Soft mobility - SAMO

Sustainability and environmental awareness have long been crucial elements of the Alpine lifestyle. Werfenweng has been a leader in environmentally-friendly tourism since 1997, when the village introduced the concept of “SAMO”, or Soft Mobility, for visitors and locals alike. SAMO offers the chance to trade the use of your private or hire car for a whole spectrum of more environmentally-sound options. This includes free transfers from the railway station to Wood Ridge, or free use of the local shuttle taxi; ideal when you want to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine with dinner.

The SAMO - Card

Guests who choose to take part in the SAMO scheme can also try out a range of green private transport options, including electric bikes and buggies, as well as gas-powered and electric cars, Segways and scooters.


Furthermore, the SAMO system offers a whole programme of extra activities, such as Nordic skiing, horse-drawn sledge-rides and winter sports in the cold months, and excursions, mountain walks and cultural activities in the summer.


So why not take a holiday from driving as well? Contact us for further details on how to make your break at Wood Ridge even more relaxed and environmentally-friendly with SAMO.
