Schöner Familienurlaub
Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Tour mit Kindern. Dank des abwechslungsreichen Programmes, wurde unseren Kindern nie langweilig und sie hatten richtig viel Spaß. Sie konnten auch alle Wanderungen gut meistern. Auch mein Mann und ich waren sehr begeistert von den gut beschilderten Wanderwegen, der schönen Landschaft und den Hotels. Alles in Allem ein sehr gelungener, aktiver aber auch entspannter Familienurlaub.

Eine Genußwanderung
Es war eine tolle Wanderung, teils anstrengend teils leicht. Die Wanderstrecken waren alle sehr gut beschrieben und ausgeschildert. Unser Highlight war die Wanderung zur Rotwand. Auch hat das Wetter mitgespielt da es nicht zu warm war. Alles in allem können wir Eurohike weiterempfehlen, es hat alles geklappt. Von Anfang bis zum Ende war alles super organisiert. Wir werden mit Sicherheit nochmal eine Wandertour buchen.

abwechslungsreiche Tour
Wir hatten auch Glück mit dem WEtter, aber es war eine sehr schöne abwechslungsreiche Tour. Für müde Kinderfüße gibt es auch immer Möglichkeiten abzukürzen oder ggf auch eine Wanderauszeit zu nehmen. Gibt ja auch so viel zu entdecken.

Ein sehr schöner und abwechslungsreicher Urlaub
Tolle Landschaften, abwechslungsreiches Programm (neben dem Wandern): viele Bademöglichkeiten (in Seen, Therme, Freibad), Bootsfahrten, Seilbahnfahrten, Fahrt mit der Sommerrodelbahn. Da kam keine Langeweile auf!
