Social Hike XL: John's Creek Canyon

The Gutenstein alps with their iconic John's Creek Canyon (Johannesbachklamm) are located only 1.5 hours South of Vienna. You definitely should have been there at least once. It's like visiting a mini-version of Switzerland, complete with grazing cows and snow-covered ridges afar.

Conveniently starting and ending at Vienna Main Station/Wien Hauptbahnhof, this tour comes packed with with spectacular impressions of canyon rocks, mountain meadows and idyllic forests. If quiet enough, we might even spot some free-roaming wildlife in the woods. Net hiking time through all these eye candies will be 3 hours.

Underway we'll have fun with ice breakers, discussion prompts and local trivia.
