From the Carnic Milky Way to scenic-view trails

Guided hikes in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region

Hiking is a great opportunity for getting to know the region, nature and the people – at the same time, you can do something positive for your body and mind.

Or explore the regional meadows and learn more about their herbs during a family hike? The guided hikes on the sunny side of the Alps make these hiking dreams become a reality … A quick dip in one of the many mountain lakes or a relaxing swim at Lake Presseggersee or Lake Weissensee – that’s summer joy between mountains and lakes!

The new hiking highlight: Carnic Milky Way

Hiking across what used to be the bottom of the primordial ocean or learning more about the art of making high-quality dairy products.

Choose your preferred topic and go on a unique hike with your whole family!
