Date: Sat, Aug. 18, 2018
Time: 05:15
Location:  Dachstein-Krippenstein-Seilbahn, Winkl 34, 4831 Obertraun
Info: High alpine day hike in the colourful dress of the mountain world. An unforgettable autumn day in the World Heritage. A piece of Canada in Austria!

A blessing for the sore eyes

The autumn is well known to be the most beautiful hiking time. Not so hot, clear blue skies and fantastic clear views. Connoisseurs also call this time “Indian Summer”. This term has its origin in Canada from native American Indians. And it is exactly then, during this colourful time that we would like to invite you to a gorgeous, high alpine mountain hike.

Hiking with the colour palette of nature

With the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car, we will rise effortlessly and easily over red and orange impregnated mountain forests up to 2000 metres. Once on top, we will walk along ancient paths of hunters and shepherds and visit almost forgotten areas of the pastures. Accompanied by exciting stories from the times "when there were no cable cars" and the question: How did the inhabitants of the Salzkammergut live here almost 7000 years ago? Where did they come from and where were they going? A piece of history amidst wild nature! Unadulterated. Down to Earth. Real.

Free as the wind

An enjoyable hike for all your senses – every step of the way. Simply take off the hiking shoes and feel the pasture beneath your feet. A rest for stressed ears and eyes. Unlimited space and uninterrupted silence. At the same time, we enjoy the unique autumn colours of the high alpine flora in the already low, but still pleasantly warm sun. Just be free and feel the wind in the hair.

Register now and strap on your rucksack for a breathtaking Indian Summer adventure tour as part of the “Obertrauner Wanderherbst” and enjoy nature’s incomparable play of colours on the Dachstein plateau.
