FAQs: Hiking in Austrian Alps

What should I know about Hiking Austrian Alps?

Austria is a cultural treasure trove of incredible natural beauty. While it covers a bit of varied terrain and landscapes, the country is mostly dominated by the Alps, particularly in its western, central, and southwestern regions.

Though hiking and trekking season tends to fall outside of traditional snow sports, the rise of mountain biking and the popularity of rock climbing and mountaineering allow it to intertwine with other popular outdoor activities. The Austrian Alps are one of the best European locations for a multi-adventure program.

Each region has its own distinct culture, so enriching your program through immersion is highly recommended to make the most of your trip.

Why should I choose Austrian Alps for my Hiking adventure?

Extended Hikes!

The biggest problem with a day hike is often that it only lasts a day. This is rarely the problem in the Austrian Alps. You can enjoy week-long trips from a variety of different cities, like St. Anton, Innsbruck, Kitzbuhel, and basically anywhere in Tyrol. Hiking and trekking across the Alps is arguably the best way to discover Austria.

Manicured Trails!

While they may not feature garden art, the hiking routes through the Austrian Alps and generally well-marked. A certified local guide can easily craft a course through the stunning scenery of the Alps thanks to the efficient signage, which means you get a program that is tailor-made for your needs and abilities. For beginners and veterans alike, this is a definite plus.

Fascinating Culture and Beauty!

The communities that have developed over time throughout Austria have a strong connection to the land, and with good reason. Mixing glacier routes with remarkable architecture isn't just possible, it's nearly guaranteed. If you like pastures and meadows, there are endless possibilities in the southern parts of the country. Enjoy a traditional hut-to-hut hike for a hearty Austrian Alpine experience!

What people are saying about Hiking | Austrian Alps



Explore-Share took advantage of my inexperience. I had asked for a beginner level trip, instead, they recommended me a rather advanced trip. Neither Explore-Share nor the guide were forthcoming with information until the very last moment. The guide sold my participation to another outfit about a week before the trip. Neither Explore-Share neither the guide are trustworthy and can be relied upon in making arrangements.
