Overland Track

Both Nick and Matt were excellent guides and a credit to the organisation. Their enthusiasm & knowledge was really impressive. The trip was excellent, well organised and group size was good and of course the scenery was spectacular - Thank you!

Austria

Austria includes much of the mountainous territory of the eastern Alps. The country contains many snowfields, glaciers, and snowcapped peaks, the highest being the Grossglockner (3,819 m). The Danube is the principal river and a wonder to cycle alongside. Beautiful forests and woodlands cover much of Austria's countryside.

The Weather in Austria

The Alps serve as a watershed for Europe's three major kinds of weather systems that influence Austrian weather. The Atlantic maritime climate from the northwest is characterized by lowpressure fronts, mild air from the Gulf Stream, and precipitation. It has the greatest influence on the northern slopes of the Alps, the Northern Alpine Foreland, and the Danube Valley.


As a rule, Atlantic maritime weather systems bring snow, and continental weather systems help keep it. However, a predominance of cold, dry continental systems or warm Mediterranean ones inevitably postpone the beginning of the ski season. In the summer, Mediterranean high-pressure systems bring warm, sunny weather.
