This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • leisurely walking amid magnificent lakes and mountain scenery
  • stay in iconic Hallstatt
  • easy access to high level walks
  • good mix of accommodation

To the east of Salzburg, in the shadow of the mighty Dachstein (2,995 metres), dramatic mountains plunge into sparkling blue lakes, creating almost fjord-like landscapes made all the more enchanting by the idyllic villages which clamber up the slopes above the lakes. Inviting paths lead alongside the water at the foot of the mountains, and cable cars give easy access to the high mountains, for gentle walks across meadows, surrounded by dramatic peaks.
The Laserer sisters at the Hotel Gosauerhof extended a particularly warm welcome and their kindness made us feel like guests in a private house and we cannot praise their service too highly!
Mr Fraser, Aberdeen
Of the region's many lakes, we have chosen Hallstättersee, which forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is crowned by the splendid village of Hallstatt, the jewel of the region. This is a traditional region, where the people continue to wear lederhosen and dirndls, and where typical Austrian fare, with an accent on fish from the lakes, is enjoyed.
