Stunning Autumn time in Lungau Biosphere

Summer Biosphere walking holidays

Based from the St Martin Chalets eco-village, you will experience the very best of Austria’s stunning Lungau Biosphere Reserve. Almost completely self-sufficient and yet extremely luxurious, our chalets are a great place to get away from it all, set in in one of the most authentic and traditional regions of Austria.

Included in our Summer Biosphere walking holidays package are overnight stays in your own luxurious chalet – with heated floors, traditional Austrian fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, cozy lounge and beautiful outside terrace. The resort also features a sauna, a fitness room, natural pond and wireless Internet access for all guests. From here, our guides will help you explore the stunning scenery of this often forgotten part of Austria, visiting some of the local farm shops, restaurants and lodges in the area, and sampling all sorts of local delicacies. Every evening you’ll return to your comfortable chalet and, on one evening of your choice, you’ll be spoiled by Michelin star chef, Josef Steffner, whose team will serve you a delicious meal in your chalet.

The St Martin chalets are located on the outskirts of the pretty market town of St. Michael, just an hour from Salzburg. With countless hiking trails, bike paths and walking opportunities, your days will soon be filled with different adventures – all tailored around your own fitness levels and ambition!
