Take the plunge! On these tours water is a constant companion!

Cooling off for industrious hiking feet

Oh, a summer like this can truly be marvellous! Not a single cloud to be seen in the stunning blue sky. The sun shines with all its might and everyone’s mood is getting better and better. Especially in summer, mother nature presents its abundance in all its glory and ecstasizes with crystal clear lakes, lush pastures and blooming fields. In the mountains you enjoy abnormally awesome visibility, the rugged rock massif blends with mountain pine forests and rock scree. And on the mountain tops here and there the white splendor of snow is still present with a twinkle. As fabulous as a warm summer’s day can be, the more perspiration a hiking tour can cause. Hence industrious hiking feet are really happy about a route leading past lakes, streams and rivers. We have compiled hiking tours along swimming hotspots and mountain lakes. That way you have the option on hot days to just plunge into the cool water!

Ten Lakes in Ten Days

The frontrunner, when it is all about spots to cool off along a hiking route, is definitely the Trekking Route in the Salzkammergut. In ten days you walk past ten lakes and one is more tempting than the next. The challenging hiking route leads from Fuschl am See through the entire lake scenery in the picturesque Salzkammergut region. The steeper the route the more you welcome the cool waters. So, remember to pack your swimming trunks and bikini in your rucksack and off you go for a dip! Please read the detailed tour description of the trekking route now!
