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.
The climate is pleasant for late spring, summer, and fall. The winter and early spring can be cold and have adverse weather, and higher altitudes tend to have more volatile weather patterns.
Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna, and Graz are all easy stops for regional and international flights. They transfer to other Alpine destinations in Arlberg and Tyrol. Train service is efficient and straightforward from most major European cities, as well.
May through October are all phenomenal months for a hike in the Austrian Alps!
