The Salzkammergut in the heart of Austria is one of the country’s most impressive holiday regions, swept with fragrant alpine forests, soaring Schafberg mountains, tumbling green hills and the tranquil stillness of no less than 76 beautiful glassy lakes, including the infamous Wolfgangsee, it is well deserving of the name ‘Lake District’. Scattered with numerous golden trails leading to alpine havens or lakeside lookout spots, each of the most beautiful moments along Austria's stunning Salzkammergut routes are endearingly known and highlighted as ‘points of happiness’. Offering a special adventure, breathe in the clear mountain air and the subtly perfumed scents of the forest as you remind yourself of just how great an Alpine holiday can be.
