Alpe-Adria trail

austriaThe Alpe-Adria trail is about 700 kilometres long and incorporates three different countries; Austria, Italy and Slovenia. It leads from the foot of the highest mountain in Austria; the Grossglockner (3.798 metres) to the Adriatic sea.

The trail is divided into 43 well-signposted stages, each around 17 kilometres long, so about 6 hours walking each day. The non-alpine areas and minimal difference in altitude is superb for ramblers. In the spring and summer the mediterranean temperatures make for long days and great weather which are perfect conditions for walking.

This tour concentrates on the best stages of the trail in Carinthia, the southernmost province of Austria. The tour leaves from Nationalpark Hohe Tauern and goes via other lakes and mountains to Lake Millstätter See (where you can take a boat ride) and to Lake Wörthersee. The rivers, streams and wildlife that you encounter on your journey will definitely be something to write home about.

The characteristic inns and friendly locals will make sure you get watered and fed with tasty Alps-Adriatic cuisine and there is also the Alpe-Adria Trail mobility service available for anyone who gets tired or needs to transport luggage.

The experienced tour guide from the Grossglockner Alpine school is very well prepared and attentive and will be available for any questions or doubts.

If you have time, make sure you take the trail along the most amazing mountain torrent in the Alps “the Soca” or take a walk through the gorgeous vineyards of Fruili and do some wine tasting! Whatever you decide to do, the Alpe-Adria trail will be an experience to remember.
