12 Day Select Holiday

The focal point of our autumn adventure will be our day at the Almabtrieb in Brixen im Thale – a traditional farm animal festival with tinkling bells and yodelling herdsmen marking the start of autumn when farmers bring their cows, sheep, goats and horses down from summer pastures before the weather turns cold. This homecoming is celebrated with a colourful parade of decorated animals alongside a festival featuring marquees with live bands, food and drinks. Other gems on this fun tour include a day in historic Innsbruck. This city in the Alps boasts striking views of the jagged peaks of the Nordkette mountain range along with alpine nature and a picturesque Old Town featuring gothic architecture. We also enjoy a guided tour of Salzburg, an Austrian metropolis on the border with Germany and split by the Salzach River. It’s narrow lanes and broad squares are World Heritage Sites. Look forward to a scenic sail across sparkling Lake Achensee in the heart of the mountains.
