The Hohe Tauern are a truly breathtaking area. Over millions of years, natural processes have created the highest peaks in the country here and covered them with eternal ice. If you would like to experience this beautiful alpine world of adventure at first hand, the best way is to make your way to the Mölltaler Gletscher – a real highlight in Flattach and in the Hohe Tauern National Park Region in Carinthia.
High mountains hiking paradise
Do you wear sturdy shoes, good all-weather clothing and are you familiar with hiking in the high mountains?
Then you should tackle one of the wonderful hikes on the Mölltal Glacier. The Eissee Trail starts directly at the Eissee Panorama Restaurant and is an ideal excursion for families with children, just like the Duisburger Trail towards the Duisburger Hut. The Glacier Trail, the High Altitude Trail or the traverse to the Kleinfragant require more skill and you should have some mountaineering experience. With the Kärnten Card you get a free ascent and descent once a day in summer (Stollenbahn Gletscher Express & cable car Eissee/without sports equipment).
