On these theme trails you can learn a lot! Hiking passionates can climb one of the many peaks in the Dolomiten of Lienz. And not to forget: Gaimberg and its surroundings are perfekt for paragliding and hand gliding.
In winter the ski region of Zettersfeld offers a lot of fun, particularly for families. In the valley there are many cross-country ski runs, like the “Amlacherrunde“ or the night-illuminated “Lavantrunde“.
