Tour Itinerary

 

Every year in the Tyrol, some 180,000 cows, horses, sheep and goats spend their summer in the mountains, grazing on Alpine pastures new. In September the cows return home, an occasion that is celebrated by decorating the cows with flowers, garlands and bells for their safe return home for the winter months. With a party atmosphere, there is music and dancing in the villages for this momentous occasion, and we will join the celebrations on this tour! This year we have included a Wildschönau Summer card for everyone which enables us to travel on 3 cable cars, visit a silver mine and a farming museum. We are also including a guided tour of Innsbruck.
