Forest Wellness in Saalbach Hinterglemm
Medicine to breathe
Relax in the hammock and let nature work its magic on you. Take new thoughts, breathe fresh air, leave everything behind. The forest is simply good for you and we all feel it intuitively. Do nothing and let your thoughts wander. But the forest contains even more power than you might think. Our immune system is able to connect directly to the messengers (terpenes) of the trees and our body’s defences are immediately inspired and given a boost. On a single day in the forest our killer cells (that is our white blood cells) are activated to the extent that their poduction is raised by 40%. This effect continues up to seven days. If you stay in the forest for two days, the killer cells are doubled and will stay so for up to 30 days. A day in the forest has also got healing powers regarding diseases of civilisation like high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic insomnia. We are so enthused about these facts that we have created our very own forest wellness area in Saalbach Hinterglemm and we can highly recommend it: Simply take the Reiteralm railway to Reiteralm and you find the entrance after 300 m on the left hand side.
You can expect marvellous hammocks, delightful picnic baskets from Reiteralm, and yoga sessions in the forest. Enjoy the forest ground barefoot and allow to be taken on a soothing health journey in the pleasant fir forest of Saalbach Hinterglemm.
Location: Reiteralm 300m to the entrance of the forest wellness area
Dauer: We recommend to stay in the forest at least for two hours
Hiking at the Hochkogel mountain
The hike up to the top of the 2249-metre-high Hochkogel mountain is a challenge for experienced hikers. Spectacular views at the top are the reward for all that hard work.
Sunrise hike to the Tristkogel
There are few experiences like watching the sun rise from the top of a mountain. At the Rosentalerhof you have the chance to do exactly that in the company of a trained mountain guide.
