Holidays to Austria
Austria Activity & Adventure Holidays with Exodus.
For many people an adventure 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. The well-established network of Tyrolean mountain huts allows you to keep to the hills without ever needing to return to so-called civilization. This is one of the main reasons why walking holidays in Austria are so popular. Dotted around the mountains of the Austrian Tyrol and in the hamlets and villages are refuges, Austrian cafes, restaurants and bars all providing welcome refreshment including some wicked cakes and strudels. The local community preserves 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 cross country skiing in Austria a superb destination to spend a winter week!
