The Alpe Adria Trail
Long distance hiking tour in Carinthia
Fancy an ultimate hiking adventure? Do you belong to those hikers for whom the trail just canâ€™t be long enough and who gather momentum only after a few kilometres in their shoes? Then the Alpe Adria Trail is the right trail for you! The hiking trail leads past the Kirchleitn holiday village so that you can take a break from the strains and gather new energy for the next stage â€“ the Kirchleitn saunas, the swimming pond and the good food in the restaurants are a real pleasure.
The Alpe Adria Trail focuses on the pleasure of hiking. The stages have around 20 km each and can be completed in about 6 hours. Consistently marked signs give you the necessary orientation.
Start: GroÃŸglockner, Destination: the Adriatic
The long distance hiking trail starts at the foot of the highest mountain of Austria, the GroÃŸglockner, leads through the Carinthian lake and mountain landscape, over the border to Slovenia, then Italy and finally ends at the Adriatic Sea in the village of Muggia. Cross-border hiking which could not be more beautiful. A good hiking infrastructure, culinary guesthouses, excursion destinations and accommodations along the trail and last but not least the marvellous and varied landscapes which you pass stage after stage.
In total, the Alpe Adria Trail consists of 43 stages and has a total distance of 750 kilometres. Travelling by foot from the Alps to the sea, this is an adventure that numerous hikers embark on every year, no matter in which direction. Find likeminded people, hike together for some time and get to know your inner self during the hike. As the saying goes: The path is the goal. What you experience along the way and who you meet will form lasting memories.
Those who prefer hiking in the closer surroundings are of course free to move their legs in the Nock mountains around St. Oswald in picturesque Carinthia.
