Holiday Highlights

See what's planned

  • A choice of different grades of walking on selective dates where we may reach ridges and peaks around 2000m.
  • Enjoy a spectacular mountainous world, walking in the soaring Karwendel and Rofan ranges on either side of the Achensee, the largest lake in the Tirol.
  • Explore the pretty Tirolean village of Achenkirch at 930m.
  • Make use of the Rofan and Karwendel cable cars at the southern end of the lake to experience high-level walks.
  • Travel with ease using the local Achensee Card, with free or discounted use of the local cable cars and buses.
  • Stay in a four star family run hotel in the centre of Achenkirch, a perfect location for our holiday.

Our holiday walking grades


Grade 6

Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent.

These walks are in more remote areas such as Andorra or northern Portugal.

Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.


Grade 8

Hard mountain walking every day in the Alps, the Balkans and the Pyrenees, with long ascents, descents and scrambling.

Stamina and a good head for heights are essential.

Distances will probably not exceed 12 miles, but cumulative ascents and descents will normally be between 1000 and 1500m each day.
