Austrian Tyrol - St Anton & Silvretta Pass - Wed 11th Sept 2019
- Duration: 8 Days
- Product code: P81XLU
St. Anton is the world famous skiing resort, located 1300
metres above sea level in the scenic Arlberg region of the Western Tyrol. The village is renowned for its hospitality
and Tyrolean traditions and it is ideally located to discover the amazing
scenery of the area.
Our regular holidays to the Sporthotel in the centre of town
have proved to be very popular over the years. In the summer months the skiers
are replaced by walkers, climbers and nature lovers who come to enjoy the pure
mountain air, lush pastures, wooded valleys and traditional alpine scenery. Our holiday includes some great excursions
seeing some fantastic scenery with a local guide - a visit to Innsbruck in the
very heart of The Alps plus a very memorable day through the Silvretta Pass.
This year our stay coincides with the Almabtrieb – The Alpine Cattle Drive and Country Festival in St
Anton. Fantastic spectacle as the animals are led down from the mountains,
through the town to the lower pastures with the locals in traditional costume,
bands playing and a celebration in the main square. Our excursion days may
alter when details are known.
