Secrets of Lungau

Lungau is recognised for its natural beauty by UNESCO who have designated it a Man and Biosphere Reserve. It's impossible not to talk about Lungau without singing its praises, it is one of the finest Alpine regions and packed full of nature and wildlife with over 60 mountain lakes, intact moor landscapes and towering peaks, which is why it has UNESCO Biosphere status.

Winter in the mountains – Ski area Obertauern – st martin chalets

The UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Region of Lungau

One of the most unique regions in the European Alps!

Man and the Biosphere: Once the snows have receded and the days get longer, nature puts on an unbelievable show of colour and wildlife, locals are busy at work tending their land and enjoying their cultural festivals. The air is cool, clean and crisp and you can see for miles and miles. Walk up the mountains to hidden crystal lakes or hike through undisturbed forests, listening to the birdcalls in springtime, or even the rutting calls of majestic stags in September and October.

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!
