Crystal-clear and refreshing
The water is as warm as a brook and pure enough to drink. But it’s the bouquet of colours in Carinthian lakes that will make your eyes sparkle: the azure hues of Lake Faak would make even the Caribbean turn (pale) green with envy, while Wörthersee glitters in emerald hues on July days and cobalt blue in autumn. Meanwhile, Lake Ossiach and Lake Klopein battle it out for the purest royal blue. And in winter? The Weissensee certainly comes to the forefront then, and it’s just a few steps from the Obergasser farm to the mirrored surface of the ice. The perfect place to zip along the tracks for kilometres on nicely sharpened skates.
