For picture-perfect landscapes coupled with an acute sense of tradition, look no further than our walking holidays in Austria. The local communities here have kept many of their old customs: the high pastures are still farmed, prize-winning Austrian cheeses are made in the mountains and traditional Austrian dress is often worn. Quaint refuges, cafés, restaurants and bars are dotted around the mountains and in the hamlets and villages, providing welcome refreshments during our walking holidays in Austria – as well as delicious cakes and strudels…
For many people, walking holidays in the Austrian Tyrol typify the best of the Alps: dramatic scenery with jagged, snow-capped mountains towering above lush, flower-filled meadows, and picturesque villages where geraniums spill brightly from the balconies of rustic wooden chalets. Of course, those same mountains are covered in glorious snow in winter, making Austria a superb destination for winter walking too!
Heading just a few hours east, the Austrian lakes offer an equally glorious mix of valley views, secluded beaches and local life. On rest days, the opportunities are endless – whether you want to try your hand at exhilarating water sports or meander through nearby fairy-tale cities, our walking holidays in Austria offer an unbeatable experience for everyone.

Accommodation was very good. Trip notes were accurate. Weather was unexpectedly cold and wet much of the time.
A wonderful experience walking and sightseeing in the Garfognana area, Tuscany. Staying at a picturesque, comfortable family run Agricultural Farmhouse. Very friendly, hardworking staff providing us with homemade food and wine. A friendly group of 12 and a very experienced and personable walk leader.
Better than walking in the Dolomites. Great variety and three climates in one mid-May week including snow. Hotel Torrecerredo is an ideal walkers hotel, clean, easy going, relaxed and good varied menu.
