A Seven-Night Holiday In Austria For 2 People
Situated in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps, the Zillertal is a region that for many years has been hugely popular with both Austrian and international visitors looking to immerse themselves in the area's pure nature. Famous in wintertime for its excellent skiing and snowboarding, during spring and summer the region offers a variety of other attractions for visitors seeking outdoor adventures. Thirty per cent of of this unspoilt region is a designated conservation area - the Zillertal Alps Mountain Nature Park - making it both a feast for the senses and thrilling to hike or bike through. The area is also particularly renowned for its local produce, especially its meat and dairy products: the traditional Zillertal Tuxer cattle yield sought-after, richly marbled beef and sweet haymilk, which gets its distinctive flavour from the cows' diet of fragrant alpine herbs - veronica, health milkwort, yarrow and lady's mantle - and the freshest spring water. Visit the Adventure Alpine Dairy Zillertal in Mayrhofen and sample the extensive and delicious choice of delicacies.
While you're here, make sure you explore everything this wonderful region has to offer - the Zillertal Activcard has been created to give visitors and their families an affordable way to discover the Zillertal in all its guises and take part in a myriad of activities: the pass includes entrance to outdoor swimming pools, transport on cable cars and most of the public transportation in the region, as well as access to the Königsleiten observatory, with a visit to the planetarium included. The card is available for six, nine or 12-day periods, and also includes discounts on excursion destinations both in and outside of the Zillertal.

•a pair of economy class tickets from London to Zillertal
•seven nights for two people in a four-star hotel with half-board and a welcome Schnapps
