The Salzburg Lakes A 7 night independent or guided walking holiday around Austria’s Lake District. We have graded this walking tour as level 1.
The region around Salzburg, with its many lakes and mountain scenery, was made famous by the film ‘Sound of Music’. This region known as the Salzkammergut is considered one of the most beautiful treasures on earth. The uniqueness of this area has been recognised by UNESCO which has declared the region around Hallstatt as a nature and world heritage site. We will show you some of the beauties on this hiking tour that can be reached only on foot.
At Hooked on Walking Holidays, we are the European specialist for walking holidays. We have a strong emphasis on self-guided walking tours but we still have a number of group and guided tours available with something to suit everyone. We believe we offer the widest range of tours for all abilities in the market place, flat tours for beginners to high alpine tours for the more advanced adventurer. Hooked on Walking Holidays is owned by Jon and Sue Hook and our office is based in Edinburgh.
We always seek out the most pleasant hotels, guesthouses, inns and other accommodation in each town along our routes, to ensure a comfortable and very friendly stop over for you. Our approach is to find hotels with a family run atmosphere, which is relaxed and pleasant and where possible typical of the local architecture and culture. By carefully selecting our accommodation, we offer our walking guests a very special local cultural experience. When providing half board (breakfast and dinner) we locate hotels that have that extra special local cuisine.
Our Information page advises you how to book and answers many of those frequently asked questions but if you cannot find answers to your questions then please feel free to e-mail or call us on the number on this page. Over the years, we have received many testimonials from many happy guests.
As members of the UK Incoming (British incoming tour operators association), we have exceeded very tough quality guidelines for our business. UK Incoming requires strict business practices when providing holidays. We have been members of this professional organisation for several years.
