Discover rushing glacial streams, spectacular waterfalls and impressive gorges. Follow historic trade routes and spot ibex and marmots among the spectacular mountains, burbling springs and huge, ancient trees. Welcome to Austria’s High Tauern National Park: 1,153 square miles (1,856 km) of unspoiled landscapes, inhabited by 15,000 different animal species and unimaginable natural splendour.

The High Tauern National Park is one of the most magnificent high mountain regions on the planet. Comprising myriad habitats, from lush valleys to towering 10,000-foot (3,000 m) peaks, it is home to an extraordinary wealth of species. So varied are its landscapes and its conditions that plants and wild animals originating from regions as diverse as the Central Asian steppes, the Arctic or Southern Europe can all be found here.

With this Collection we would like to invite you on a voyage of discovery through the national park. Each of the 16 awe-inspiring Tours brings you closer to this natural paradise in all its glory. While some will take you to mighty peaks, others will lead you leisurely through valleys, forests or along exciting nature trails. There is something for every level, from family ambles up to real alpine adventures. See for yourself!
