Want more from a holiday? The Gailtal Valley isn’t a hidden gem for no good reason – there are still many hidden places to relax and unwind. You can experience so much in the immediate vicinity, both perfect for families, but also for couples and those looking for a bit of peace and quiet. Our absolute favourite – in any season – is Lake Weissensee. If you like, you can always walk along the shore from east to west. Then return by boat. This is a pure way of experiencing nature – occasionally, you might feel like you’re in somewhere like Canada – no one and no buildings for miles, just forest, mountains and crystal clear water.
