The Karnische Höhenweg is about 150 km long from Sillian to Arnoldstein and can be divided into 8-11 daily stages, a descent into the valley is (almost) possible at any time. Overnight stays in managed huts are sufficiently available.

The somewhat longer section east of the Plöckenpass offers a gentle mountain landscape with extensive alpine meadows and easy hiking mountains. West of the Plöckenpass, the more interesting alpine section stretches along the highest peaks of the Carnic Ridge. The alpine long-distance hiking trail leads through a scenically extremely beautiful and varied area.

Author’s recommendation

In addition to the conventional route, summit ascents can also be included. Especially recommended: Small / High shoot and Zollnersee round trip.
