Welcome to the Wolayersee-Hütte

General Information

In the heart of the Carnic Alps, enclosed by imposing peaks and named after the adjoining lake, you will find the Wolayersee Hut (1.960 m). This hut is not only an important base along the KHW, but also a very popular destination for day tours from the valley. Otherwise known as ‘The Pearl of the Carnic Alps’ the lake Wolayersee is right at the front door.

Scenically, geologically and from a climbers point of view, this area is possibly one of the most beautiful and interesting spots in the Alps.

KHW 403

Climbers start from the Wolayersee hut via the 26-er to the ‘Hohe Warte’ (2.780 m), the highest peak in the Carnic Alps. Non-climbers wanting to conquer a peak before descending to the ‘Untere Valentinalm’ can hike on top of ‘Rauchkofel’ (2.138 m) for spectacular views.

Next Stage

Hike from Wolayersee via the Valentintörl to the Untere Valentinalm (approx. 6 km). At a good pace this stage is doable in 2.5 hrs.
