Carinthia’s natural landscape: A unique combination!
Directly in front of our 4* Children and Family Hotel Samerhof in Tröpolach is the hiking and mountain paradise of the Nassfeld region which reaches over the border into Italy. In this region there are over 1,000 kilometres of marked hiking trails (from 680 – 2,800 metres elevation) just waiting to be discovered. 26 themed hiking trails, numerous Nordic Walking trails and jogging routes to make your heart beat faster.
On the mountain: 10 sports circuits, 100 stations for rock climbing, 55 platforms to climb and 2.800 climbing scales for all levels of difficulty.
Record holding trail: The “Karnische Höhenweg” runs along the mountain ridge which forms the border between Austria and Italy. With a length of almost 160 km it is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Europe!
Our famous Garnitzen Gorge (ca. 10 km away) with a total length of almost 7 km and a change in elevation of 650 metres is also one of Carinthia’s most beautiful and wet natural sights.
The GeoPark Carnic Alps (ca. 10 km away) shows over 500 million years of alpine history in a more impressive way than anywhere else in the Alps!
Around 20 huts on mountain pastures and mountain tops in the surrounding areas are waiting to have you as their guest (seasonal opening hours).
Not enough?! Then go to the refreshing lakes to swim! For example Lake Pressegg, where you will find Samerhof Hotel’s own bathing area, and Weissensee are considered to be two of the most attractive lakes for swimming in Carinthia! No matter if you want swimming, diving, surfing or sailing lessons, with us you can do your own thing! On the same subject: Lake Pressegg reaches a water temperature of 30° C in the summer!
