10 Lakes Salzkammergut 8-day Walking Tour Level 3
Ragged peaks tower next to lovely, forest covered hills, both hiding away idyllic mountain lakes. Stop and glance around – take in breathtaking scenery and unspoilt nature. Our trekking route crosses Austrian Salzkammergut from the West to the East. Ten lakes more or less famous as e.g. Lake Wolfgangsee, Mondsee, Irrsee, Fuschlsee and stop at some of the best known highlights of the Region: the White Horse Inn in St. Wolfgang, Imperial summer residence in Bad Ischl and the 'most beautiful place on a lake' Hallstatt are attractive highlights during your hike. A special excursion touches lovely Ausseerland, a gem of Salzkammergut where time seems to pass slower than everywhere else.
You mainly walk along lakes and across alpine pastures. Several low summits offer scenic views and therefore you should be surefooted. A good fitness level for ascents and longer walking stages up to 6 hours are required.
