Following the "VIA PARADISO" in Carinthia ...

... the magic of hiking around Lake Millstätter See

When the magic of the warm southern light spreads across the gentle mountain tops, forests
and lake, the name "Via Paradiso" says it all. The tranquility of the 55 km hiking trail’s four
stages around Lake Millstätter See will soon have taken hold of you.

"Man does not need much, but stillness and genuineness, these two are essential for a good life."

There are encounters on many levels along the way. Those who follow the "Via Paradiso" embark on a step by step journey to finding themselves. A night in one of the nearby bivouacs designed by architects will send you to the stars and back – or even launch couples into new dimensions.

A picnic in a hammock or on a sunny plateau can be unforgettable too, because the silence on the southern side of the lake is a treat for the senses. Anyone who sees beauty in the detail is privileged here. To them, the treetops smell different when touched by the sun to those lining the shaded forest paths.

Paradise is never anywhere else, but it's always that little bit closer here.

The four-day hike is as varied as its stages – from baroque villas to farmhouse gardens, historical places, castle ruins and morning swims in the up to 27°C lake.

Whether you jump into the water from a rowing boat in a secluded bay or from a shaded forest path, or would rather dive in from Carinthia’s first bathhouse in Millstatt, the magic of the "Via Paradiso" will accompany you with every step and every stroke of the oar. Frequent if even just short breaks at the lovingly created vantage points are sure to press your internal reset button.

Have you ever dined on a purpose-built raft with a waiter serving you the region's excellent game and fish specialities by boat?

Happiness has clearly settled around the lake and comes in many forms. All you have to do is recognise it. The path beneath your feet may even be lined with beautiful semi-precious stones, thanks to the nearby sites where garnets were once mined. The magic of hiking can be found at every turn here.

The unforgettable experiences come to an end when you arrive back at the starting point, but you can quickly use this as an excuse to set off again. Because one thing is for sure: every time you circle the lake you uncover new treasures. And, to put it simply – that’s paradise.
