Our 2020 season review

Healthy and active through the past hiking year

Together we look back on an active travel season that presented us with a special challenge. We want to be completely honest, some days this challenge demanded a lot from us. Nevertheless, we are grateful that our guests have trusted our type of travel and have enjoyed a valuable hiking holiday in nature. Our guests experienced the incomparable magic of walking this year, especially when taking a holiday at home in Germany and Austria. A staycation could be experienced away from the crowds and individually in our own hiking rhythm. Our home is so beautiful, and we appreciated the positive effect of nature on our body and soul, what could be discovered in a special way this year.

Despite the changes, it is clear our active tours are the starting point for the beginning of countless experiences, fabulous moments of joy and unforgettable memories. A successful hiking holiday along the natural gems of the homeland can work wonders. Healthy exercise not only soothes the body and soul, but also, during an individual break in nature, you can calm your mind, switch off and leave room for new inspiration, which has become all the more important during this time.

Six of our hiking tours at home were particularly popular in 2020 – we are now proud to present them to you. And with a lot of anticipation for the new active year and a lot of desire for an eventful break, we are already looking forward to organising your hiking holidays 2021!

Our tip: Enjoy the alpine pastures in the midst of a picture-postcard idyll - taste the homemade alpine cheese and other homemade products on one of the traditional alpine huts, always accompanied by wonderful panoramas and distant views.

Ten Lakes Trekking Tour

One of our TOP Eurohike hiking holidays in the Austrian Salzkammergut, which our guests particularly appreciated this year, was the Ten Lakes Trekking Tour, 10 days. Here one highlight follows the last and as soon as you have passed one dreamy lake, you reach another piece of paradise, all amidst the wonderful natural landscape of Austria.

Our tip: Austria is a real treasure trove for foodies. Whether a delicious smoked fish from the Schlossfischerei on the Fuschlsee, the traditional Zaunerstollen in the Zauner confectionery in Bad Ischl or a typical alpine snack on one of the alpine huts along the way – time for moments of enjoyment should be factored into this hiking tour!
