Swimming, walking & hiking in Hermagor
Hermagor is located in Austria’s southernmost province: Carinthia. Thanks to the proximity to Italy Hermagor benefits from long hours of sunshine and an almost Mediterranean climate. The crystal-clear lake easily reaches water temperatures of up to 28° Celsius in the summer, thus offering outstanding swimming, wind surfing and diving with a faint touch of the Caribbean. However, it is not sandy beaches or palm trees that attract visitors to Hermagor, but a number of lovely routes and trails for walking and hiking, allowing outdoor enthusiasts to explore the beauty of Carinthia: along the lakeshore and all through the charming side valleys of the Gail Valley. Do not miss out on a tour of the Garnitzenklamm gorge: A footpath takes you across bridges, past thundering waterfalls and along a raging torrent.
Cycling is also a fantastic way of exploring the surroundings of Hermagor. Choose from some 50 kilometers of routes for cyclists of all ages and ambitions.
