Ski tours during a winter holiday in Carinthia

Enjoy wonderful winter landscapes away from the pistes

Carinthia offers much more in the way of winter sports than just the groomed pistes in the ski resorts. The slopes and peaks in the Lake Millstatt region are also perfect for ski touring. Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced skier, the region has tours of all difficulty levels so you are sure to find the right one for you.

Ski touring in the Nockberge mountains and the surrounding area

Sunny Carinthia on the south-eastern side of the Alps is a true paradise for ski tourers. Climb to the summit of nearby Goldeck, explore Nockberge National Park in winter or venture on a tour up one of the more challenging peaks. Accompanied by blue skies and rewarded with fabulous views, a ski tour is a wonderful journey through untouched winter landscapes.

Experience ski touring in Carinthia

Carinthia offers a wide selection of easy and more demanding ski tours in the Nockberge mountains, on the local mountain of Goldeck and in the nearby Reisseck group. Away from the pistes, you will find pure tranquillity and feel close to nature in a way you have never experienced before, as it slumbers in dreamy white silence. Enjoy stunning views of peaks and valleys from unique viewing points and finally stop in at a mountain hut to replenish your energy levels with delicious Austrian specialities.
