Highlights and places of interest along the route:


The Karnische Höhenweg, KHW 403 for short, is a unique experience for hikers, geologists and nature lovers. Already on the first stage you can enjoy incomparable views of the Sesto Dolomites and the UNESCO World Heritage. The more exposed part will be bypassed generously. The eastern part of the high-level trail is much easier. Again and again you pass smaller and larger lakes, whereby the Wolyaersee with its crystal-clear water clearly stands out. You hike on through the realm of marmots and soon wide plateaus and lush flower meadows dominate the picture. Finally, the second largest city in Carinthia - Villach - awaits you. Let the journey end in this city with its cosy, mediterranean way of life.

Characteristics of the route:

The easy hike runs along well-marked mountain and hiking trails. The tour is suitable for everyone with a good basic condition. Climbing skills are not necessary.
The hiking tour is suitable for children aged 14 and over.
