In search of gems

  • Friday
  • Trip for the whole family 
  • We visit an Alpine lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park 
  • Hammer and protective glasses are provided for every child 
  • The search for “precious”  souvenir stones begins


This excursion takes us to a nearby Alpine lake in the local Hohe Tauern National Park in search of fascinating stones and “gems”. Each child is given a rock hammer and protective glasses and can head off in search of glistening crystals and fossils. While the kids are happy hammering away at rocks, parents can enjoy the magnificent surrounding countryside and scenery. And for the very brave, there’s the opportunity to take a quick dip in the icy waters of the mountain lake. Of course kids can take their very best finds home with them as a souvenir.
