Summer, sunshine and lots of fresh, mountain air. The countdown to the summer season in the mountains has begun and you can hardly wait! But have you started thinking about what you need to pack? Or does the thought of it make your head start to spin? Don’t worry. We are here to help: read on to find out the “8 most important MUST HAVES” that you need to remember.
MUST HAVE 1
Personal documentation - for check-in and in case anyone asks and an honest face isn’t enough!
valid photo ID or passport
driving license and car documentation if you are travelling by car
MUST HAVE 2
Money – for those little (or large) purchases. Treat yourself – you’re on holiday!
cash (e.g. for refreshments in mountain huts)
MUST HAVE 3
Tickets – without these you might have a long way to walk!
flight or train ticket
vignette for the Austrian motorways
TOP TIP: Have you already arranged a taxi transfer from the airport or the train station to your accommodation? Book your shuttle service quickly and easily by clicking on transfer.
MUST HAVE 4
Your favourite mountain gear – only the best equipment will help you reach the summit.
hiking boots and poles
hiking t-shirts and trousers
fleece jumper, socks and waterproof jacket
warm headband, hat and gloves (it can get chilly on the mountain)
sunglasses, sun cream and cap
TOP TIP: If you’ve got new hiking boots, make sure you break them in before your holiday so that you don’t get any blisters. Would you like to discover secret locations, get closer to nature or just make sure that you get safely up the mountain and back down again? Then choose from a wide range of guided hikes in the nature park.
MUST HAVE 5
Everything for some action and adventure
hiking shoes or good trainers
lots of energy and enthusiasm!
TOP TIP: The mountains don’t just offer amazing hiking opportunities. Book rafting, paragliding, biking and many more adrenaline-fuelled adventures here.
