About the tour: Carinthia & Three Countries

The unspoilt region of Carinthia is a land of lakes, mountains and pretty villages, which dot the valleys. The southernmost province of Austria, Carinthia offers a mild Mediterranean climate and almost fairytale landscape of green and blue lakes; there are around 1700 of them, and thickly wooded slopes. Ideally situated for visiting its neighbours, Slovenia and Italy, our resort offers a wealth of exciting excursions. Experience breathtaking natural backdrops, blooming mountain meadows, crystal clear lakes, picturesque towns and taste your way through Carinthia's unique cuisine!
