Top 10 Most Popular

Majestic Alpine forests are the ultimate setting to practise the ancient skill of hunting with a bow and arrow. With target ranges in many Austrian resorts and experienced instructors to hand, refining your technique to rival that of Legolas should be a doddle!

Some resorts such as Saalbach and Filzmoos even have 3D archery ‘parcours’, where you can head out into the woods and take aim at life-sized animal replicas. We’re not sure about crocodiles in the Alps, but the course at St. Johann has one, as well as a great wolf, wild boar, a bear and various other prey…

Holidays in the ten best Austrian archery resorts

Tucked away in the foothills of the majestic ‘Bishop’s mitre’ mountain, Filzmoos really comes into its own in summer, with all sorts of festivals and celebrations (if you’ve ever wondered what a doughnut or dumpling festival would be like, you’ve come to the right place!). With graded paths for scenic strolls, themed walks and mountaineering as well as cycling, climbing, rafting and pony trekking on the ‘to do’ list, there’s plenty to fill your week in this traditional Austrian village.

If you’ve a head for heights, Obergurgl’s the highest parish village in Austria which means awesome scenery (including twenty 3000m peaks) and tonnes of high altitude activity. Hike to Ramolhaus at 3006m, crank up the speed as you bike down the Wurmkogel or do things at a slower pace on a hack with a Haflinger. The village itself is small and quiet, just what you need to relax on those long summer evenings.

Kaprun is classically Austrian with wooden chalets and an imposing castle and the surrounding pine forests and pastures are ideal for enjoying the open air. You’ll find a fantastic range of cycling routes from short, gentle jaunts to challenging mountain descents and hiking and walking trails will guide you past Salzberg’s iconic rugged mountains, reservoirs and the glittering Lake Zeller.

One of the top destinations for Alpine activities, Kitz it’s also a feast for the eyes, with a colourful medieval village, stunning lakes and bright, flowery meadows. There’s oodles to do, from hurtling down the Streif to wandering round the posh boutiques - on top of mile after mile of cycling and walking trails.

It’s little wonder that the scenic Glemm Valley surrounding Saalbach is known as the ‘Valley of the Games’. With 400km of hiking and biking trails, this is a massive playground of outdoor pursuits - the infamous Seven Summits have their home here and the Pinzgau Bike Circus and 280km Tauern network are sure to keep you amused on two wheels.

The market town of Sankt Johann in Tirol has charm in every nook and cranny, with coloured chalets, chic cafes and a twin-spired church between expanses of alpine pastures. Bordering the town are the Kitzbuhelerhorn and Wilder Kaiser mountain range – each with a fantastic set of trails and routes to discover on foot or by bike.

Being utterly surrounded by the Kitzbüheler Alps means Kirchberg has access to over a thousand miles of hiking, cycling and mountain biking trails. With only a ten minute drive to legendary Kitzbühel, you can try all the activities that a bigger, better-known town has to offer before retreating to this cosy Tyrolean village in the middle of the mountains.

A sunny little village, Pertisau sits on the shores of the incredible Achensee – the largest and deepest lake in the Austrian Tyrol. Bordered by mountains as well, this is a top spot for an active summer holiday. The village itself is lovely, too, and usually hosts live music events in the summer.

Mayrhofen is ‘traditional Austrian’ from head to toe and the town has a refreshing buzz to it all summer long. Cross alpine pastures, speed down the Penken and discover deep gorges and canyons before letting your hair down with a stein and some Austrian folk music – you’d struggle to find a ‘best for Alps activities’ list that this place doesn’t crop up on.

It’s easy to fall in love with Zell am See (there’s even a mountain called ‘Schmitten’...) and the surroundings will certainly take your breath away, but not just because they’re so beautiful – the area’s a super base for activities; climb, hike or bike the mountains, sail, paddle or swim the lake and do tonnes more in between.
