Austria Walking & Trekking Holidays
For many people a walking holiday in the Austrian Tyrol typifies the best of the Alps: dramatic scenery with jagged, snow-capped mountains towering above lush, flower-filled meadows, and picturesque villages where geraniums spill brightly from the balconies of rustic wooden chalets. Quaint refuges, Austrian cafes, restaurants and bars are dotted around the mountains and in the hamlets and villages and provide welcome refreshments during our walks, as well as some delicious cakes and strudels. The local communities have kept many of the old traditions - the high pastures are still farmed, prize-winning Austrian cheeses are made in the mountains, and traditional Austrian dress is often worn. Of course, in the winter the same mountains are covered in snow, making Austria a superb destination for winter walking!
