Ski holidays St. Jakob im Defereggental - pure nature!

St. Jakob im Defereggental

In a quaint valley, embedded in the High Tauern National Park in Eastern Tyrol, lies the idyllic village of St. Jakob at an altitude of 1.389 m. Even though today the Defereggental is one of the nicest Alp valleys of Tyrol and has become a popular holiday destination, it has not lost any of its natural charm. Here you will still find enchanting winter scenery in nearly untouched nature. Therefore, winter hikers will definitely get their money's worth.

The centre of St. Jakob is shaped by beautiful old stone buildings from the time of the squires. The famous alpine village Jagdhausalm, also known as "Klein-Tibet", is worth a visit as well. Furthermore, the surrounding ski area does not leaves anything to be desired! Reliable snow conditions and a romantic alpine panorama make your winter holiday extraordinary!

East Tyrol

The idyllic holiday resorts in East Tyrol are surrounded by the magnificent backdrop of the Venediger group, Lienz dolomites with the two largest mountains in Austria, and the natural landscape of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Enthroned in the middle of the 3 thousand metre mountain range is the impressive Großglockner (3,798 m), Austria’s highest summit, and Großvenediger (3,674 m) over the region of East Tyrol – mountain scenery second to none! Thanks to the impressive glacier, East Tyrol offers one of the most snow-sure ski areas in the Alps, which is also somewhat sheltered from mass tourism and chaos. Tourers will also appreciate the conditions around the Großglockner. Alongside fun on the piste, you can toboggan to your heart’s content, hike through the winter landscape or relax in the indoor pool. At the end of a long day on the piste, you can spoil yourself with the regional specialities on offer in the many restaurants and Gasthöfe.
