    Warmbad Villach to Feistritz an Gail

    August 21, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    24 km, 7 hours, ascent 287m, descent 208m, rating easy/moderate
    Today we hit the Alpe Adria Trail again to complete the 2nd half (after walking the first 400km last year).
    Despite our best efforts to keep the weight down in our backpacks, they still felt surprisingly heavy as we set out. We walked through Carinthia’s first nature park, followed an old Roman Road with deep cart tracks carved into the rocks and a colossal area of rock fall from Mt Dobratsch. Our accommodation tonight is in a lovely hotel with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains..... and our feet are quite sore!Read more

    Ein Schloss am Wörthersee können wir uns nicht erlauben, aber für eine Nacht am Ossiacher See reicht es.

    Bergkapellen, Maria Elend

    December 29, 2016 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 3 °C

    We were very much looking forward to getting to Italy later that day but there was one last thing we wanted to do before leaving Austria. Jenny, a friend of ours, had recommended visiting the chapel at Maria Elend. When we arrived at the village we had a look at the main church, then followed the signs past a small herd of what we think were buffalo, up the hill towards the 'mountain chapel'. The path left the village and became a steep, rocky track that wound its way between tall pines. There was some amazing ice crystals that had formed like in patches along the way. 40 minutes later and slightly out of breath, we reached 784m above sea level and a beautiful little white and terracotta coloured chapel with amazing views of the sprawling valley below. The chapel itself was closed but there were outdoor pews under a wooden roofed shelter and bell tower. The climb in the cold but clean air had been invigorating and we were far enough away from any other civilisation for it to be wonderfully peaceful. It was a great way to spend our last fews hours in the Austria.Read more

    Ossiach to Velden

    June 21, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    17km/542m ascent/603m descent
    This morning we had a few hours of walking up a rocky gorge with a small creek running through it - it was so cool and peaceful even though it was another challenging ascent. We then managed to end up with a naughty/crazy/lovely dog following us for an hour and we tried to get him back home with our 2 German commands ‘no’ and ‘here’ - eventually a cafe owner managed to sort him out for us. When we arrived in Velden on Lake Wörthersee it was absolutely alive with action - it was their annual Euro Sports Car event. We sat at the iconic Schlosshotel Velden and watched Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren F1 and most impressive, the Rolls Royce Wraith with orange leather interior ( and the owner was a hipster ranger)! We ate dinner at a restaurant on the lake promenade and it was like being on the Grand Prix track ......oh and the lake was impressive too.Read more

    Velden to Faaker See/Baumgartner Hohe

    June 22, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    24km/637m ascent/208m descent
    We woke to the sound of solid rain, which had continued all through the night, and we really thought we were facing a long wet day of wearing waterproofs. We started walking in some drizzling rain but it cleared within an hour and we were delighted to walk in fine weather for the rest of the day.
    It was another day of varied landscape including the incredibly blue waters of Lake Faaker See.

    Bad Kleinkirchheim to Arriach

    June 18, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    23km/ 1223m ascent/1365m descent/ 8 hours
    We had a slower start this morning before heading straight up our continuous 1223m ascent (2 1/2 times Mt Lofty). We had a cable car running directly above us which somehow seemed to make it even more of a hard slog! We stopped for lunch at the cable car restaurant which was perched on top of the mountain then tackled the 1366m continuous descent.Read more
