Biathlon in Lungau

Pretend you're Mr Bond for day

Try your hand at this olympic discipline and pretend you're Mr Bond for day! We work with the experts at Gnadenalm, towards Obertauern, where they cater for all abilities of shooting and cross-country skiing. Some of our guests would have done a bit of cross country but never held a gun. Others have tried shooting but don’t know one end of a ski from the other. However, the Gnadenalm team put you at ease instantly and, as well as giving you a bit of a workout, they make it really great fun!

What is there not to like?

What is there not to like? 5* accommodation, great hosts and more things to do than you can shake a stick at. Currently sitting in the Panorama Alm drinking coffee whilst brushing the fresh powder off the jacket.

The greatest place for an action packed holiday

The greatest place for an action packed holiday, just to chill out or anything in between. So much to do in beautifull surroundings.

Once you are in, you never want out

There is one problem with a St Martin chalet, once you are in, you never want out. Life is so easy with the food delivered, restaurants taken care of and in case you run out of wine a handy racks full at the reception. The comforts of your own home, the family around you, the amazing food of Lungau region, the laid back atmosphere and the magic scenery. We went twice and we are looking to return again and again and again.

Now, I have added another thing to my Bucket List: returning to st martin chalets!

I planned for almost a year to find the perfect place to complete the #1 item on my Bucket List. I had aspired to dive in the GrunerSee. st martin chalets made it come true. They were able to do anything that I needed or wanted. When I arrived, they had already contacted a divemaster for me (Leo Maierhuber was wonderful). The area is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Now, I have added another thing to my Bucket List: returning to st martin chalets!
