The Alpe Adria Trail is the new star in the European long distance hiking heavens! Directly from the Grossglockner, the route starts, charged with the energy from the high mountain area of rocks and ice, through a landscape suffused with light across Carinthia, the Italian Friuli region and Slovenia, and finally finds its destination, the fishing village of Muggia at the Adriatic coast.
Explore the Winter Wonderland on snowshoes. Best would be in the company of our fully-trained National Park Rangers! They are the experts in the Hohe Tauern National Park.

So a snowshoe walking-tour together with National Park Rangers will be an unforgettable trip of exploration!

For millions of years the elemental force of water has moulded and shaped the mountainous landscape of the Hohe Tauern! In the process it has left behind for us masterpieces of the Creation: waterfalls plummeting down into the valleys over sky-high rock faces and through deep and mysterious gorges.
“Seven Summits”? This phrase makes tacit reference to the highest summits of the seven continents. Don’t worry though; we don’t intend to climb Mount Everest! But we have selected seven terrific target summits for you, all in the Hohe Tauern National Park. We cordially invite you to an unforgettable expedition across the entire National Park!
Myths, legends, TauernGold: walk through the history of the region along gorgeous trails in a terrific landscape!
It’s relaxing, a great experience, climate friendly and really good value: in 2011 the National Park Hikers’ Bus will operate from 18 June to 18 September, taking you to the most beautiful places for hiking in the National Park. In many cases our National Park Rangers and mountain guides will already be there waiting to accompany you on your explorations in the world of natural wonders!
Snow conditions you can rely on, at altitudes of up to 3,000m, in a sunny location to the south of the main ridge of the Alps.

"Ski Carinthia" offers all this; at its top-of-the-range Grossglockner/Heiligenblut, Moell Valley Glacier/Flattach and Ankogel/Mallnitz skiing areas!
For centuries adventurous tradesmen known as "sumpters" transported wine, salt and gold to far away towns and ports on the backs of their packhorses. Immerse yourself in those long lost golden times and explore the old trade routes of the National Park on horseback.
