Magic Moments

in the Nockberge Mountains

Holidaymakers wishing to immerse themselves in the silence of nature can do so with the ‘Magic Moments’ program allowing them to enjoy up close the magnificence of protected areas. Accompanied by experienced guides, visitors get the chance to watch rare animal species, discover native plants and their beneficial effects or get a taste of the region’s culinary highlights. Those looking for a way to embrace Carinthia’s unique landscape with all the senses are in the best of hands with the Natur-Aktiv hosts in Carinthia. 

Hiking and bathing in the Nockberge Biosphere Park

During the summer months, hikers not only roam Carinthia’s beautiful Nockberge mountains under expert guidance of a Biosphere Park ranger, but also get the chance to treat themselves to a relaxing soak in Austria‘s oldest farmer’s bathing house. The adventurous-filled day out in the mountains comes to an end with a heavenly homemade pasta dish.

Sunrise hike to Falkert
Summit in the morning

There are few experiences like watching the sun rise over the soft rolling hills of the Nockberge mountains. The early-morning hike up to the summit cross is rewarded with spectacular views: bask in the magical atmosphere as the mountain peaks are illuminated in a red-golden light by the first rays of the morning. Back in the valley at Falkertsee, you can settle down to a hearty farmers’ breakfast.
