You can scale a mountain peak or go long-distance trekking, mountain hiking or for short walks, whatever you feel at ease with.

The scenery is truly breathtaking, from the sweet Austrian chalets with flower-filled window boxes to the amazing backdrop of The Tyrolean Alps, you won’t want to stop walking. You’ll come across forests, lakes and rivers on your travels and make sure to keep an eye out for some interesting wildlife too.

The views from the chair lift of Sondwennjoch from 1900 metres are simply stunning, not to mention Achensee and it’s lake and mountains.
