Walking in Austria - Photo Gallery

Bogong owner Neil Blundy has just returned from an extensive gear testing trip to the Austrian Alps. Tough work, but someone has to do it! Watch out for some blogs on various aspects of European walking soon at Bogong Blog.

Europe is one of Neil's favourite walking areas. "I love the ability to walk among big mountains with a minimum of dramas. The walking culture in Austria is fantastic. I am sure it is my favourite hiking destination," says Neil.

While there he also shot some product videos on the Mont Sentinel pack which can be seen here and Exped hiking poles see here.
