There are many reasons for choosing Hiking in Austria

Due to its slightly out-of-the-way location from the rest of Austria, as well as its relatively over-looked status as a tourist destination, much of the natural scenery in Vorarlberg remains raw and untouched. This has helped the abundance of diverse flora and fauna, as well as the vast tracts of tree-lined alpine forests, tranquil and idyllic lakes, and towering snow-capped peaks remain pristine and beautiful, perfect for admiring whilst hiking.
