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 four-star 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.

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: 18km
    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. Park your bikes and enjoy a section of riverside gorge walking before heading up to a mountain hut for lunch (up to 3 hours return) where you can feast on truly scrumptious Apfelstrudel washed down with lashings of the local lemonade, Almdudler, which translates as ‘tootle round the mountain pastures’. This narrow, winding gorge, through which the Leutascher Ache river rushes on its way to cross the German border, is a secret paradise waiting to be discovered. The river has created a natural water play area which is perfect for cooling off on a hot summer’s day.
  • Cycle ride from Ober Weidach: 22km
    Today, enjoy another cycle to the eastern end of the valley via forest tracks and through typical Alpine flower meadows. 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 (3km; optional) 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.
  • Walk from Ober Weidach to Mösern: 12km
    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)
  • 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.
  • Free day Mösern
    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: 6km, 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.

    Wildsee: 10km, 2hrs
    Follow the Stations of the Cross to family-friendly Seefeld before looking out for red squirrel and deer around the shores of Wildsee.

    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
    From Seefeld you can take the Rosshütte funicular and cable cars up into the mountains to reach the Seefelder Joch at 2,060 metres and Harmelekopf at 2,134 metres. Enjoy the fabulous far-reaching views, a just reward for your efforts.
 

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.

FAQs

If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help.
  • 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.)
  • You do need to make sure you’re covered, because it’s you who is responsible for any damage to or loss of the bike during the holiday. You should always lock it (preferably to an immovable object) and remove any easy-to-steal accessories when leaving it unattended. The travel insurance policy that we offer covers you for loss and damage (provided you’ve locked or stored it appropriately). If you are arranging your own insurance, but it doesn’t cover bikes, we can provide bike-only cover for £19 per person. More details >
  • 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 and Morocco, there’s a £30 booking fee per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). For India and Nepal, the booking fee is £50 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 to discuss your plans.
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted 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 buy our policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK and EU residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.
  • 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 travelling after 31 October 2019, see the Brexit question below for more information). 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 can be found through the following NHS link: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/advice/ You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). UK citizens should also obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) by applying at a Post Office or at www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC allows reciprocal health care but should not be seen as a substitute for travel insurance. EHICs may cease to be valid in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
  • (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.
  • Even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, it’s been confirmed that flights will continue as normal and that you won’t need a visa to go on holiday (the limit on stays is 90 days). What you will need if there’s no deal is a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your arrival (extra months added because you renewed your passport early do not count) and adequate travel insurance to cover you for accidents and illness in case reciprocal health deals are suspended. If you are driving while on holiday, you will probably need an International Driving Permit (plus a Green Card if you are taking your own car to Europe). More information >
  • The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
    If you live outside the UK, see our essential travel information page for a list of relevant websites.
