This is the Austria travellers dream about. Dramatic alpine peaks, secluded valleys, tiny mountain villages, authentic and hearty cuisine, and plenty of opportunities to meet the local people. But this Austria is not to be found on the highways or in the cities; this Austria is found on foot, travelling the vast network of accessible trails and exploring the riches of this country's excellent hut system. "Walking Austria's Alps" offers eleven treks, ranging from four to eleven days in length, which include nightly stops at a mountain hut where walkers can eat well and sleep in comfort. No technical climbing skills or equipment are necessary, just strong legs and sturdy shoes. The daily itineraries allow plenty of time for interesting detours, climbs on nearby peaks, or simply sitting to admire the scenery.
