Fancy a holiday far from the hustle and bustle of the hoarding masses, but don’t want to compromise the picture-postcard views? With snow-capped mountains, fresh air you can taste, and lush, unspoilt countryside, Austria provides more than a few of our favourite things…
Maria Von Trapp’s classic line, ‘climb every mountain’ may put some of you off the Alpine region of Austria. With a staggering 62% of this country made up of the impressive Alps, it’s certainly a destination that is heavily dominated by these beautiful mountains. However, luckily for you, our leisure trips in this region remain distinctly rooted in the breath-taking foothills of the Alps – phew!
As well as dramatic peaks to admire as your backdrop, these valleys are also home to some of Europe’s most spectacular and renowned lakes – perfect for a post ride dip, or a picturesque picnic pit stop! Want to find out more? Each of our trips to Austria explores a unique slice of this natural wonderland and with leisure and family options for all of our trips featured, there’s plenty of opportunity for all to enjoy.
