View Dates & Prices

From hiking through lush valleys, gazing up at towering mountains, or strolling through quaint towns, the Tyrolean Alps in Austria will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Join us in Kitzbuhel for 7 nights and experience a real walker’s paradise. Enjoy breath-taking views, wide alpine pastures, rolling grass hills and impressive waterfalls over four walking days. As well as exploring the picturesque scenery of the Alps, you can embrace the musical history of Salzburg and enjoy a fascinating excursion to magnificent Munich.

There will be a choice of two walks on each of the walking days, one moderate option and the other challenging.

Please note that it is not unusual to have snow in Kitzbuhel in May. This may cause some difficulties when walking to a certain height. In case of adverse weather conditions your local expert guide will take clients through alternative routes.

Holiday highlights

Kitzbuhel
Kitzbuhel, the sports capital in the heart of the Alps, combines tradition and an active lifestyle. It is a mecca for those who want to enjoy the great outdoors in the most scenic of settings. In the winter it is a popular ski resort and in summer the same ski-lifts and facilities are used by hikers, mountain bike enthusiasts as well as those who just want to take in the spectacular views.
Tyrol
Tyrol is famous for its magnificent landscapes, majestic peaks and natural wonders. It also has a rich cultural heritage, where beloved Alpine traditions are still part of everyday life.
Salzburg

Surrounded by incredible Alpine scenery, Salzburg is a fairy-tale city. Salzburg literally means ‘Salt Fortress’, referring to the salt barges that travelled up the Salzach River and stopped there to pay their tolls.

Munich
Munich is a fascinating city offering a great diversity of cultural and architectural attractions. The name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning "by the monks" and is the home of ‘Oktoberfest’, the biggest festival on the German calendar.
