Wellness on a winter holiday

When the sun shines on the glittering blanket of snow, there’s only one thing you want to do: go out and enjoy nature in all its facets. Of course, you can do this best in the mountains, as here you will find deep snow-covered runs and perfectly groomed runs. As a winter sports fan, you can’t help it. You just have to strap on your skis, snowboard or snowshoes and out you go! Or are you more enthusiastic about winter hiking, do you love cross-country skiing or tobogganing? Of course, the Austrian Alps are ideally suited for this. But what about wellness on a winter holiday? We also take care of this in our resorts.

Enjoy with all your senses

After all, there is nothing better than sitting in a warm sauna when it is freezing cold outside. Or floating in the warm waters of an indoor pool while the snowflakes dance outside. Not only the contrasts from inside and outside as well as cold and warm fit together perfectly. The health aspects of wellness on a winter holiday also ensure that you will love this kind of getaway. Wellness is becoming more important every day the benefits are well known.

Going to the sauna relaxes your muscles and our metabolism accelerates, and by switching between the dry-hot air and the subsequent cooling, all your organs really take off. And you also strengthen the immune system. Especially in winter, when we are more susceptible to infections. The Sauna also makes you more beautiful. This is no joke. Due to the heat, the blood vessels dilate. This ensures that your skin is supplied with more blood. The skin looks rosy and fresh. Even problems falling asleep and headaches can vanish into thin air in the sauna. But make sure that you observe the most important rules of sauna.

But wellness is so much more than just going to the sauna. Soothing massages, cosmetic treatments and health treatments are also part of a wellness holiday in winter. In other respects, you should also listen to your body when choosing your accommodation for a relaxed winter holiday in Austria: the food must also be fantastic. Sounds complicated? But it’s not. Because all our VAYA resorts can be found in the most beautiful places in the Austrian Alps. And they offer you excellent cuisine as well as many opportunities to relax.
