Fantastic Walking in Austria
Spectacular walking in the Austrian Tirol.
Surrounded by a diverse and beautiful chain of mountain peaks, ridges and remote side valleys, the scope of walks from Alpbach is almost limitless. We enjoy the high places with panoramic views, but easier days too with lower level walks to flower-filled meadows, wide ridges, isolated lakes, hamlets, and the spectacular Kundl Gorge.
Wonderful hiking in Austria from our 4 star spa hotel in Ladis, Austria
One and two week guided walking holidays in Austria’s Upper Inn Valley. Ladis rests on the western slopes of the Upper Inn Valley, at a height of nearly 1200m, on what the locals call the ‘sunshine terrace’. We can use chairlifts and cable cars to get up to the Komperdell ridge and walk by the Weisssee glacier; or try a tougher walk such as the Furgler.
The perfect mountain walking holiday in Austria
A fortnight in the picturesque Stubai valley has everything you could wish from a summer holiday in the Alps. Our base is Fulpmes, just a short journey through the mountains from the beautiful city of Innsbruck. The good local buses and cable car system allow us to fully explore the area, whatever grade of walking is chosen.
A wealth of alpine walking in Austria's Salzburgerland
NEW Maria Alm is in the Hochkönig region of Austria, in the Salzburgerland close to the border with Germany. The valley is dominated by the rocky peaks of the Hochkönig Massif which provides a wonderful backdrop for much of the walking in this area. The valley boasts 349km of hiking paths which are well marked and well maintained. The variety of walking is superb, including forest paths, pastureland and higher mountain trails.
From the Grossglockner to Lake Millstatt.
NEW To one side of you lies the glacier of the Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain. Over the mountains lies Lake Millstatt in the heart of Austria’s southern lake district. In between are thirteen days of splendid alpine walking as we follow the first part of the long distance Alps to the Adriatic Trail.
A classic mountain hutting holiday through the Austrian and German Alps.
Our route wends its way through several mountain ranges, including the Wilder Kaiser, Zahmer Kaiser, Kitzbühler Alpen including the famous Hahnenkamm (of Franz Klammer fame), Leoganger Steinberge and Steinernes Meer. It culminates beneath the mighty Watzmann range, with many options for extra peaks, energy levels and time permitting.
A trek through the Karwendel and Rofan Mountains
NEW The Adlerweg crosses the peaks and ridges of the Tirol from St Johann in the east to St Anton am Arlberg in the west. It is a wild high-level route. We have chosen a two week central section through the Rofan and Karwendel mountains which covers some of the very best walking, starting in Kufstein on the border with Germany, and ending in Innsbruck, the capital of the Austrian Alps.
A trek between Austrian Mountain Farms
NEW The Salzburger Almenweg is a 350km trail linking 120 of the over 500 Almen in the Salzburg area. We have chosen the first 160km of this trail enabling you to savour the delight of discovering the mountain farmer’s simple way of life – a blend of tradition, farming and tourism.
