Bus Travel Description

Autumn is harvest time. If the weather has been favorable during the year and everything else has gone well, the farmers' work in the fields, meadows and mountain pastures bears fruit. After work, however, you should not only rest, but also celebrate, which is why the farmers' autumn in Salzburger Land is a very sociable time. Lived tradition, customs and traditional crafts mixed with culinary Pinzgau delicacies.

2nd-5th day At leisure in Unken
The following excursions are included in the tour price: 

Day trip Großglockner
This trip takes you to the highest mountain in Austria. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road has made it possible to experience the unique landscape of the Hohe Tauern National Park for more than half a century now. Nature shows its most beautiful side once again in the fall. The distant views on the mountains are crystal clear and the otherwise so striking peaks seem close enough to touch. Get up high, ride above the autumnal wafts of mist and enjoy the magnificent views! Watch the marmots slowly getting ready for hibernation or the ibex up close! 

Day trip around the Hochkönig with a visit to the Christlalm
Via the Salzach Valley to Maria Alm, the Dientener Sattel and Mühlbach. Around the Hochkönig with its mighty mountain slopes and beautiful views! The Alm can be reached via a beautiful, 9 km long panoramic road and is situated on the 1500 m high glacier plateau of the Trattberg. Fresh, clear alpine air, the panorama and the rustic alpine pasture - it's a great place to be! Cheerfulness reigns at the Christlalm, Sepp plays music and the hut fun is perfect! The return journey then takes us via Salzburg and Bad Reichenhall.

Visit to a Harvest Festival
Living tradition, customs and traditional crafts are important values that are cultivated and celebrated during the Salzburg Harvest Festival. From the much admired "Almabtrieb", when the festively decorated cattle return to the valley from their summer on the alpine pastures, to creative hay figures that mark the village entrances and cheerfully dancing Schuhplattler groups - the Harvest Festival offers all these old traditions a stage to cultivate folk culture! Culinary delights: many Pinzgau specialties are served by the farmers' wives at these festivals!

Day 6 Journey home 
Well rested and refreshed, we start our journey home after breakfast.
