Discover the high passes and glistening lakes of Salzburg's Ten Lakes region on foot at your own pace
Rugged peaks tower next to lovely, forest-covered hills and idyllic lakes on this one week self-guided holiday in Austria. Located less than an hour from Salzburg the magnificent Salzkammergut and its ten lakes have been the playground for Salzburg’s residents for centuries. They have welcomed royalty, the musical genius Mozart and even the Von Trapp’s in the Sound of Music. Now they welcome you, as you follow the fantastic mountain trails to the colourful spa and salt mining villages of Fuschl, Mondsee, Bad Ischl, and Halstatt. Walking an average of 20km per day this trip offers more of a challenge than our grade 2: Walking in Austria holiday. This is a trip for those that prefer to spend more time on the trail than visiting the towns below. Although you will of course still have plenty of time to enjoy a bowl of Goulash and a slice of tasty apfelstrudel in the welcoming ‘alms’ along the way. And at the end of each day you can look forward to the opportunity to take a dip in one of the glistening lakes and the welcoming hospitality of our family run 3* hotels and Gasthofs. Experience a true slice of heaven, otherwise known as Austria!
