Austria is classic Alpine beauty – expect staggering mountains with incredible vistas to match

Adventure Holidays in Austria

From dramatic scenery with jagged, snow-capped mountains towering above lush, to flower-filled meadows, and picturesque villages where geraniums spill brightly from the balconies of rustic wooden chalets, and gentle cycling rides through valleys dotted with fairytale castles, there are so many different kinds of adventures on offer in Austria. In the Alps, the well-established network of Tyrolean mountain huts allows you to keep to the hills without ever needing to return to so-called civilization. This is one of the main reasons why Walking Holidays in Austria are so popular. Or you could choose to cycle along a dedicated route from the culturally rich city of Vienna to Passau in Germany and see castles and ruins. Or you could enjoy meandering rides along the Danube from Austria to Hungary. Whichever route you choose, you'll get to experience all the scenery Austria has to offer.

In focus: the Austrian Tyrol

Dotted around the mountains of the Austrian Tyrol and in the hamlets and villages are refuges, Austrian cafes, restaurants and bars all providing welcome refreshment including some wicked cakes and strudels. The local community preserves many of the old traditions - the high pastures are still farmed, prize-winning Austrian cheeses are made in the mountains, and traditional Austrian dress is often worn. Of course, in the winter the same mountains are covered in snow making cross country skiing in Austria a superb destination to spend a Winter Holiday.
