The Hills Are Alive in Austria

Listen to the rumbling of a thundering, majestic waterfall. Watch as colorful flowers blossom and animals awaken with a gentle sunrise during the revitalizing summer season in the Austrian Alps. Snow-capped mountains, intricate cave systems, and waterfalls make Austria one of the premier family adventure vacations.

Ride along the waterside to a backdrop of glacier-carved gorges that have been around for thousands of years. Watch the assorted vegetation and fauna blossom to life in the summer in the Austrian Alps. Cycle through the towns of Mittersill and Zell past expansive lakes and stop to remember the sound of skipping rocks – a sound you thought was long lost in the memories of your childhood. For a unique sort of experience, take a ride down a wooden slide in a 7,000 year old underground salt mine.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, hiking Salzach Valley will bring you to a thrilling tandem paraglide ride. At the end of the day, enjoy a feast of strudel made from trout and accompanied by the lemony mousse at Obauer restaurant.

Adventures to Austria are sure to please children and adults alike. Children will delight in the castles that look like a fairytale come to life, and everyone will appreciate the spectacular view while high in cable cars on the way to Schmittenhöhe. The outstanding lake and mountain views at the Schmittenhohe are a photographer’s dream. After spending the day taking in magnificent views of nature, take a relaxing dip in a thermal tub.
