Whether accompanied by a guide or on your own – allow yourself to be mesmerised and enjoy your winter holiday in Carinthia to the full. Untouched Sunshine Moments in the great outdoors!

When the slopes of the Carinthian Nockberge Mountains are covered in a thick blanket of snow, ski tourers across the Bad Kleinkirchheim ski area are in their element. Ski tours of different difficulty levels lead off the beaten track into the snow-covered mountain world that surrounds.

Tours to the Mallnock and Falkert are especially popular.
And the region’s highlight: the Nockberge-Trail!

  • Ascent and descent are only permitted with a valid ski or ascent pass (NEW!), or a ski tour day or season pass, issued by the Bad Kleinkirchheimer Bergbahnen.
  • The Top Ski Pass Carinthia & East Tyrol is not valid.
  • Ascent is only possible at the sides of the slopes.
  • Please keep dogs on a leash.

The multi-day tour leads through the Carinthian ski resorts of Katschberg, Innerkrems, Turracher Höhe and Bad Kleinkirchheim. The tour is only possible in this direction, from Katschberg to Bad Kleinkirchheim.
