Austrian Lake District, Salzburg, Austria

Affectionately known as the Austrian Lake District, Salzkammergut is one of Austria's premiere holiday destinations, featuring crystal clear lakes, picturesque hillsides, and quaint yet fantastic villages.


Those travelers with a penchant for athleticism best utilize these majestic grounds—with seemingly endless opportunities at every turn—including mountain biking or hiking on one of many trails (for all levels of endurance), swimming, skiing, the list doesn't end. There is even an opportunity for the adventurous traveler to soar 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) over the valley with an available paragliding site, the Krippenstein.
