Tyrol Adventure

A fun-filled Alpine playground
 
Enjoy some 'together time' as you discover the beautiful Leutasch Valley. This self-guided family activity holiday features two family-friendly hotels, both with an indoor pool. Walk and cycle in picturesque Alpine scenery, with options to explore a dramatic gorge, take a cable car into the high mountains, visit Innsbruck and swim in rivers and lakes.
 

Holiday information

 

A family activity holiday in the Tyrol

Head to this glorious part of the Austrian Tyrol and not only will you have the chance to follow designated cycle routes along the Leutasch Valley, through pretty villages, but you will also be able to strike out on foot into the surrounding mountains on flexible routes along well-waymarked paths to make a very varied holiday.
But it’s not just about having fun together in the great outdoors. Another highlight is experiencing the very best of the hospitality for which the Tyrol is renowned. Our two hotels here are real family affairs: places where, over the years, different generations have created a friendly, convivial atmosphere.
 

2021

We are unable to offer this holiday in 2021, but hope to be able to do so again in 2022, with a slightly revised itinerary.

Itinerary

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • The average maximum daytime temperatures and monthly rainfall relate to the nearest weather station and are intended as a guide only.

    The best time for alpine flowers is June and early July. At lower levels the flowers bloom slightly earlier.

    mm 46 45 52 66 100 120 133 124 82 57 59 49
  • Arrival in Ober Weidach
    Night 1: at Hotel Kristall (the first of three nights here).
    As your first night’s accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of exploring.
  • Cycle ride from Ober Weidach: 17.5km
    It is just a 5-minute walk to the cycle shop. Once you have collected your bikes, you can explore the far western reaches of the valley and the tranquil Gaistalalm on a gentle circuit along pretty village lanes and forest tracks. Before returning to Ober Weidach, you have the opportunity to call into a leisure centre with both outdoor and indoor swimming facilities.
    Cycle on forest tracks
    Circular ride from Ober Weidach: 17.5km
  • Cycle ride from Ober Weidach: 20.5km + 3.5km gorge walk
    Today's cycle leads you to the eastern end of the valley on a level riverside path. At the head of the valley, leave your bikes aside and enter the ghostly Geisterklamm or ‘Spirit Gorge’ on foot. Follow a thrilling gorge walk along man-made walkways and bridges that crosses the border into Germany where you can relax over lunch at one of the many restaurants and cafés in the pretty frescoed town of Mittenwald. In the afternoon, catch the bus back to your bikes (don't forget where you left them!) and cycle back to Ober Weidach.
    The Geisterklamm
    Cycle ride from Ober Weidach: 10.5km
    3.5km gorge walk
    Cycle ride back to Ober Weidach: 10km
  • Walk from Ober Weidach to Mösern: 11.5km, 4.5hrs
    Leaving the symbolic chapels of the Leutasch Valley behind, you head off on foot through meadows and forest via Lottensee (a 'see' is usually a lake, but this is more of a marsh!) to the village of Mösern, perched on the edge of the plateau, with views down to the River Inn in the valley far below. You reach the Hotel Inntaler Hof, your base for the next three nights, in front of which is the iconic Friedensglocke or 'Peace Bell'. (12km)
    En route to Mösern
    Walk from Ober Weidach to Mösern: 11.5km
  • Free day in Mösern
    Mösern is a great place to spend a few days as there is so much to do. For variety, you'll probably want a day of sightseeing today, but we also offer a choice of walks (see Day 5).

    Innsbruck
    To reach historic Innsbruck, take a bus to Seefeld and then a train to the city (pay locally). As well as exploring the attractive city centre, you could visit the Alpenzoo, home to over 150 species which are (or have been at some point) native to the Alps. Alternatively, one of the most unusual attractions in Innsbruck is Swarovski Crystal Worlds, an artistic and imaginative theme park/shopping experience and one of Austria's most popular attractions. Highlights for adults are the Giant's Chamber of Wonders and the gardens with their Crystal Cloud and Mirror Pool, whilst for children there's an innovative play tower on four levels, creative outdoor play areas and a hedge maze in the shape of a hand.

    Olympiaregion Seefeld
    The Olympiaregion Seefeld (the name given for the whole area around Seefeld) is a family playground waiting to be explored. Seefeld itself boasts a large swimming pool complex with an indoor-outdoor pool and waterslides. From the end of June until the end of August, the tourist office organises a comprehensive Kinderprogramm at a variety of venues to entertain the kids.

    Relaxing at the hotel
    You may, of course, prefer to relax at the hotel, splashing about in the indoor pool, enjoying a game of tennis or making the most of the kids' facilities, which include a trampoline, mini football goals and table tennis. The spa is pretty good too! And if you fancy a game of golf, you qualify for discounted green fees at the nearby Golf Spielplatz in Seefeld.
    Enjoy an ice-cream on the hotel terrace

  • Choice of routes from Mösern: 5km or 14km
    If you'd like a final walk, there are a number of rewarding and leisurely routes up to 14 kilometres that start from the hotel.

