Graz, Austria Graz, Austria

Are you yearning for an escape into the beauty of nature? Great for museums & attractions, skiing, hiking, and family-friendly activities, Austria is a terrific destination. These curated hiking and trekking tours to Austria offer an immersive experience in some of the most awe-inspiring destinations in the region. Through meticulous analysis of various tours based on price, ratings, destinations, services, and activities, we've handpicked the best hiking tour options in Austria for adventure enthusiasts like you. We're confident that one of these amazing guided tours will be perfect for your next hiking trip, so let's get started.

Hiking trails in the Alps and Dolomites offer a variety of difficulties, but always stunning views. Some hiking trails can be quite easy and relaxed, and others offer serious climbs that take dedication and commitment. Either way, the combination of the beautiful natural landscapes, quaint mountain villages, and cultural history means that any hiking trip to the area will be terrific. The famous Salzburger Almenweg is a "hut-to-hut" hike which takes around a month to do the entire route. But it's possible to just do a small section of it just for a day or two if you don't have the time. The Wachau valley area of the Danube is another popular region for hiking, as it's not far from Vienna and provides easy to moderate hikes, many of which are through vineyards. If you're looking for something close to Salzburg, many trails can be found in the area, especially around Mondsee or over the German border around Konigsee. If you're in Innsbruck, it's easy to hike from the city up the trails to the north towards Nordkette Klettersteig. No matter where you visit, hiking opportunities are everywhere.
