Winter hiking in Carinthia

Winter walks by the lake or winter hiking in the mountains

Crunchy snow, clear winter air and blue skies: when the nature around Lake Millstatt goes into winter hibernation and snow covers the beautiful landscape, it is a glorious time to enjoy winter hikes and snowshoeing in the fresh air.

Winter walks in and around Millstatt

Take a walk around Millstatt from Hotel am See****Die Forelle and admire the elegant villas from the k.u.k. (Royal and Imperial) period. Alternatively, you can stay by the shore of the lake and enjoy a nice walk by the water. Or why not venture to Sommeregg Castle where you can enjoy wonderful panoramic lake views?

Winter hiking and snowshoeing around Lake Millstatt

Lake Millstatt is surrounded by an alpine plateau located at an altitude of about 800 metres above sea level. This wonderful natural setting attracts hikers and day-trippers in summer and can also be enjoyed in winter when covered with a layer of soft white snow. Goldeck mountain is also only about 15 minutes away from Millstatt and is a wonderful place to explore on snowshoes.

The charm of snowshoeing in Carinthia

The mountains in Carinthia are home to wonderful ski pistes and ski tours, as well as great destinations for snowshoeing. The Nockberge mountains offer plenty of easy to intermediate hikes thanks to their gently rounded peaks. With big snowshoes on your feet, you can easily traverse through snowy terrain and reach vantage points that would otherwise remain unseen. When you are ready for a break, it will not be far to the next mountain hut or restaurant where you can warm up with a hot drink and good Austrian cuisine.

Guided snowshoeing

If you would like to experience the allure of snowshoeing, you can head out and explore the snowy mountains with a mountain guide. Tours will take you up to the plateau around Lake Millstatt, to the wintry Millstätter Alm or up to the summit of Goldeck mountain. Enjoy the pure tranquillity of nature and discover the most beautiful spots in the region.

Winter holidays in Carinthia

Walk along prepared winter hiking trails or put on your snowshoes and pad through soft snow as it glistens in the sun. A winter holiday in Carinthia is full of opportunities, whether skiing, ski touring, cross-country skiing or enjoying a winter walk by the lake. The team at Hotel am See****Die Forelle look forward to receiving your enquiry.
