Glistening snow crunching under your boots, ice-blue skies, crystal-clear air. The entire Lesach Valley is an enchanting snowy winter wonderland. Inhale the dreamlike snow-covered landscape, can't get enough of the picture-book scenery all around. Listen to the winter silence in the lonely forest or sink into the steaming whirlpool in the middle of the snow. Inside, a crackling fireplace warms both body and soul, while outside the sun bids farewell with a last sparkle until the next morning. Here with us they still exist - the winters like back then!
When a thick blanket of snow covers the Lesach Valley like a white mantle in winter, Europe's most natural valley is transformed into a snow-covered paradise for gentle winter sports far away from the hustle and bustle and mass tourism. Those who travel to the valley between the Carnic Alps in the south and the Lienz Dolomites in the north during the cold season discover a dreamy, magical wintry setting that has hardly changed in the past decades. In winter, the remote valley in the south of Carinthia shifts down another gear. Away from après-ski and the hustle and bustle of the slopes, winter here is just like it was in the old days: silent. Nature lovers and peace seekers hike through white landscapes on silent soles and climb a mountain on snowshoes or touring skis to be rewarded at the end with an impressive view of snow-covered mountain peaks.
Thanks to their pristine nature, the Carnic Alps and Lienz Dolomites are considered an absolute insider tip for ski tourers. In addition, the more than 60 kilometres of cross-country ski trails are freshly prepared every day. The Grenzlandloipe offers friends of Nordic sports great conditions along the Gail and the Carinthian-East Tyrolean border. With a bit of luck, you will be overtaken by professionals such as the exceptional Norwegian athlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen - who often skis his tracks in neighbouring Obertilliach. Varied and free cross-country skiing pleasure is offered by the small but fine Sonnenloipe in St. Lorenzen.
What is the best way to end a cold, wintry day in the evening? With a warm fire in the fireplace, with alpine wellness in the relaxing Almwellness Resort Tuffbad or with a delicious dinner in one of the inns that focus on high-quality food. Finally, the Lesach and Gail valleys are also home to the world's first Slow Food Travel destination. Slow Food is a counter-movement to the fast-food craze of modern times, an attitude to life. Here in the Lesachtal - in the culinary south of Austria - guests travel together with their hosts to the roots of good taste. You don't just look over the shoulder of the producers, but also lend a hand yourself and gain valuable knowledge.
Whether nature lovers come to Lesachtal for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking or ski touring, something automatically happens here that we have completely forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life: Not holding on, but letting go and coming to rest in the soundless nature of the Lesachtal. The pleasantly authentic hospitality of the people of Lesachtal ultimately ensures total relaxation.