    Möserer Lake: 5km, 2hrs
    Amble along the Peace Bell Trail to the tranquil shores of the Möserer Lake, reputedly the warmest lake in the Tyrol. Have a swim, then enjoy lunch at the handily located Möserer Seestube.

    Gschwandtkopf: 14km, 4.5hrs
    This more demanding route ascends steadily to the summit of Gschwandtkopf at 1,500 metres, where you are rewarded with a glorious 360-degree panorama. Pause for refreshments on the panoramic terrace of the aptly named Sonnenalm, perhaps, then descend to Seefeld and return to Mösern through a mixture of meadows and forest.

    Seefelder Joch
    For fabulous far-reaching views, take the Rosshütte funicular and cable cars from Seefeld up into the mountains to reach the Seefelder Joch at 2,060 metres and Harmelekopf at 2,134 metres.
    Möserer Lake walk: 5km
    Gschwandtkopf walk: 14km
 

Accommodation

You will find a warm welcome at both hotels, and excellent facilities too – both have an indoor pool and spa.
Please note: most rooms in Austrian hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

FAQs

If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help. You might also find our General FAQs section helpful.
  • If your holiday plans go awry because of Coronavirus, rest assured that we’ll do right by you. Since the start of the pandemic, our flexible booking policy and prompt issuing of refunds to customers who prefer not to defer their holiday have earned us high praise in the national press.
  • We sincerely hope that your holiday experience will be as enjoyable as it would have been before the pandemic – cycling holidays are ideal in these times of social distancing, and we’re not operating holidays if the key highlights can no longer be delivered – but, naturally, there will be some changes to ensure your and other people’s safety.
    Your holiday experience: what to expect >
    Safety measures being taken by hoteliers & others >
  • No, we don't set age limits. You are best placed to judge if your child(ren) can cope with the demands of the holiday and be confident on roads next to traffic on occasions.
  • For adults, our chosen bike rental shop will provide you with a city bike with a basket on the rear and a lock.
    For children, we will be happy to arrange hire of children’s mountain bikes, a tag-along, trailer or child seat. Helmets are provided (use of which is obligatory for under 12s in Austria).
  • We’ll send you route notes and maps 2-3 weeks before your holiday. The route notes not only contain directions to get from hotel to hotel, but also include practical information about places of interest and eateries along each route, plus cultural information about the area. On mornings when you are moving between hotels, you leave your luggage in reception as you leave, and it will be transferred ahead to your next accommodation so that all you need to take with you are a camera, sun cream, drinks, food and waterproofs.
  • Yes, we will provide GPX tracks for this holiday prior to departure so that you can follow your route on your smartphone or dedicated GPS device if you wish. (We also provide maps and our tried-and-tested route notes, which remain the principal means of navigation).
  • Bike insurance is not included in the price of our cycling holidays, and unfortunately we can't supply such insurance. Some general travel insurance policies can or do provide cover for rented bikes, so it's worth seeing if your policy is one of these. The most important thing is to ensure that you take good care of your bike (you are responsible for damage to or loss of it while it is hired to you), always being careful to lock it up, ideally to an immovable object, and removing all easy-to-steal accessories whenever you leave it unattended.
  • We can book a wide range of airlines and routes from the UK. As well as being more convenient for you to book all elements of your holiday together, it also means that we’ll accept liability for your travel arrangements, so if things go wrong, such as the airline going bust, we’ll make suitable alternative arrangements for you. For Europe, there’s a £35 booking fee per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). For India and Nepal, the booking fee is £60 per person. More information on flights >
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact Abi and Lizzie to discuss your plans.
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted to book your own flights to London (or elsewhere in the UK), we can make all onward travel arrangements (including flights) from there. Alternatively, if you are booking your own flights to an airport in continental Europe that’s appropriate for your holiday, we can book onward rail travel and/or taxis. More information about how we can tailor holidays for customers outside the UK >
  • Since our holidays are self-guided, we recommend calling us for a chat about your plans before making a booking, especially if it’s the first time you’ve booked with us.
    The price panel shows the supplement for a single room and also the single traveller charge (this covers (luggage) transfers and other costs which are usually shared between two people).
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to take out our recommended travel insurance policy (if you live outside the UK you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    We'll ask you for the details of your policy (insurer, policy number and medical emergency phone number) so that we can help out if the worst happens while you are on holiday. It's up to you, though, to check that your policy covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs; we don't check alternative policies.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Austria, but not a visa. If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). You should also apply for a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) if your EHIC has expired (if you have a still-valid EHIC, you can use this until it expires).
  • (Austrian) German is the most commonly spoken language. The currency is the Euro. Austrian time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • For information on the practicalities of travel now that the UK is no longer part of the European Union, visit www.gov.uk/visit-europe-1-january-2021.

    At Inntravel we work in close partnership with our hoteliers, taxi drivers and other local suppliers to provide our self-guided holidays directly to you. We are entirely confident that you will continue to receive the usual warm welcome from them, regardless of what is happening in the European political sphere.
  • The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
