Surrounded by a diverse and beautiful chain of mountain peaks, ridges and remote side valleys, the scope of walks from the Alpbach Valley is almost limitless. There are walks to the upper reaches of the valley and breathtaking hikes to its higher peaks such as the craggy Gratlspitze, the dome-like Schatzberg and views of the dominating pyramidal Grosser Galtenberg which beckons from the first days of your holiday. In addition, you will be able to explore the heights of the nearby Rofan plateau and Karwendel Mountains, separated by the Achensee, one of the largest and arguably most beautiful bathing lakes in Tirol.
Both local and hired transport together with cable cars and chairlifts, which operate from mid-June, are used to further increase the scope and diversity of the walks. With this Ramblers Worldwide Holidays package you are based in the village of Alpbach, near the upper end of the valley, which has a very distinctive character of its own. Local laws ensure that all new buildings are built in the traditional style, so timber houses decked with spectacular window boxes and carved balconies are in abundance. The villagers organise regular festivals and colorful processions throughout the summer. This fantastic package departs on the following dates:
