We’re just back from another incredible trip in the Austrian Tirol with Topflight. We’re already counting down the days until 24 August 2019, when we get to go again. We’ve spent the week with a group of our amazing readers in the idyllic little town of Ehrwald in Tirol exploring the stunning Alpine mountains that surround it. We hiked, we swam, we ate, we drank and it was pure perfection. Below is just a snapshot of some of our days living it up in the Austrian great outdoors on this year’s Outsider hiking trip.

A particular highlight of the trip is the tough but stunning trek to Lake Seebensee. Make sure to hop in to pass the turquoise lake, the Drachensee for a cold plunge to soothe your achy muscles.

A snapshot from stage 16 of the Eagle Walk, the 413km long-distance mountaineering trail, which runs the length of the region. The route makes for some pristine hiking through meadows and forests.
