A golden eagle high above, thundering waterfalls far below, the familiar chirrup of grasshoppers on the meadows and the distinctive smell of pinewood in the forests – Tirol is a picture-book region in the heart of the Alps where visitors can escape the stress of modern life and get back to nature. The region is home to several nature parks as well as Austria’s only officially designated national park, the Hohe Tauern National Park. Here, between the towering peaks and the crystal-clear lakes, you can finally breathe freely and enjoy some of the last remaining untouched areas of wilderness in Central Europe. Base yourself in one of the many pretty mountain villages and draw on the knowledge of the local guides to learn about the flora, fauna, culture and history which makes Tirol unique.
