In brief: The tour runs mainly on a hiking trail through the Almenwelt Lofer. In the last section of the ascent there are a few shorter passages to overcome where sure-footedness is needed and possibly the use of hands to scramble. The path is not exposed at any point, nor is there a danger of falling. The way back also follows hiking paths or forest roads but is much more relaxed over a mountain ridge. Refreshments are available at the Alpengasthof Schönblick or the Restaurant Soderkaser at the end of the tour near the cable-car station.
Tour highlights: The Almenwelt Lofer with its rustic alm huts and countless cows.... and of course the summit experience on Grubhörndl. Don't forget a summit photo and an entry in the summit book ;) There is also a large playground located near the mountain station of the Almbahn II.
The tour is part of “Hiking with Kids” in the Salzburger Saalachtal. The duration and difficulty are suitable for children/families.
