The hotel was charmingly traditional 'Austrian'. The food was really excellent. The buffet breakfast was very good, and plentiful. The 4 course evening meals were of a surprisingly high standard, with a good choice of main course. The drinks were reasonably priced.
But of course, the main reason for the trip was to experience interesting and challenging treks through beautiful countryside. The 6 treks exceeded my best expectations, and were truly memorable. Each one was physically challenging, but manageable, with time taken out to catch our breath and enjoy the spectacular views in every direction! The WOW factor was very high! The trek, on the last day, to the highest peak that we achieved, was mind-blowing wonderful. The weather was fine and clear, and from the peak, we could see a 360* panoramic view of mountains over many miles. It was FANTASTIC. The The friendly, humorous and efficient leadership of Bob and Chris made every day a pleasure. They clearly love the area, and enjoy sharing their knowledge with the Exodus groups. They were both excellent. The 11 of us, all strangers to each other on Day 1, were soon getting on like old friends. To have a choice of a 'B' or 'C' category trek each day was reassuring. Although I managed the 'C' trek every day, it was good to know that I could have taken it a bit easier on some of the days, had I wanted to.
Every aspect of this trip was EXCELLENT. I would recommend this holiday to any fit person, and also praise the efficiency of Exodus. The company commitment to a 'green' and environmentally responsible approach is also very good.
