The Self-Guided Austrian Lakes Walk - Premium tour starts in Bad Ischl and ends in Mondsee. The Self-Guided Austrian Lakes Walk - Premium is a Point-to-point tour that takes 9 days taking you from Bad Ischl to Mondsee and other destinations in Europe.

The Austrian Lakes area offers a glorious mix of spectacular views, forest trails, picture-perfect villages and swimming opportunities galore! The walks are relaxed, following mainly well-marked routes, with stunning lake views every day. Every stop brings new discoveries such as St Wolfgang's antique cog railway, the summit of Schafberg and Mozart's museum in St. Gilgen.

Arrive at your 4-star hotel in Bad Ischl and relax before dinner in the wellness centre.

Premium Hotel
Today take a bus to the spectacular alpine village of Hallstatt, a UNESCO world heritage site and the oldest village in Austria. Take the panoramic funicular railway up the mountain and visit the historical salt mine. Use the ferry to cross the lake and follow a beautiful walk to Bad Goisern before returning to Bad Ischl by train. Optional walk: 3hr, distance 11km/7mi.

Premium Hotel
There is plenty to do today - explore pretty Bad Ischl itself, with its riverside location. Stroll along the esplanade and have coffee and cake in the world famous Zauner cafe, take in some of the imperial history (visit the Emperor's Villa and gardens), relax in the Eurothermen Resort Thermal Baths or simply pamper yourself in the hotel's spa. A trip to the nearby Dachstein Ice caves and spectacular 5 Finger Lookout is also an option.

There are fabulous 360° views of Traun and Hallstatt lakes, backed by the impressive Hollengebirge and Dachstein peaks. From here, your route takes you down the forested Katrin Pass. Tiny violet gentian flowers perfume your route as you pass Nussen Lake, a great picnic spot. Continue along the valley following the River Traun until you reach Strobl. Here you'll stay at the elegant 4-star Hotel Bergrose. Walking time 4hr, distance 17km/11mi or 6hr 19km/16mi.
