Active summer vacation

Come do...

Resting on a lush green alpine pasture: The Dachstein-Salzkammergut-region can offer unrivalled views: rugged mountain tops, clear mountain lakes, glaciers, green alpine pastures combined with numerous walks and trips. Whereas during the hot summer somewhere else the wild waters become feeble brooks, in Hallstatt, Gosau, Bad Goisern and Obertraun you can ride the wild waves on a kayak, a rafting boat till late autumn or other active sports.
