Highlights

 
  • Follow the famous "Peace Trail" in the Carnic Alps.

  • Discover tunnels, caves and remains of World War I.

  • Contemplate dazzling views of the surrounding peaks.

 

The Carnic Alps are located on the border between Austria and Italy, between the Dolomites and the Julian Alps.

What I offer is a hut-to-hut 6-day hiking tour along the famous “Peace Trail” (in Italian, Sentiero della Pace). This is a 155 km hiking trail with a strong natural and historical appeal.

Also called Carnic High Route, this trail crosses an area where tough First World War battles were fought. Today it is an open-air museum, with tunnels, caves and remains of brick military roads.

On the other hand, this alpine region is beautiful and varied. The hiking trail goes around amazing lakes such as the Hundstrichsee and the Wolayersee, and allows panoramic views of imposing mountains such as Coglians, the highest peak of the Carnic Alps (2,780 m).

After a first day of briefing, we will walk for five days through the most beautiful paths of the Alps, immersed in a majestic and serene landscape. Every night warm beds and excellent food and wine will be waiting for us in the mountain huts.

So, if you want to escape from daily life routine and have this once in a lifetime experience, please contact us. We will be glad to organize this stunning hiking tour around the Carnic Alps for you!
