Spring Recces in the Austrian Alps
We have exciting news from our base in Ehrwald in the Tyrol. In contrast to the amazing winter conditions in Northern Italy and the Dolomites, Austria has had one of the sunniest, driest and warmest winters on record. Spring has arrived early in the high mountains in this beautiful part of Austria. It is official that on our first high level walk to Pitzenegg 2174m (see I&I laminates when in resort) that we have had sightings of the spring gentian, soldenella (see photos) and many more stunning Alpine Flowers.
We are delighted at this news as those who are booking for spring and early summer with us to the Zugspitz arena are promised a fabulous display of alpine and meadow flowers. We cannot wait!!
Collett’s Mountain Holidays will be launching walking holidays Austria at Ehrwald in the Zugspitze Arena in May 2014. We are also pleased to be offering the extensive local knowledge of Robert & Lesley Lockwood, formerly of Alpine Arena to help us establish ourselves in the Austrian Tyrol.
