Swimming fun and lake experiences in Carinthia

Carinthia is not known as the province of the lakes without reason. This South Eastern corner of Austria has long been a favorite among swimming lovers and nature enthusiasts, offering variety in abundance to enjoy the refreshing water to the fullest. Some 1,200 lakes, including mountain, marsh and bathing lakes, invite to swim, do water sports or regenerate in Carinthia. The harmonious interplay of mountains and lakes amid a glorious scenery attracts countless visitors to Carinthia each year. The waters of the Carinthian lakes sparkle attractively in the sunlight with color shadings that range from a Caribbean turquoise to sky blue to a dark fir green. Water pure enough to drink and bathtub temperatures of up to 25 degree Celsius delight not only active holidaymakers and families with kids but also sun worshippers and those in search of a peaceful break. Sports schools at the lakes Millstättersee, Feldsee and Wörthersee score with action-packed offers including wake boarding, water skiing, crazy banana, tubing and panoramic flights across the lakes. Lake enthusiasts will discover the most idyllic spots while hiking the unspoiled shore lines, canoeing or stand up paddle boarding.
