Hiking Holidays in Austria
Hiking Trails Starting at the Doorstep
What plays the biggest role for your well-being, apart from a healthy diet? Physical activity! If you set out on foot, there’s a lot to see, hear, smell and to marvel at. Whether it’s an arduous ascent or a leisurely ramble through the countryside: it’s great to feel your own body. After a hike, the hearty and well-deserved snack tastes so much better.
Hiking in an Incredible Landscape of Colour
Farmholidays in Austria in Autumn
Mother nature is certainly the best painter of all. In autumn, you can witness nature’s colour palette in its full glory. The landscape is speckled with golden larches, alpine pastures and beech trees turning from green to orange to pure gold. From beautiful browns and blazing reds, to vibrant oranges and golden yellows, the dazzling displays of autumn colour are abundant throughout Austria. But wait too long and all these bursts of colour will be covered by a white blanket in winter - which also looks very pretty, by the way. Austrian stone pine, fir and pine trees are the only green spots to remain in the forests.
Sit down on the bench next to the farmhouse and take in the vibrancy of the colours against the backdrop of a stunning mountain scenery. Fancy a country walk? The mountain peaks up there look so tempting... Afterwards, there’s nothing better than warming up in the sauna or next to the tiled stove. Indulge in a massage with fragrant oils and sip a cup of herbal tea. Warming treats for body and soul!

Hiking in Austria - Discover the Variety
Austria’s vast network of hiking trails offers routes for every level. Climb the summits or take a stroll around one of the lakes. Walk over plenty of Alpine pastures or wander in the forests. Nature is waiting to be discovered!
Each of Austria’s eight federal provinces has walking and hiking routes for very different levels. Apart from high mountains, Tyrol also offers easy strolls (e.g. in the Inntal valley). Burgenland, Austria’s flattest province located in the very east, is more than the wide plains and vineyards surrounding Lake Neusiedl. Indeed, you can also find a few demanding routes here. By the way, you can even take an easy stroll being high up in the mountains.
Keen hikers from all over the world appreciate the great number of national parks and biosphere reserves in Austria. These large conservation areas are strictly protected and recognised on a global scale. This way, the areas remain in their natural condition to a large extent. Here, native plants find a natural habitat. You can even spot wildlife!
At the Summit
Farm Holidays in Austria: Let’s Hit the Countryside!
The farms and mountain cabins in the regions close to Austria’s national parks are the best starting points for all kinds of day trips. The best thing about your holiday here: on the farm, feeling connected to nature doesn’t end at the doorstep when taking off the hiking boots. Bonding with nature, from dawn till dusk. It starts with a healthy breakfast and ends in the evening, when you sit on the bench next to the farmhouse reflecting on your experiences. Some fresh lemonade that the farmer has made of fresh herbs and a purring kitten on your lap ... What more could you ask for?

High, Higher, Top!
More than clambering on the rocks: You can go climbing or bouldering. It’s up to you! There are many via ferratas for different levels and outdoor climbing centres for the whole family. You can go ice climbing or conquer multi-pitch routes. You can find happiness in a climbing park, on a treetop trail or in an indoor climbing centre. Are you new to climbing? Would you like to have a try and take a class? No problem! On your farm holiday in Austria, the next climbing facility is always close-by. Austria has got plenty!
Go for a scavenger hunt through the forest. Who can spot the most yellow butterflies? Who finds the most bizarre tree root? Who dares taking off the shoes and dipping the toes into the icy waters of the stream? Not only the farm itself but also the surroundings are nature at its best. Explore alpine pastures, mountains, rocks, forests, meadows, fields, wetlands and moorlands. Walk around the entire lake before jumping into the water. Enjoy the shopping facilities or the cultural amenities in the nearby city for a change.
Are you dreaming of conquering a really high mountain? Would you like to learn what’s going on in a forest? Ask your hosts on the farm. Many of them are certified hiking guides, forest school practitioners or forest therapy guides. They will be more than happy to help you make your dreams come true!
Take a Leisurely Stroll
Would you like to take it easy while you’re on holiday? Do you fancy a tasty breakfast with farm products before you’re slowly putting out your feelers towards nature? Sure! You can set out on a country walk right from the farmhouse.
Walk down to the stream, the river or the nearby pond in the forest. The birds are chirping, the insects are humming. The sounds of nature are keeping you company on your country ramble. You can feel how every step takes you closer to pure relaxation. And then, as you’re lying down on the mossy pillow on the banks of the stream, as you’re watching the movement of lights and shadows in the treetops, you know that you’ve arrived. On the farm. On holiday. In life.
