Outdoor Speik adventures
Relax where the Speik grows – a rejuvenation for body and soul
Outdoor Speik adventures: when walking over the Speik covered hills your body and soul will find peace. The word wellbeing is taken literally here: among the aromatic mountains and the high altitude of the southern Alps, hiking is undoubtedly a great way to promote your health.
Get away from everything and come to the Nockberge Mountains! Those who are tired and weak from their daily routines can regain all they have lost in the Nockberge Mountains: inner peace, a sensation of happiness and moments of strength. Growing in the mountains is a plant that helps with exhaustion: Speik. With its tangy-spicy aroma, this valerian relative is both harmonising and stimulating at the same time. Thanks to a combination of this plant and the surrounding landscape, it is easy to switch off your mind here and let the pristine nature of the Nockberge Mountains carry your thoughts away.
