Description

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!

And if you want to try a similar trip but in the Alps, you should check out this 6-day hiking tour in Gran Paradiso.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
