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. All of them are impeccably trained, with established roots in the Hohe Tauern valleys. They know every nook and cranny of the National Park, no matter how well hidden. So a snowshoe walking-tour together with National Park Rangers will be an unforgettable trip of exploration!
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.

The National Park Kärnten Card offers you free admission to more than 100 places to visit in the whole of Carinthia, super reductions with more than 50 Bonus partners, as well as top-rate local services.
The National Park is a hidden treasure. And this treasure is there to be discovered:

What could be nicer than exploring the idyllic, snow-covered winter landscape of the Hohe Tauern National Park on a winter walking-tour? Whether you prefer snowshoes, or not: you will surely never get bored on our richly varied hiking routes.
The most romantic way of experiencing the National Park winter. Let yourself be transported through snow-covered valleys in a horse-drawn sleigh. Wrap yourself in a warm blanket and just rejoice in the wonderful winter landscape.
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.
Trekking – from one place to another. In rhythm with nature and looking it in the eye. This is the magic to which more and more people are yielding. In Nepal, in New Zealand, or on the road to Santiago. And in the Hohe Tauern too! From refuge hut to refuge hut, past mountain lakes and tarns, waterfalls and glaciers, and up to high passes. Time and again in the valleys and mountains new miniature worlds will reveal themselves before your very eyes.
The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest protected area in the Alps. It’s an island of ecological diversity in the heart of Europe – and one of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth! Our concern is to bring you closer to this natural world of wonders, whilst filling your holiday with unforgettable first-hand experiences.
