One of Austria’s finest mountain towns

Holidays in St. Anton are all about getting outdoors, no matter what time of year. Summertime calls for exploring, delving into watersports or getting to know local cultures – even eating al fresco is an activity of its own when you've got such a stylish set of gastropubs at your feet.

St. Anton is a little mountain town in the Tyrolean Alps, all the way over in the western tail of Austria. The town centre is a pedestrian zone, giving it a real local spirit you can't help but love. Its skyline is crisscrossed with cable car lines stretching up to the nearby peaks, while down on the ground a thin river winds along the town's border.

Everything about it is postcard-worthy, from the green mountain passes to the traditional village, all the way to the frothy pints of Austrian beer.

Hiking trails

St. Anton's hiking network is made up of an incredible 300 kilometres of hiking and walking trails. Once there, you'll come across rustic mountain huts and pockets of water, rolling green hills and snow-capped mountains close by.

What's more is, those all-handy ski lifts that run skiers up the mountains in the winter still run regularly in the summer for hikers. To make the most of your Austrian holiday adventure, there are hiking guides you can enlist the help of, but the routes are clearly marked so you shouldn't have trouble navigating your own way.

Getting active in St. Anton

Upon first glance, this charming Austrian village might not seem like a thrill seeker's paradise, but look a little further afield out to the mountains beyond and you'll soon realise you've stumbled upon one seriously adrenaline-raising playground. Mountain biking, archery, rock climbing, paragliding and a ropes course – all at your disposal.

The Rosanna River runs through St. Anton as well, which means watersports open up here in the summertime. Kayaking, canyoning and tubing are all up for grabs. And if you're holidaying with children, there are a few special kid-friendly activities like young climbers' programmes and playgrounds to get them appreciating their supremely green surroundings too.
