There is power in walking. The Naturel Hoteldorf SCHÖNLEITN is a good place to start. The familiarity, tranquillity, warmth and security that the village radiates will take you along the wonderful trails in Carinthia, Italy and Slovenia. We don't just hike in Carinthia, but also enjoy the mountains and trails of the neighbouring countries and the country's culinary delights.
The possibilities for hiking are as diverse as the cultural area in the border triangle itself. From very leisurely walks with prams to challenging mountain tours, much is possible. We not only support you in planning your hike, but are also happy to accompany you on the hike itself.
Of course, you can also hike the trails on your own. We are happy to provide you with maps, hiking guides and personal tips from the Naturel team. You can find interesting and useful information online with the Carinthia tour planner or the Villach Region APP.
The hiking regions around the Naturel Hoteldorf SCHÖNLEITN include the Karawanken, the Nockberge, the Julian Alps, the Dobratsch Nature Park, the Carnic Alps and the Triglav National Park. We are also on the path of the Alpe-Adria Trail, which is very popular with long-distance hikers. And the informal atmosphere of the hotel village.
Our hiking expertise coupled with fantastic hikes to peaks and huts makes a holiday in SCHÖNLEITN. Varied landscapes, wonderful panoramas, the dreamlike view of mountains and lakes, culinary as well as cultural diversity in the three-country sound, tours from easy to difficult and short access routes - you will appreciate all this when you pursue your wanderlust in the Carinthian countryside.
- Special highlight: "MY GUIDE", from now on you can book your very own personal hiking guide . You tell us where you want to go and our Ule will accompany you on the wonderful trails of the region. Follow this link and book your desired date.
