The terrain varies from rolling hills and easy lakeside trails to rugged, steep mountain ranges.
"The Dachstein Circuit was one of the best walking and hiking trips we've ever been on. In addition to the superb quality and variety of the walking, staying with a farming family and drinking schnapps made from pine cones from the forest outside is something we'll remember for a long time!" Nicholas Stewart, Dachstein Alpine Trek
Walks Worldwide offers a range of trips to Austria, each with varying degrees of difficulty. Trek into the realms of jagged peaks and glaciers over the impressive Dachstein Massif for a more challenging hike, follow less demanding lakeside trails interspersed with charming villages or enjoy a balance of moderate to demanding walks over mountain passes, across meadows and plateaux and down to panoramic lakeside scenery. Accommodation is in charming, comfortable inns and guesthouses with the opportunity to stay in dormitory-style Alpine Lodges, or enjoy superb 4* hotels on our In Style trip.
The best time of year to visit Austria is from May to September ? Austrian summers are reliably warm but not overpowering, and the Alpine region will be slightly cooler.
