Description:

This hiking trip offers the unique experience of discovering three countries in one week. The south of Austria meets Italy and Slovenia. Experience an exciting and easy hiking trip in impressive mountain and natural landscapes characterized by the three cultures of the countries. The start is in Villach. The up-and-coming town on the Drava River boasts a beautiful city center and a charming, Mediterranean atmosphere. Here you can feel the near south. In Italy you walk through a small part of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. This is characterized by the Carnic ridge of over 100 km in length, between the catchment areas of Drau, Gail and Tagliamento, and the Julian Alps, which are still the border between Slovenian and Friulan language area. A highlight of the tour is certainly the Italian pilgrimage town of Monte Lussari. No less impressive is the Slovenian part of the hiking tour, as it leads to the Triglav National Park and the fashionable ski resort of Kranjska Gora - also known as the Kitzbühel of Slovenia.
