traveller reviews

  • An energetic way to explore the Austrian lake district via cycle and hiking, enjoying tasty refreshments along the route, with magnificent views and amazing history, towns and people. P & L. Adkins. Springwood, QLD. Australia
  • We had an absolutely fabulous trip. Well organised , bikes in excellent condition. Scenery was outstanding with lots alternative options for people. Although a few of the guesthouses were fine overall the trip was great. We found the Halsett Hotel way refreshing being a non smoking hotel. Thanks! K Kane Collingwood, VIC
From the enchanting alpine lakes of the Salzkammergut, along quiet cycle paths and mountain trails, this multi-activity adventure delves into the stunning landscapes to ensure a full appreciation of the Austrian Lakes district. Cycle through pastures and alongside magnificent mountain ringed lakes to the World Heritage town of Hallstatt, the town of Mondsee and the old Kaiser town of Bad Ischl. Explore old castles and ancient salt mines, hike forest trails to view striking glaciers and soak up the warm hospitality of carefully handpicked mountain hotels and guesthouses.
