1. Private Tour of Hallstatt from Salzburg
This is a great excursion for anyone who loves incredible scenery and history. After meeting your guide in your hotel (or any other location in the city) escape Salzburg for a private excursion to Hallstatt. Journey along the emerald-green Fuschlsee to the first stop at Castle Fuschl. Travel on to St. Gilgen and take a stunning photo of the beautiful scenery from a great view point. Leaving St. Gilgen and driving along the Wolfgangsee our trip will bring you to Bad Ischl, famous for its spa and the Emperor’s summer palace. Driving through Bad Goisern you will reach one of the highlights of our tour, Hallstatt: the pearl of the Lake District. In Hallstatt you can choose between taking the panorama funicular railway up the mountain and experience the magnificent World Heritage view 360 meters above town, on the Hallstatt sky walk and continuing on to the oldest salt mine in the world. Alternatively you can visit the 5 Fingers viewing platform – this is probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps and reaches out like a hand over the 400m drop. But it is not just the viewing platform it is also the route there that offers plenty of special features. After your adventure in the mountains or the salt mine you will have enough time to discover all the hidden gems as well as the must-sees of Hallstatt, as well as to have lunch in one of the beautiful lake side restaurants (at own expense). On your way home from Hallstatt, the Gosausee with its backdrop of the glistening Dachstein glacier awaits for a short stop. Then, journey on along the Dachstein mountain range through the ski resort of Russbach to Golling and finally your guide will drop you off at your hotel or any other destination in the city of Salzburg.
