Walking on the Alpe-Adria-Trail from the mountains all the way to the sea
Walking in paradise. Dear Adam, dear Eve: Your paradise must have been equally beautiful. We only reveal this much: The Alpe-Adria-Trail has paradise like qualities. The name of this trail says it all- 750 fascinating kilometres stretching from Austria’s highest mountain, the Großglockner, to Muggia at the Adriatic Sea.
A total of 43 legs take you through the three regions of Carinthia, Slovenia as well as Friaul-Julisch Venetia. This includes the unique region of Villach of course. Towards the sun. Hiking enthusiasts trek inside the heart of Carinthia, via the Wöllaner Nock in Arriach to the sunny peak of the Gerlitzen Alpe. From here they walk across shady forests and then reach the historic monastery Stift Ossiach situated at the enchanted Ossiacher See (Lake Ossiach). After a short detour via the sophisticated Velden am Wörthersee they will follow the path along the Drauradweg (bike path along the river Drau) to the emerald green Faaker See. One last longing look from the Baumgartnerhöhe towards Villach, then they are taken in the direction of Kranjska Gora and Slovenia and closer to the Adriatic Sea. Alpe Adria Trail round-tour. Starting point of this unique short variant of the Alpe-Adria Trail is the region Villach. 130 kilometres covered in seven daily legs take you through Carinthia, Slovenia and Friaul-Julisch Venetia.
