Summer Spa Holiday Tyrol: Health and Fitness in the Mountains
Austria is renowned in the English-speaking world for its stunning mountain passes and glistening lakes. Visit the Austrian Tyrol at any time of the year, and you'll find that this stereotype certainly hits the nail on the head. In Tyrol's High Tauern National Park, home to Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner, towering snow-decked peaks provide the backdrop to the region's many luxurious spa hotels. With countless activities on offer on-location and off, from mountain biking, hiking, swimming, and golf to name but few, these hotels are well worth the visit.
Summer Spa Holidays in Tyrol - Spa Hotels
Nestled in the foothills of the High Tauern, Hotel & Resort Defereggental is 4-star hotel offering many spa facilities, treatments, and even hotel-owned Porsche convertibles to take for a spin through the mountains. Those wishing to stay on-location can pamper themselves with massage, countless beauty treatments, a swim in the hotel's pool, or recline in its sauna. For more energetic activities, try a workout in the hotel's gym. Those more adventurously inclined can spend the day in the untamed Alpine wilderness, wildwater rafting on the river Isel, trying their hand at archery, or spending the day on the hotel's own 27-hole golf course, a scenic 40-minute drive away.
To get out, try a day trip to the historic city of Lienz. With its cobbled centre, medieval castle, and stunning mountain backdrop glancing through narrow streets, there is much to see and do in this quaint ex-market town. Whether you visit its museums, historical sites, or simply soak in the Italian-influenced ambience in its many restaurants and cafes, Lienz will give you that necessary dose of culture before heading back to relax at the hotel. Whether on-location or off, a summer spa holiday in Tyrol offers a myriad of opportunities for the active holidaymaker and the homebody alike.
