Hiking Holidays in Carinthia

Climbing and Hiking in the Region Villach

Mountains, hiking - pure nature at Naturel Hotels & Resorts

Carinthia, the hiking paradise for our Naturel holidaymakers, enchants with the mighty Karawanken mountains, behind which the Julian Alps in Italy and Slovenia appear and await you with wonderful hiking tours. The Mittagskogel, the Dobratsch Nature Park and the gentle Nockberge mountains are all within easy reach of the Naturel Hotels & Resorts. A leisurely stroll around Lake Faak or climbing a peak in the Karawanken, hiking from the Naturel Hotels is particularly varied.

And best of all, the hotels are located in the centre of Carinthia's magnificent natural landscape. Perfect for hikes with the whole family. Walking paths suitable for pushchairs are right on the doorstep during your holiday at the Naturel Hotels & Resorts, also ideal for running laps or for a Nordic walking tour. We recommend suitable walks with and without children of all ages. These hikes are of course tested by us in advance. And if you are looking for a beautiful summit, a via ferrata tour or more, we have great mountain guides on hand who will accompany you competently through the mountains on your holiday and also offer courses such as rope technique, climbing level certificates and much more.

At Naturel Hotels & Resorts, a love of nature and an enthusiasm for hiking are lived out. Special highlight: our Naturel Hotel Village SCHÖNLEITN has even been awarded the European Hiking Seal of Quality and has been a member of Wanderhotels Europa since 2019.

Get your climbing licence on holiday

Take your climbing licence home with you so that you can use the climbing hall safely or secure your child yourself during their first climbing experiences:

  • Top Rope climbing licence, level I for beginners
  • Climbing licence for lead climbing, level II for advanced climbers

You can acquire both climbing licences during your holiday at the Naturel Hotels & Resorts under the guidance of a state-certified mountain and ski guide. Our partner, the 4 Jahreszeiten Alpinschuhle, is on hand with help and advice. Of course, there are many other climbing activities for beginners, for families or for very ambitious climbers in the immediate vicinity of the Naturel Hotels & Resorts on Lake Faak and on the Gerlitzen Alpe - ideal for anyone who wants to experience an active holiday.

High ropes parks in the Villach region

The high ropes parks on Lake Faak, Lake Ossiach and the Gerlitzen Alpe are ideal for families. You can reach the Hochhinauf high ropes park on the Taborhöhe in just a few minutes, as it is located in the immediate vicinity of our Naturel hotel village SEELEITN. An excursion is always worthwhile, if only for the breathtaking view of Lake Faak.
