St Anton ski holidays

St Anton is definitely one of our favourites. St Anton Am Arlberg is known as one of the best ski areas in the world with a legendary après-ski scene to boot. Steeped in history, it's often referred to as the 'cradle of skiing' after playing its part in inventing the sport.

St Anton village itself has heaps of charm and the famous après-ski bars on the slopes above the village rock from 3pm. The stunning scenery and charming village just add to the glamour of this special resort. 


As part of the mighty 305km Arlberg region, (which includes Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St Christoph) intermediate and advanced skiers will be able to really push themselves and then reward themselves after a big day on the mountain.

The village of St Anton has loads of charm and boasts a real Tirolean feel with onion-domed churches, loads of shopping and no cars in the centre. It's quite a large resort that’s spread out. Its choice of bars, shops and restaurants are exceptional.


The more lively bars that the area is famous for are dotted around the slopes above the village. If you’d like something more on the quieter side of things, there’s plenty of cosy restaurants and bars for you too. Or for something a bit different, head to the resort's wellness centre, complete with indoor pool so don't forget your swimming gear.

For the experienced, and for something a bit more gnarly, try a once-in-a-lifetime experience by taking a helicopter to the mountains near Lech to find untouched powder and some serious vertical descents. Experienced guides can be hired through the ski school.


St Anton is home to the luxurious Arlberg WellCom spa centre with indoor and outdoor heated pools, waterfalls, whirlpools, a children’s pool and fun slides. The wellness zone includes saunas, steam rooms, a fitness room and massage treatment rooms so you have no excuse to have aching muscles here!
