Overview

Calling all hiking enthusiasts, have we got a trip for you! A week of hiking in a fabulously scenic area of Austria with comfy accommodations and delicious food and at a cost below a comparable outing in the USA! A timeless classic in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps, the Olympiaregion Seefeld is a holiday paradise! Join us for a fantastic hiking extravaganza. We'll be able to savor a magical, wildflower covered landscape in the heart of the Alps with a huge spectrum of sports and outdoor activities options to choose from for your free time. The south-facing plateau at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level encompasses five villages - Seefeld, Leutasch, Mösern-Buchen, Reith and Scharnitz - all of which offer a huge variety of sports and recreational activities to ensure a truly memorable break amid a breathtaking mountain landscape. The vast, 650-kilometre-long network of maintained walking, hiking and climbing trails. We'll stay in Leutasch, a truly quaint Tyrolean village close to Seefeld and enjoy hiking from here to various quaint villages in the area by utilizing the efficient local bus system. In this way we can truly experience a range of scenery and trails while having comfortable accommodations to come "home" to for a refreshing shower, massage, pool swim and/or sauna, followed by a nourishing meal. Because Seefeld is so renowned for its summer and winter sports, it is easily accessible from both Munich and Innsbruck via good bus and train connections. The FLIXBUS Company (https://shop.flixbus.com/?_ga=2.212193300.1418555266.1519905615-1000382663.1519905615) provides a service directly from Munich airport to Seefeld four times a day at a very reasonable cost (about 20 euros one way). Our hotel in Leutasch will pick us up at the bus stop and take us directly to the hotel where we will be pampered during our stay. Breakfast and dinner will be eaten right at the hotel, and our lunches will be enjoined either on the trail or at lovely Tyrolean cafes/alms/huttes/restaurants along our hiking trails. A lovely teatime buffet (3-5 pm) will greet us on our return in the afternoons! We'll also have the opportunity to join various local activities such as night walks, astronomy talks, as well as learning about the local history and culture. This trip welcomes spouses, friends, and/or significant others who are not intermediate-advanced hikers. One could use the many easier walking routes or do one of several alternate activities. Although we will offer an activity each day, participants may opt to take a "day off" at any point and make their own plans.
