Austria is justifiably famous for its stunning alpine scenery. All of our wonderful walking adventures take place in the absolutely stunning ‘Lake District of Austria’ in the world famous Salzkammergut region, a favourite destination of former emperors and empresses, and ‘Sound of Music’ country too. The wonderful combination of the mountains of the Alps, scenic lakes and historical, traditional towns and villages of the Salzkammergut afford a breathtaking backdrop to a wide variety of walking opportunities.

Discover More About Austria

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, down to panoramic lakeside scenery.

The terrain varies from rolling hills and easy lakeside trails to rugged, steep mountain ranges. Accommodation is in charming, comfortable inns and guesthouses, with the opportunity to stay in dormitory-style alpine lodges, or enjoy superb four star hotels on our In Style walking holiday.

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.
