French Alps Circuit

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday. The Queryras region is fantastic, the walking was challenging but within our capabilities & we loved it. The accommodation was generally better than we expected and the food throughout was excellent. We would highly recommend this holiday to anybody wanting a wonderful walking holiday. Thank you!

Austrian Lakes Walk

The UNESCO World Heritage listed Salzkammergut alpine region of Austria encompasses 76 crystal clear lakes, the Dachstein Glacier, lush summer meadows and impressive rock faces up to 3000 vertical metres high. During this inspiring walk, there is ample time to appreciate the natural beauty of the region and the alpine villages of wooden chalets decorated with colourful window boxes while at night you will enjoy the warm hospitality of your hosts. Staying in pensions and small hotels, you can relax and enjoy the satisfying cuisine typical of the region. There will be opportunities to sight fauna including ibex, chamois and marmot along with numerous butterfly species which are endemic to these high alpine meadows.
