A Gentler Winter
Man does not live on skiing alone...
Perhaps you are not so interested in the skiing circus and would rather have peace and quiet in winter, seeking adventure away off the beaten path? In the Nock Mountains around Kirchleitn you will find nature in a wintry deep sleep and will feel its breath in the stillness of the mountains and forests.
Wintertime? No, it is hiking time!
Do you know how good a winter forest smells? Go on a winter hike or strap on your snowshoes and hear nothing but your own heartbeat and the crunch of snow under your feet. Maybe you’ll see a forest dweller on the search for food … a 60-kilometre-long network of well-groomed winter hiking trails winds through the region around Bad Kleinkirchheim and takes you to lovely viewpoints and mountain cabins where you can warm up with a Carinthian snack and hot cup of tea.
Pure snowflake magic!
When the lakes are covered with a thick sheet of ice, which glistens and sparkles like diamonds, lace up your ice skates and elegantly glide over the ice. If you’d rather be a bit more athletic, but still don’t want to forgo the peacefulness of winter, cross-country skiing is the ideal activity for you. You can find moments of happiness and contemplation on a ski tour.
Romantics and wild youngsters will fall victim to the magic of evening tobogganing, a horsedrawn carriage ride, or a torch-lit hike. After getting out into the clear mountain air, you can head back to your apartment and cuddle together in front of the tiled stove, looking forward to your warm, comfy bed where you will have sweet dreams about the next easy-going winter adventure.
