Salzkammergut

A very fulfilling walking trip through nature and beautiful towns We enjoyed our walking trip around the lakes in Austria. We liked very much that the paths all had a different characteristic in nature. We enjoyed the Pilgrimage path and learned about St. Wolfgang, rang the bell in his church. Then walked from one town to the next, following the rivers and did some shopping and were fascinated by the natural beauty from the Schafberg Mountain on one day and enjoyed the caves another day. I would recommend that you take the mountain express to Schafberg Mountain in St. Wolfgang and visit the ice cave near Hallstatt. I definitely recommend this route to anybody enjoying walking.

Bad Ischl

Another great walking tour Excellent routes and detailed illustrated guide book made for stress free walking. Two nights at each destination worked well and was more relaxing than packing up everyday. Scenery was stunning and there were plenty of places to visit nearby, especially on our free day. All hotels were good but two were excellent with good restaurants.

lake

We had a wonderful time. So well organised, the hotels were lovely and very luxurious, the food was great and choosing the easy grade was the perfection option for carrying our child. We finish each afternoon with a big smile on our face and the family connection time was so special. The routing markers and clue card were superb ( we didn’t fight about getting lost ) and I would recommend your tour to everyone. - June 2022
