Austria is famous for its clear mountain air and drinkwater quality lakes – join us and discover this stunning scenery for yourself. Grade - Medium

Shutterstock 33697633 Walk Through Beautiful Landscapes   Bottom

The hills are still alive in Austria! If you are looking for picture perfect scenery and fresh mountain air, Austria ticks the boxes. We are based in the charming and friendly Austrian resort of Kirchberg, nestled in a glorious setting in the heart of the beautiful Kitzbüheler Alps.

Ehrenbachhöhe

We take a trail through the woods to the “Bergschenk Krin” mountain restaurant where you can enjoy a quick coffee and cake stop, before continuing on to the top of the Ehrenbachhöhe mountain at 1880m above sea level - the views from here are spectacular. Our return to Kirchberg takes us through pine forests and over the resort’s ski slopes now wonderfully peaceful, apart from the occasional chime of an Alpine cowbell.

 

Gaisberg Summit

This challenging, but beautiful walk starts at the top station of Gaisberg chairlift. Here, we walk uphill to Barstattalm from where we take the mountain path up to the Gaisberg Summit – the views are stupendous! We traverse a ridge and follow a short steep path down over the Nagiller track back to the chairlift – from where you can either walk back, or take a ride if the calves have had enough

Labalm

Starting from Ebenau, this walk takes us through wonderful Tirol countryside. We pass by a waterfall and then walk along forest paths until we reach the Labalm mountain cabin. Enroute, its worth stopping at the “Kasplatzl” to see how the traditional mountain cheese that the area is renowned for is made. Enjoy some spectacular scenery as we stop for lunch before returning to Ebenau

Free Days

On your free days, there are plenty of other trails to explore, or perhaps take the bus to nearby Kitzbuhel with its beautiful medieval town centre crammed with shops and restaurants.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
There will be plenty for you to see and do during your own leisure time during the course of your holiday, full details of which will be given out at your Information Meeting by your Tour Leader with prices (depending on group size). Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you and explain where you will need to go but may not necessarily accompany you.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
