Emeralds, primeval forest and more: the holiday region Hohe Tauern National Park is known not only for its precious stones but also for its invaluable tranquillity. Looking to switch off, two girls who are usually always online and reachable went on the search for relaxation. Angie and Julia, both bloggers and Instagrammers are from Vienna.
Because it’s more fun for two
Since Angie has had her dog Pippa, she goes more often out into nature than before and quite often, her best friend Julia goes with her. Both Angie and Julia are studying in Vienna. On their blogs Hello Pippa and Jules Vogel, you will come across fashion posts, food inspirations and lots of sports. The latter is a passion that connects the two – whether it’s yoga, jogging or hiking. Once it gets exhausting, that’s when the girls’ eyes begin to really sparkle.
The Hohe Tauern National Park through the mobile lens
For their journey of discovery through SalzburgerLand, these two wished to be as much as possible in nature. On arrival in the Hohe Tauern National Park, not only the girls were impressed but also dog Pippa.
Nature is a high priority for these two girls. Even though Angie and Julia are still very young, they have a very heavy working life with studying and full time blogging demanding their attention almost 24 hours a day. Switching off is almost impossible, both on the phone and in the head. A trip into nature is a successful escape from the stressful everyday life for both of them. And where better to do that than over 1,800km² of protected nature?
Last weekend I felt like I was in another world. The people, the nature, the discussions- everything in Pinzgau was so carefree, relaxing and just easy. – Angie aka Hello Pippa
Angie’s and Julia’s highlights in SalzburgerLand
Climbing in the Kitzloch Gorge
Even though neither had ever completed a fixed rope course, they dared to enter the Kitzloch Gorge and completely changed their perspective over just a few meters. Special highlight: the architect of the climbing trail himself led the two sporty girls over the obstacles. And that at the age of 68!
The Emerald Way
Hiking between water and forest – the Emerald Way in the Habach Valley is the ideal blend of tension and relaxation and invites you to linger with its sparkling waterholes, grass-green meadows and forests.
Rauriser Primeval Forest
In the Rauriser Primeval Forest, everything is like it was many, many years ago. The National Park Rangers ensure that the natural ecosystem can develop and lead nature-loving guests through “their” forest. Here you encounter preserved trees and ponds from bygone days.
Angie’s and Julia’s conclusion
All in all, Angie and I had in Salzburg a beautiful, relaxing, but also active and exciting weekend. It was a complete change of scenery, and you cannot imagine how good it was for us to spend days in nature where there was no mobile reception for hours, and to breathe fresh air again. – Julia aka Jules Vogel
Hohe Tauern National Park – the second
As just one visit to the Hohe Tauern National Park is not enough, a few months later Angie and Julia got their Instagram friend Stefanie, aka Stefaniegoldmarie, on board and they spent another three days discovering the region. This time they went to Rauris and to Uttendorf/Weißsee, where the three girls got a crash course in gold panning and explored the wonderful summit world in Weißsee. A hike through the Wiegen Forest and the exclusive opportunity to go stand up paddling on the Grünsee Lake perfectly rounded off their second trip to the Hohe Tauern National Park.
