Welcome to Hopfgarten! We'll meet and greet at our very own Austrian Gasthof today, as we begin our awe-inspiring journey through the most breathtaking scenery in Europe. We'll kick things off the right way today, bonding over a homecooked dinner whipped up by our live in chefs. Anyone for pork knuckle and rosti? After dinner, it's time for a bit of stargazing, taking advantage of the lack of light pollution in these parts. Dreamy or what? And we're just getting warmed up...

This morning, we'll enjoy a walk around Hintersteiner See, a natural lake fed by underground springs. Feeling hot after the hike?

This afternoon we're headed into the melodic city of Salzburg, home to Mozart & The Sound of Music. We'll enjoy a guided walking tour with a local guide before getting some free time to explore.

We'll enjoy the views along with a well-earned lunch, before a decidedly more chilled out afternoon back at the Gasthof, with some free time to explore the village or go for a bike ride.
