Sailboats on WolfgangseeActivity holidays in Austria

The last Ice Age left a wonderful legacy for visitors to Austria. Towering peaks, broad, flat-bottomed fertile valley floors, and beautiful lakelands that provide endless opportunities for exploring on a gentle activity holiday in Austria.

Walkers can take gentle routes past tiny hamlets of pretty frescoed houses and onion-domed churches set against a dramatic backdrop of rocky mountains or, with just a 400m-500m climb, follow Alpine paths with magnificent views of the jagged snow-capped mountain ranges all around. For cyclists and those looking for a relaxed activity holiday in Austria, our holidays offer spectacular views, gentle shoreline routes and lots of swimming opportunities and, on your rest days, boat trips, cable cars and fairytale cities await.

During the winter months the landscape is a mecca for cross country skiing. Austria has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and offers some of the finest and most extensive cross-country skiing in Europe, all surrounded by the dramatic mountain scenery of the rugged Zugspitze Alps. And the Austrian Tyrol is renowned for its exceptional snow cover all season long.
