Wellness hiking

Wellness hiking in Carinthia’s Nock Mountains

In the Carinthian holiday region the spikenard (Valeriana Celthica ssp. Norica), an almost forgotten medical plant, which only grows in the Nock Mountains National Park, is these days celebrating a revival.

Step by step you can hike on botanical paths to your very own summit adventures in the Nock Mountains National Park in Austria. The nearly forgotten culture of spikenard has been translated into a new and exciting form of wellness hiking.

The spikenard is a protected plant nowadays and therefore cannot be picked. On selected hiking routes surrounding Bad Kleinkirchheim you will smell the wonderful scent of the spikenard and be able to enjoy foot baths with spikenard oil at romantic alpine chalets. An alpine wellness experience for all the senses.

For your very own wellness-hiking memories send a no-obligation request to the Hotel Pulverer – The hotel team will send an individual wellness-hiking-holiday package via email in return
