An 8 day extravaganza, Austria High Alps Explorer & The truly memorable Almatrieb Festival.

 

Nestled in the heart of the Alps, Austria’s Tyrol region is steeped in tradition. Here there are high peaks, lush valley’s, pine clad hills, rushing rivers and sparkling lakes.  The famous resort of St Anton is found in the western Tyrol, close to the Arlberg Pass and a short drive from northern Italy, Switzerland and the fantastic attractions of southern Bavaria.  It offers a pretty, pedestrianised village centre with a host of excellent bars, cafés and restaurants as well as a location which affords wonderful excursion possibilities. 

Whilst in St Anton we will sample a traditional Alpine Almabtrieb Festival, when the cows descend in procession to their summer pastures and locals and visitors meet to celebrate the end of summer.

 

A real spectacle of Austrian festivity and hospitality.
