KAPRUN SKIING & SNOWBOARDING HOLIDAYS

 

Luxury Ski Holidays In Kaprun

Kaprun, officially Kaprun-Zell am See, lies in the Austrian state of Salzburg and is one of the three resorts of the Europa Sport Region. When considering where to base yourself its worth noting that Kaprun and Zell am See are quite different in character. Kaprun has bags of character and uncommercialised. Zell am See is a larger town with some nice shopping areas and places but less mountain village charm or the super small hotels and apartments that Kaprun offers.
