The 19 most popular hiking tours on Lake Wörthersee Enjoyable hiking away from steep peaks

It doesn't always have to be a summit. Often you just want to get out of the house and be physically active, but at the same time enjoyably roam through the woods and meadows and enjoy nature to the fullest. This is exactly when the Wörthersee hiking trails are the right choice, and in every season. In summer, the shady mixed forests are convincing, providing pleasantly temperate hikes even on the hottest summer days. In autumn, it is precisely these forests that reflect the beauty of Carinthia's Indian summer in the most diverse shades of yellow and red. In winter, on the other hand, the gentle, not too demanding slopes ensure wonderful surefootedness, even when it has snowed. Whereas spring with its spring flowers makes the forest floors appear in all colors.

And the best thing about hiking along the Wörthersee is that almost in every season you can be brought back to the starting point with the Wörthersee boat trip! So it is best to start at one of the numerous landing stages, then you can also experience the lake from its most beautiful side! All guests who stay in one of the numerous accommodation facilities in the Wörthersee region receive the Wörthersee Plus Card. This allows you to return by boat at half price! It's best to ask for it at your reception!

Hiking along Lake Wörthersee is an absolute highlight for hikers and nature lovers. But also away from Lake Wörthersee, along the Keutschacher 4 Seental, many beautiful trails can be found.

In combination with the great offer of first-class regional cuisine and internationally awarded restaurants, as well as the great wellness offers of many Wörthersee hotels, this results in a first-class hiking destination that leaves nothing to be desired!

TIP:For all mountain runners there is also something special: the Wörthersee Ultra Trail. The Wörthersee Ultra Trail is a mountain running event where, depending on the format, runners are required to cover a distance of 21 to 72 kilometers and up to 2600 meters in altitude. If running is too hectic for you, you also have the possibility to walk the distance in the course of the 21km Trailwalk!
