44 regions and one idea: to make the "magic of walking" reality with elemental nature experiences.

The members of Austria's Hiking Villages all went in search of their own "elemental natural experience" that would offer unforgettable moments in harmony with nature. Take, for example, the hike that leads towards tucking into your breakfast on the mountain, surrounded by wild alpine streams, romantic huts and delicious local delicacies. Freshly baked wood oven bread, creamy cheese and fruity jam are the perfect reward for your morning rambles and have never tasted better than against such an enchanting backdrop.

And it's not just in summer that walking can casts its spell on you. Why not try snow shoe hiking in the winter months, when the peaceful surroundings are only interrupted by the delicious crunch of your steps in the snow.
