Slow Food Travel Alpe Adria Carinthia
It is a journey into the valleys, to their people and tastes. A journey to the traditional food producers and their traditional knowledge and old crafts. Baking bread, producing cheese, brewing beer, being there when the Gailtal Valley bacon is made, seeing how beekeeping works.
"Slow Food Travel Carinthia means active participation, knowledge transfer and good, clean and fair farm products."
Cooking courses, guided tours of farms and involvement in food and drink production build a bridge between guests and the region and create understanding for what is worth preserving. It is about the longing for the original. With our substantial range of regional, handmade food in the Lesachtal, Gailtal, Gitschtal valleys and at Lake Weissensee, we are able to fulfil this longing of our guests many times over.
