Get on your bike with our unforgettable micro adventure to Austria. Lying within the Alps, 68% of the country is at least 500m above sea level, so you can pretty much guess where our adventure is heading – for the mountains! Our Austrian holiday allows you to try out fat-biking in the snow, now that certainly beats hot-footing it around the hustle and bustle of a European capital. Fatbikes are equipped with wide tyres that run at a low tyre pressure, so they float on surfaces where normal mountain bikes would sink. The Austrian micro-adventure is based in the village of Ramsau with numerous hiking and ski tracks to follow, so if you think that your love will blossom with an active break in Austria, then this could be the perfect romantic getaway for you.
