feel good, then you are definitely healthy. And fitness? Fitness comes almost naturally in Zell am See-Kaprun. With a wide range of activities and sports facilities between mountains, glacier and lake, it's difficult to sit still for long anyway. And being active is still the best way to explore all characteristic features of the Zell am See-Kaprun holiday region.

Healthy & fit through well-being

Crystal-clear water in the lake, icy glaciers high above, fresh air on the mountains, endless views and intact nature - these are the therapeutic ingredients for a relaxing holiday for health and soul. You are in charge and create your own health programme with activities in the diverse landscape of Zell am See-Kaprun or by simply slowing down and letting the clock tick at a more pleasant pace. Health begins where physical and emotional well-being dominate your day. At a place where you feel good and say: "I am feeling really good here." Zell am See-Kaprun is such a place. You will find many places and sites that turn out to be real sources of energy for body and mind. And it is not important whether you enjoy your time mountain biking, hiking, golfing or with water sports or whether you prefer doing sweet nothing and letting the energy of the surrounding 3.000 metres high mountains work its magic.

Take a step back

From everyday life, job and stress. Every step on a fantastic hiking or mountain tour increases the distance. The mind is set free and everyday life disappears into oblivion. Leave your stress behind on 400 km of hiking trails. Finally, you are yourself again; inhale the clear air and let your senses run free. The mind is freer and the personal horizon broader high up on the mountain, on the lush alpine pastures of the Schmittenhöhe and the Maiskogel or in the alpine adventure world of the Kitzsteinhorn. Look down to the valley and enjoy a fantastic view. Can you feel how your view on things and one or the other perspective changes already?

Slow down

"Take it easy" - when you have lost the way to yourself in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then is some slowing down often quite helpful. Relax on a quiet day at the Tauern Spa Thermal Springs and Wellness Resort in Kaprun or in the sauna world of the Zell am See Leisure Centre and enjoy a delicious dinner in urban flair of Zell am See or in a cosy alpine hut at the mountain afterwards. You will remember the high-quality regional products and genuine Salzburg hospitality for a long time to come. How about viewing the region's mountains from the lake? Go on board of a boat of the Schmitten shipping company and enjoy sitting in the sun. Lean back relish relaxing hours with fantastic views across the lake and to the mountains. Relax - this is just what you were looking for. Slow down and enjoy - this is real bliss for your health.

Yoga - between mountain and lake

Yoga is soothing for your body and the asanas provide balance, invigoration and harmony. Yoga novices but also experienced yogis will find relaxation at unusual places in Zell am See-Kaprun. Yoga sessions do not take place in a studio here but high up on the mountain for mountain yoga or far out on the lake for stand-up paddling yoga on Lake Zell. Practice your exercises in nature with all your senses during mountain yoga on the Schmittenhöhe. Accompanied by the gentle sound of the cow bells and the buzzing of the bees on the surrounding blossoming mountain herbs, the asanas have a special quality here. A challenge for the balance is SUP yoga at the waters of Lake Zell. Standing on a bulky stand-up paddle board, you move ahead pushing the single bladed paddle powerfully into the water. The yogis anchor in a quiet bay and start their exercises on the SUP board. The challenging board provides a special fitness kick and the vastness of the water ensures absolute relaxation and tranquillity.

Are health and fitness topping your holiday list? Do you want to combine enjoyment, good food and many leisure facilities with fitness and health for body and mind? Then take a good look at the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Forget the stress and take time to enjoy your holiday with all your senses. 

This is a good decision. Mountains, lake and glacier are not only for being active all day long and to be permanently on the move. Slow down, sit down, take a deep breath, find your inner balance and relax. But before you can enjoy such bliss, you have to book a holiday and accommodation first. Best do this now online.
