Bredeson Outdoor Adventures, an outfitter providing four season trips in Europe and New England, is announcing a magnificent July 15 -22 guided hiking vacation in two of the most spectacular and beautiful areas in the European Alps: Austria’s Tyrol and Bavaria. These beautiful areas are combined on this trip, offering adventures that range from the high mountain peaks and traditional huts of the Austrian Tyrol to the fairy tale castles and forested mountains of southwestern Germany’s Bavaria.

In Austria guests will stay in an elegant 4-star hotel in the beautiful Tyrolean village of Neustift, reached only by a narrow road that travels between high mountain peaks. The hotel has extensive spa facilities, the use of which is included in the price. This guided vacation takes hikers through lush meadows filled with wildflowers and to high mountain huts above tree-line, where they’ll feast on hearty lunches of traditional Austrian fare while viewing stunning glacial panoramas.

Trip participants will then journey over the Austrian border into the mountains of Bavaria, to hike and visit several castles and lodges built by the enigmatic Bavarian Monarch Ludwig II. The base here will be a charming hotel near the historic town of Fuessen in “the King’s Corner’ of Bavaria with a view two of Ludwig’s castles: one in which he grew up, and the famous Neuschwanstein, which he spent his lifetime building. Participants will hike to Ludwig’s private hunting lodge and visit Linderhof, Ludwig’s most beautiful castle. Returning to the lovely city of Innsbruck, they’ll explore the medieval heart of this city that is perched in a bowl and is surrounded by the Alps.

This trip also lends itself to a self-guided extension in Innsbruck and to the beautiful Berchtesgaden, Koenigsee, and Salzburg area.
The land cost for this 10 day trip is $2700 per person double occoupancy. Full details are posted on the Bredeson Outdoor Adventures web site at http://www.bredeson.com/outdoor_adventures/hikes/hiking_austria.html.
