Rauris is a picturesque, old goldminers' valley with fresh clean air and crystal clear winters, situated in the Hohe Tauern National Park between the Gastein valley and Zell am See - amongst some of the highest mountains in Austria. A well-kept secret, the pretty alpine village of Rauris is a great destination for beginners, for mixed level groups of skiers and snowboarders and for families.
The destination has pretty gentle terrain and activities away from the slopes such as flood lit tobogganing. The resort has childcare facilities as well as wellness / spa facilities for the adults to relax and rejuvenate.
Take in the atmosphere with cosy mountain huts, après ski bars and lively umbrella bars.

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
