Experience the authentic Alps

Patrick Burtscher, Euro Alps tour host, is waiting to take you on a trip to, and around, his spectacular homeland in the western Alps of Austria – where culture and traditions are alive.

Come and be Patrick’s guest, to discover and experience the stunning beauty and rich traditions of the authentic Austrian Alps.

Over 10 days, he will be your host, driver and walking leader as you explore and get to know his homeland in the local Grosses Walsertal region. Not only will you take in its spectacular mountains, aquamarine rivers, flower-filled meadows and quaint alpine huts, but you will also meet the people who live there in sustainable balance and harmony with the surrounding nature (as recognised by UNESCO’s classification as a model Biosphere Reserve).

This area is off the normal tourist track and it is where he grew up, so you will get a truly intimate and genuine experience of the land, as well as connecting with the local Walser people.
 

Why not see for yourself just what the area has to offer?

  

Whilst most of your exploring will be in the Grosses Walsertal, you will also visit and walk on the famed Arlberg massif, as well as in the Principality of Liechtenstein. On your sightseeing day you have a break from the mountains to visit the charming island of Lindau in Germany (reached by ferry over Lake Constance). 

In between the guided walks, you can participate or indulge in other activities and pastimes, from working alpine dairies to the 400-year-old chalet, which now houses the local museum, and from a high-ropes adventure course to the mountain herbal tea project. And there’s also the opportunity to take a German language lesson over coffee and cake, or simply relax with a pampering massage. Should you wish, you can opt to kick back on the sun-drenched terrace of your four-star alpine hotel to take in the awe-inspiring panoramas and drift away to the sound of cow bells.

Rest assured, this trip will leave you feeling rejuvenated and on top of the world.

Patrick, along with his family (wife, son and mother), look forward to welcoming you to their alpine paradise in 2015.
