Welcome to an Austrian adventure! We'll kick things off today with a complimentary transfer from Worgl Train Station - or you can simply meet us at base camp: our very own Haus Schöneck in Hopfgarten. Set within the vibrant hills and surrounded by amazing hiking trails, our gasthof is kitted out with a bar, BBQ area and even a dance floor. After checking in and enjoying some chill time, it's time to meet our local host and new friends. Prost! Once bonded, we'll enjoy some authentic Austrian food (pork knuckle, rosti, that sort of thing) We'll even get to give our compliments to the chef, who'll take us through the menu and explain all of those quintessential local flavours.


Hohe Salve

Get your boots on this morning: today's the day we conquer the peak of Hopfgarten, Hohe Salve in the Kitzbuhel Alps with a dizzying summit of 1828m. Setting off from home base, your guide will lead you up some of the most beautiful and scenic trails in the region with views across the Zillertal Alps. After a tough but rewarding morning, we'll take a breather over a picnic lunch at mid-station. From there, the choice is yours. Got energy to burn? You could continue on and conquer the summit. Or, if you're feeling more scenic vibes why not take the Gondola down the mountain to soak in the views?

White Water Rafting on the River Inn

After some time to chill and rest, we'll get the adventure vibes rolling again this afternoon with White Water Rafting on the River Inn. With imposing waves and impressive rapids set amongst incredible mountain panoramas, this unforgettable experience will get the blood pumping.


Tonight, we'll wind down another delicious included dinner. Schnapps, anyone?




Yesterday we conquered Hopfgarten on foot; today it's all about two wheels. That's right, we're kicking off our third day with a locally guided mountain biking tour. We'll make quick work of the trails up to our scenic lookout, where we'll be rewarded with epic vistas. Then, as we cruise down the mountain we can let the downhill slopes do all the work for us (we earned it). Our reward for working up a sweat is a delicious BBQ Lunch, cooked fresh for us. The afternoon is ours to tick off all the must sees in Hopfgarten, easily done with included bike hire. Feeling more chilled vibes? Kicking back at homebase is fine too. If you haven't had enough of the lush mountain views you can opt to see them from new heights as you paraglide across the valley. It's our final night, so let's make it one to remember. At our farewell dinner in the Haus Schöneck we'll reflect on the adventures we've had and swap stories over some local beer. We won't forget you in a hurry, Hopfgarten.




Group hugs and heartfelt goodbyes will mark the end of our trip after one last breakfast today. Wrap things up with a complimentary transfer to Worgl Train Station or you can choose to make your own arrangements. Whatever the case, you will leave with a new home away from home in Hopfgarten. See you for the ski season in winter?

About this trip

Strap on your hiking boots! This action-packed adventure takes you into the heart of the Austrian Tyrol, where you'll walk scenic trails, picnic by winding streams, raft down thundering rapids and take gondola rides up the alpine mountains. The accommodation isn't too bad, either: our exclusive Haus Schöneck - where you'll get to enjoy the wonders of Austrian cuisine (and schnapps, if the mood takes you).
