Winter destination Carinthia
Skiing in all its facets, ice skating in a unique natural landscape, wellness and well-being in Carinthia's accommodation establishments, sledding, snowshoeing and enjoying Carinthian culinary delights at their best.
Winter holidays on wide, safe slopes, away from the crowds. On snow-covered alpine pastures with touring or cross-country skis, on frozen lakes skating in the open air or winter hiking in a snow-covered fairytale landscape. On the southern side of the Austrian Alps, the ski slopes are particularly sunny. One more reason why Carinthia is becoming increasingly popular as a winter sports destination, especially with families. The sunny slopes combined with southern hospitality, rounded off with Carinthian Alps-Adriatic cuisine, make for a perfect winter holiday.
