Alpine perfection, home of 'The Sound of Music'
Experience the essence of the Alps with this colorful trip through Austria, exploring some of Europe's most panoramic landscapes.
Starting with the famous sporting sights of Innsbruck, we journey through alpine forests and traditional villages, across flower-strewn meadows with views of snowy mountain peaks. We travel in cable cars and on mountain railways; we hear Tyrolean music and sample the hearty local cooking, explore magnificent palaces and walk the shores of the dramatic Schwarzsee, or Black Lake.
A popular highlight is our two-night stay in the former summer lodge of the Von Trapp family (of "The Sound of Music" fame) in Thumersbach bei Zell am See.
