Why we can't wait to go back again: Grossarl is one of those places where e-bikes are not only tolerated but widely adopted, such is the tumult of the surrounding Hohe Tauern National Park. With more than 40 serviced alpine huts dotted among its cluster of flower-fringed mountain paths, this sprawling mountainscape has got it right; no walking or cycling trip is worthy of the name if not peppered by regular refreshment breaks. We look forward to ranking each of the apple strudel variants sampled along the way.
Where we're staying: Grossarler Hof
Before you go: Make sure your outdoors kit is on point. We're packing this sustainable World of Bamboo cutlery set, ready for picnics out on the meadows.
