Discover lush Alpine meadows, fairy-tale forests and invigorating waters in a cultural landscape of outstanding authenticity.
This tour follows the first stages of the S-Trail from Lake Traunsee to Lake Attersee and leads into the magnificent “Höllengebirge” mountain range. With overnight stay at two mountain lodges!
