Long distance hiking
Long distance hikes have their special charm. Spending several days in nature, just switch off and go hiking. The path is the goal until you reach your destination.Through Bad Goisern, Obertraun, Gosau and Hallstatt leads the 350 km long "Berge Seen Trail", the 235 km long "Salzalpensteig" and the 121 km long Dachstein Circular Trail.
Not so far away but still extendable to several days are the 24 km long circular hiking trail around the Gosaukamm and the only 8 km long Nature Trail on the Dachstein Krippenstein, which explains the flora and fauna as a signposted theme trail.
