Alpe-Adria-Trail selected

This is the Alpe-Adria-Trail – a dream of a trail in the Garden of Eden, which brings together the three cultures in the Alps-Adriatic region.

“Alpe-Adria-Trail selected” offers you the unique opportunity of hiking the most stunning stages of the trail in Carinthia – from Nationalpark Hohe Tauern, the largest national park in the Alps, via lake and mountain encounters by the turquoise waters of Lake Millstätter See, through to trekking on the shores of Carinthia’s most beautiful lakes, such as the famous Lake Wörthersee.

Convivial inns are waiting to spoil tired but satisfied hikers with the delicious Alps-Adriatic cuisine, while the convenient Alpe-Adria-Trail mobility service is there for you whenever you need it with luggage transport and transfers! The tour will be led by a mountain hiking guide from our Großglockner Alpine school, who is as experienced as he is attentive and is well versed in our cultural history. As a special bonus you will receive the Alpe-Adria Kärnten Card, with which you can travel here toll-free on the most beautiful panoramic road in the Alps, the Großglockner High Alpine Road, and visit dozens of attractions and destinations along the trail free of charge. Thus for instance you can look forward to a boat ride on Lake Millstätter See on your well-earned rest day.
Our tip: While you are here, book the exclusive lake experience “Bay hiking with picnic” as an extra on your rest day!

“Alpe-Adria-Trail selected” will open up a superlative long distance hiking experience to you and is sure to make you want even more – such as the trail along the Soca, the most beautiful mountain torrent in the Alps, or the trail stages through the vineyards of Friuli to the sea!
