A Stunning Week in Austria - Olympiaregion Seefeld in Tirol

13th September 2017
My main summer holiday this year was spent on a walking holiday in the beautiful Austrian mountains. We stayed in the mountain resort of Seefeld which is 30 minutes from Innsbruck airport making it an extremely accessible holiday base surrounded by stunning scenery. Seefeld is famous for hosting the nordic events of the winter Olympics twice and will also host the 2019 Nordic World Championships and is the perfect location thanks to the surrounding mountains and extensive network of cross country skiing trails.

We spent much of the week walking from our base at the Seespitz hotel which sits on the shores of Lake Wildsee. During the week explored much of the local area made use of the cable cars taking us to 2,000 metres for the mountain ridge trail walk up to Seefelder Spitze at 2,221m for amazing 360 degree views. Other highlights of the week included a rail trip over the border into Germany to visit the beautiful Bavarian town of Mittenwald and also the nearby Leutascher Geisterklamm Gorge.

In this blog I have included a selection of my favorite images of the trip taken on our many walks exploring the Olympiaregion at Seefeld in Tyrol.
