At the Faaker Lake holiday feeling is guaranteed! Turquoise coloured water that one would usually expect in the Caribbean rather than in the south of Austria. Excellent water quality, lots of places serving refreshments around the lake and numerous family hotels make your family holidays a perfect stay! Not only the lake has a lot to offer. In the vicinity one can easily find various recreational facilities and opportunities to spend the day sportively.
Things to do
The landscape around the lake attracts many people through a generous and wide network consisting of both cycling trails and hiking paths, which one can jog or have a nordic walking tour on. Those wanting to fly at higher games, the high rope course at Tabor and the crag at the Kanzianiberg will be worth your money. Free climbing is possible in the mountains as well as around the Faaker Lake. Water sports as surfing and sailing can be done as well as fishing and of course swimming. A boat hire offering rowing boats, pedal boats and motor boats rounds it off. In the countryside you'll find castle ruins of Finkenstein, which one shouldn't miss visiting during the stay at Faaker See. Both the annual Harley Davidson convention as well as the international Cabrio Meeting belong to the event highlights of the region.
