From Lake Königssee to Lake Wörthersee
Crossing the Alps via the Hohe Tauern-mountains into sunny Carinthia.
Through the romantic ‚Zauberwald‘-forest to Lake Hintersee with its idyllic location. Surrounded by steep towering rockfaces you venture deeper and deeper into the Berchtesgaden national park, a very special ‚gem of nature‘. Across the border to Austria, where you descend on the alp-adventure path towards the valley, past the roaring waterfalls of the Seisenbergklamm-ravine all the way to Weißbach.
Hotel example: Seisenbergklamm
In the morning, a short transfer to Maria Alm. From there you ascend to the Pinzgauer Grasberge-mountains, where a stupendous high-altitude hiking tour awaits: extensive alpine landscapes, quaint wooden huts and numerous panorama-peaks promise a picture-perfect hiking day. The quaint mountain village of Dienten situated at the foot of the majestic Mount Hochkönig is today’s Day Finish.

Today you hike through the renowned Gasteinertal-valley. Framed by stunning mountain scenery you are headed south along the gently babbling river with the impressive Hohe Tauern-massif always in plain view. Along the Gasteiner-high-altitude path you hike across deep gorges and via diverse promenade-paths reach the thermal springs of the historic spa resort Bad Gastein.
Todays queen’s stage as part of your crossing of the Alps will make your hearts leap for joy: along an ancient bridle path, which has connected the affluent state of Salzburg with the sunny Carinthia for centuries, you will step by step discover the Hohe Tauern-national park on foot. Through unique mountain scenery you get higher and higher up to the ‚Mallnitzer Tauern‘-pass crossing located at an altitude of 2450m. Enjoy a break in the quaint hut ‚Hagener Hütte‘ before you start your descent to Mallnitz whilst still besotted by the numerous giant peaks.
Having arrived in an incredible mountain world you proceed through the Seebachtal-valley around Lake Stappitzer See, towering above you are the shimmering glaciers of Mount Ankogel. Today there are several gorges to be tackled via spectacular via ferratas and across roaring waterfalls the rushing water accompanies you all the way into the Mölltal-valley with its picturesque location, where the little national park community of Obervellach – a climatic health-resort - promises pristine recuperation.
A short bus ride headed south through the tranquil Mölltal-valley to Spittal an der Drau. The Way of St. James leads you uphill to Mount Wolfsberg, across the Millstätter-mountain ridge and past the Lake Egelsee nature reserve you proceed blissfully to the deep blue waters of Lake Millstätter See. Then always along the lakeside into today’s Day Finish, the holiday and lakeside resort Döbriach.
Departure or extension
For the daily hiking tours with a walking time of up to 6 hours a good basic fitness level is prerequisite. You hike on varied hiking- and mountain paths, in parts also on gravel roads. Most slightly longer tours can be cut short by public transport. For some sections in the high mountains surefootedness is required. A hiking tour for enthusiasts loving idyllic alps, deep gorges and green-blue lakes all situated in high alpine surroundings.
