Hiking holidays for single travellers in the Lake Fuschl Region 

Your hiking and wellness hotel near Salzburg

Can we let you into our secret?  Ebners Waldhof in the Salzkammergut Lake District is the perfect hiking hotel for all those who love spending time in the great outdoors. 

For singles and those travelling alone hiking is the ideal pastime. It's inevitable that you'll meet like-minded people on your hikes. Which means, you can enjoy your hiking holiday in solitude if that's what you're want or make new friends as you explore the amazing Salzkammergut countryside.  

So lace up your walking boots, grab your rucksack and head off to the peaks, lakes and mountain meadows. Taking a new path both literally and metaphorically will do you good. 

Whether you are alone or in company, a hiking holiday at Ebner's Waldhof will lift your spirits, tone your muscles and open up new perspectives.

Familie Ebner and fitness coach Conny know the walking trails of the Salzkammergut Lake District like the back of their hands. Each week during the hiking season guided walks are offered. When walking in a group, it's easy to strike up conversation with like-minded guests. Enjoy one fantastic view point after another, fresh air and good company.

Hiking holiday by lake Fuschl for single travellers 

Babbling brooks and the rustling of leaves in the breeze and birds twittering in the trees overhead. The Salzkammergut is wonderful region for hiking. Especially in the Lake Fuschl Region there are a multitude of hiking paths – around the lake or up into the surrounding mountains. Step by step you let go of the thoughts and worries of your day-to-day life and your mind becomes clearer. And when you reach the summit everything below you seems small, things are put into perspective and you simply enjoy the moment without reason or agenda. You too feel small in the midst of all the natural grandeur that surrounds you. Hiking sets you free alone, as a family or in a group.
