Tyrolean Splendor 2021- Gold!
8 Days All Inclusive by Coach
Highlights: • Kitzbuhel • Gerlos Pass • Rattenberg • Mayrhofen • Zell-am-See • Wildkogel Card • Ziller Valley • Grossglockner Glacier
The picture-book villages of the Austrian Tyrol transform during the summer months into tranquil havens offering crisp mountain air, flower-filled rolling meadows and soaring mountain ranges. Our ‘all-inclusive’ holiday combines great local hospitality amid spectacular scenery, together with a sightseeing programme taking in the very best of the surrounding countryside - from towering heights to shimmering lakes and a visit to the longest glacier in Europe too! Our base is the village of Neukirchen in the Salzburgerland region, surrounded by the beautiful Hohe Tauern National Park and close to the spectacular Krimml Falls.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
SATURDAY: We head for the Channel crossing to Calais and on to our overnight stop in Germany in time for a late dinner.
SUNDAY: Today we cross the border into Austria to reach our hotel for the next five nights in the resort of Neukirchen.
MONDAY: An extended half day as we head to Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner. We ascend along the spectacular Grossglockner High Road with its 36 turns to reach the viewing platform at 2,500 metres above sea level to view the famous Grossglockner Glacier, the longest in Europe.
TUESDAY: A full day circular scenic tour to enjoy the wonderful Tyrolean scenery. Touring through the Hohe Tauern National Park we pass the cascading waters of the Krimml Falls and through the Gerlos Pass to reach the gentle Ziller Valley with its lush meadows. We make a stop at Rattenberg, founded 700 years ago and famous for its glass blowing, before returning via the popular winter resort of Mayrhofen, where you can perhaps take a ride on the Ahornbahn cable car - with each car holding 160 people!
WEDNESDAY: A day to enjoy your Alpine surroundings. We include a Wildkogel card that includes free use of public transport and cable cars to get the most out of your day at leisure.
THURSDAY: Today we make our way through the Kitzbuheler Alps to Kitzbuhel in the shadow of the famous Hahnenkamm. Formerly a copper mining village it is now one of Austria’s premier resorts. This afternoon we continue to the attractive town of Zell-am-See, situated beside the mirror-like waters of Zeller See.
FRIDAY: This morning we leave this Alpine heaven and head towards Germany and to our overnight stop.
SATURDAY: To Calais for the return Channel crossing and home.
