Reviewed on 04 Aug 2018 by Anna NorrisOur favorite walking day was the foothills of Hochkonig. This is one of the most amazing hikes we have ever done. We loved our challenging final day to the peak of Mount Jenner. Read full review
Reviewed on 05 Aug 2017 by Maeve JenkinsonClimbing high up into the mountains and seeing stunning views all around was the most memorable. A fantastic new experience for me and my 15 year old son. We will definitely do it again. Read full review
Reviewed on 15 Jul 2017 by Dylia SassoThe scenery throughout the trip was wonderful and the most impressive was that everyday the trails were different from the others. Being a fairly small area it was not the same scenery everyday which is something we did not expect. Read full review
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe advise all of our clients to stay to the marked paths. This is to maintain the environment as they pass so that it remains pristine for walkers using the pathways in the future. We also advise that they take all of their rubbish with them until the end of the day and recycle or dispose of it as is appropriate.
As much as is possible on this trek we have tried to ensure that the walking is done from hotel to hotel each day, meaning that there is no need to be transported from or to a hotel each day and reduces the need for transportation journeys and their effect on the environment.
To get between the airport and the walking area we give information about the public transport route necessary to make the journey, booking tickets in advance where possible. This reduces the environmental impact compared to what would be a long transfer in a private car.
PeopleMost of the hotels which we use on this trek are small and family run. This enables the establishments to continue into the future so that more people are able to enjoy this section of the Danube in Austria. We also arrange for our clients to eat either at the hotels or at small local restaurants, again keeping the income in the small towns and villages where they stay overnight.
We partner with a local Austrian company in order to run this trek. We are therefore able to use their outstanding local knowledge to arrange excellent walks as well as the accommodation options along the route.
We provide all of our clients with a list of phrases in German which they can use on their vacation. This can not just help in situations where they meet non-English speakers but can be a pleasant way to break the ice when arriving at a hotel or restaurant.
