  • The accommodation and quality of food was excellent for the whole trip. The booklet outlining where to go was very detailed and vital. I found it very useful. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Thank you for a fantastic trek. S.Nossiter NSW, Australia
Explore on foot the stunning Berchtesgaden National Park and Lake Königssee - a pristine fjord like lake. Located in a romantic, mysterious and unique region, the lake is surrounded by an imposing mountain landscape. Walking through mountain passes below high rocky summits, discover beautiful valleys, waterfalls, gorges and rivers. This is immersion with nature at its best. En route there will be opportunities to view the Eagles Nest, Adolf Hitler's famous headquarters; the historic Austrian village of Golling; Hohenwerfen Castle; and Mt Jenner Lookout with its sweeping views of more than 100 German and Austrian peaks. Evenings are spent in superb 3 star mountain hotels where you can enjoy hearty German cuisine and relax with a Bavarian beer or two.
