Self Guided Walking Holidays in Austria
Austria has many great attractions, including the legacy of the Hapsburg Empire in Vienna, the life and music of Mozart in Salzburg and the magnificent scenery of its alpine hinterland. Austria's diversity shines not only through its landscape but through its population. Due to its central location in the heart of Europe and its vibrant history, a cross-section of cultures flow together and are combined throughout the country.
Our self-guided walking holiday in Austria is focussed around the Dachstein and Gosaukamm Mountains where you will find some of the most dramatic of Austrian alpine scenery. The lower slopes of alpine pasture are dotted with picturesque lakes and villages including gorgeous Halstatt, whilst the high triangular mountaintops are smothered with glacial ice.
Our self-guided walking holidays are fully flexible which means you can normally start your walk on any day during the season and customise by adding extra days for resting or sightseeing. As you're walking independently, you're free to follow the trail at your own pace. You set your own pace as you are not limited by the constraints of group travel. You are free to shorten or lengthen your walk as the terrain permits and can even take a day off, although you may need to travel onto your next accommodation by taxi or public transport in order to do so. As long as you are reasonably active you will be able to find a suitable tour and all of our tours are graded to help you choose the right walk for you.
How it works
From route notes and maps, to accommodation and luggage transfers - you're never on your own.
At the end of a day's walk you will be well looked after in our comfortable, boutique accommodation.
