Tours rise up towards the blue skies all over the place in Lesachtal Valley. And even if only the eyes are roaming, the landscape is still a delight and the sun has almost a Mediterranean mildness. Around 300 kilometres of hiking trails criss-cross the region, which is also a starting point for long-distance hikes on the Carnic Peace Trail. Here at the Genusshof, your hike begins almost right on the doorstep.
