The most beautiful hiking tours throughout the Nockberge Mountains

In the Nockberge Mountains of Austria, hiking is more than just a walk: it is an entire alpine wellness experience Between the bathing paradises of the numerous Carinthian lakes and the main ridge of the Alps you’ll find the wonderful hiking area of Bad Kleinkirchheim. The Nockberge Mountains are a hidden gem for active holiday makers.

Mild slopes, romantic alpine meadows, clear blue mountain lakes and untouched nature – the Nockberge Biosphere Park is considered to be one of the most beautiful hiking areas in Austria.

The choice of hiking trails in the Nockberge Mountains is diverse:

Before you head out on the mountain or the trail, be sure to have the following items with you in your pack:

You may also wish to bring binoculars as well, as there is plenty to discover in the Nockberge Biosphere Park: such as groundhogs that peek out of their holes, fawns that wander shyly through the forest, and, for those who walk lightly, there may even be a glimpse of a wood grouse.

Speick plant

All that blooms for you during your hike in Carinthia

The Speick plant has found a perfect plot of land on which to grow. It is only found on the picturesque slopes of the Nockberge Mountains. The herbal aroma of the plant has a stimulating, harmonising and relaxing effect, all at the same time. The Speick hikes are a true hiking and wellness inducing experience. In July and August the fresh aroma in the air is particularly noticeable.
