Full description
Start the 5-hour trip from Salzburg with a drive through the famous Salzkammergut en route to Hallstatt, known as the Pearl of the Salzkammergut. The route will take you through a number of charming villages, as you listen to an introduction to Hallstatt and the Salzkammergut. If you wish to do the Hallstatt Skywalk, the guide will collect the money for the ticket on the bus.  On arrival in Hallstatt you might begin your visit with a mountain train ride up to the entrance of the world’s oldest salt mines (though the tour does not visit the mine itself), where you can admire the views down onto Hallstatt.  In Hallstatt you will have 2.5 hours to take in the sights. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the lake and marvel how the houses above you seem to cling onto the mountainside. Pass by the Mullbach waterfall and visit the local museum. A must-see attraction is the Bone House behind the Catholic church, which will give you an interesting view into local family life (admission not included). You’ll then begin the return journey via Abtenau and Russbach to Gosau, where you’ll see the Gosau Lake and admire the views of the Dachtsein mountains.

A much anticipated tour. Luckily, there wasn't that much tourists, so we got the mini bus all to ourselves. The one and a half ride going to Hallstatt was enjoyable and informational. I had bits of information about Austria, Salzburg and the like. Saw some the picturesques view of Salzburg, over guide made us even close our eyes to surprise us with such a beautiful view.

It was an awesome trip. I really enjoyed it. The tour guide has given us alot of info while we were on the way to Hallstatt. She was quite easy to understand and was on time to pick-up from the drop-off location. I would recommend this trip to everyone looking for an excitement for a day.

We travelled in a mini-van via the country road to Hallstatt. When we arrived we have 2.5 hours of free time to explore. This tour is essentially a picturesque return mini-van ride from Salzburg to Hallstatt with a guide to share some information about the area and an opportunity to stop for some photos along the way. Although it was a quick stop in Hallstatt, it gave enough time to see a few things and enjoy the scenery.
