Nature & Adventure

Austria's natural world is breathtaking in its beauty and scale. The landscape comprises hundreds of mountain and glaciers, soaring above flowering meadows, crystal lakes of drinking water quality and charming villages. It's one of Europe's most wooded countries with flourishing flora and fauna, from its alpine roses to its small bear population.

Here, holidaymakers find hiking and biking trails for every mood, high ropes and via ferrata climbs, adventure parks and water-based activities, in addition to Austria's unsurpassable winter sports scene. Choose between a family-friendly themed hike and an intense mountain bike workshop one day, glacier skiing and stand-up paddle boarding the next. When it comes to adventure travel, Austria's got it all.
