From the abandoned villages of Moggia di La to the glittering Pasterze glacier on the Grossglockner – with the "Lust auf Camping" experience highlights the Alps-Adriatic region can be explored right from your campsite. Alone or with the whole family.
When you book your holiday with an establishment from the joint venture “Lust auf Camping”, you can explore the full variety of the Alps-Adriatic region directly from your campsite. Because the nine sites situated on the most beautiful swimming lakes in Carinthia offer their guests not only a fabulous location and perfect infrastructure, but also many exciting experiences. These are simple to book with your campsite and will turn your camping holiday into a journey of discovery through the Alps-Adriatic region of Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
In the valley of abandoned villages
Hidden in the woods of the Carnic Alps lies the small village of Moggessa di La, which can be reached today only by a narrow mule track just as it was in times gone by. But where there was once shared celebration and laughter, there has now long been silence. How did this come about? Find out on a fascinating pack horse tour, on which the history of Moggessa and its neighbouring villages will be brought to life again for a short time. So sit down at the table that is richly laid for guests and let the lost world cast its spell over you. The old monastery and the village's narrow streets have a lot to tell.
The Grossglockner myth
At an imposing 3,798 metres, the Grossglockner is rightly regarded as the emblem of the Republic, and with its unique glacial landscape is one of the most attractive destinations in the country. And luckily you can also experience this beneath the summit, because no special level of fitness is necessary for trekking along the tongue of the glacier. Just an eye for the beauties of nature. Because the view of the "eternal ice" of the glacier crevasses and the majestic ibex is truly breathtaking.
From Duino to Venice
Anyone who has visited the picturesque surroundings of the Italian town of Duino knows what once brought the famous poet Rainer Maria Rilke here: the view of the wide blue sea. And an especially nice way to enjoy precisely this is during a hike along the Alpe-Adria-Trail. And because Venice is only a stone's throw way from Trieste, after an overnight stay at the campsite Mare Pineta we will set off again towards "La Serenissima". There you can enjoy the unique city step by step during a "giro d'ombra".
Canoe trip in a flooded mine shaft
Gliding along on crystal-clear water through the inside of a mountain? It sounds almost magical, yet this dream becomes reality in Mezica, just the other side of the Slovenian border. Because where once lead ore and zinc were mined, nowadays brightly-coloured canoes float through the mine shafts as if they were pulled by an invisible hand. An experience you will remember for a long time. Not just because of the spectacular tunnel system in the Petzen that is over 1000 kilometres long, but also because of the wonderful regional delicacies that are served in true "underground" style.
Nature adventures for kids
If you want to understand the language of nature, you have to take one thing above all: time. And this is precisely what the “Lust auf Camping” outdoor educationalists, rangers and nature park guides do every day. Which is why they enjoy passing their knowledge on to young researchers, on exciting discovery tours through the fauna and flora of the region.
