The rugged lands of Upper Austria provide the perfect natural playground to explore via hiking, as it lies perfectly at the core of the Alps. Scattered across the region are snow-capped peaks, lush meadows and great winding hiking trails carved through spectacular scenery. Visit in the summer months from June to September for peak climbing conditions.
The landlocked, central European country of Austria is home to mostly mountainous terrain. Part of the European Union, it is bordered by Italy and Slovenia to the south, Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west, Germany and Czech Republic to the north, and Hungary and Slovakia to the east. The mountains play a central role in Austria’s geography, culture and customs, which include parts of the Central Eastern Alps, Northern Limestone Alps, and the Southern Limestone Alps.
An alpine climate dominates the country, given its largely mountainous terrain, and receives relatively high temperatures in the summer, averaging in the mid-20s.
