Austria
Ramblers Worldwide Holidays welcomes you into the heart of our small, friendly groups for a walk in Austria. Our experienced guides guarantee that enthusiasts will discover the true nature of the country. They’ll lead you off the beaten track for an authentic native experience which you can enjoy in the security and confidence of their trustworthy knowledge.

While walking Austria, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays’ guests will uncover an alpine haven that comes in many forms: scattered woodlands, crisp mountain air and crystal clear icy streams fed by permanent snows. We’ll lead you on delicious paths through idyllic countryside to cultural centres such as Innsbruck.

Fantastic Walking in Austria


Hiking from Alpbach
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.
