Hiking can be so many things
Far away from the crowds, you can hike the Carnic Alps on leisurely loop trails, challenging summit hikes, wonderful multi-day tours, or lofty climbing routes for beginners and pros. Happiness has many faces here: whether on the 2,780m Hohe Warte, the highest mountain in the Carnic Alps, or on the sun terrace of one of the ten managed huts in the area. Discover your happy place at Wanderniki!
“There’s no other place where hiking is as connected to life as here.”
As part of our weekly guided hikes, we will take you along with us and show you the most beautiful places in the hiking paradise of Lesachtal.
The highlight? The weekly Wanderniki hike takes you to the Obergailer Alm and towards the lake of the same name with its floating picnic table. Taste the delicious traditional “Frigga” egg dish with us and let your gaze wander into the seemingly endless expanse of the Lienz mountains while you listen to Nikolaus (a.k.a. “Wanderniki”) play the flugelhorn.
