Tips

  • Bernd

    The gorge is one of the most beautiful in Austria. The trails are interesting but challenging. Although everything is well secured, surefootedness and a bit of exercise in mountain hiking are required. It was nice that the gorge was not crowded at all.

    In the Carinthian Gail Valley, 2.5 kilometers south of Hermagor, near Möderndorf, the Garnitzenbach has dug a 4-kilometer-long gorge in the rocks of the Carnic Alps - the Garnitzenklamm. The Garnitzenklamm owes its origin on the one hand to a geological fault zone in the mountains, which offered the outflowing water less resistance than the surrounding rock formations, on the other hand, after the last ice age melting glaciers, the huge streams, mixed with much rock material sent to the valley. The Garnitzenklamm is about 10,000 years old.

    Even with dogs on a leash, the first three sections are good

    Please do not take dogs with you! This year 2 have already crashed and had to be recovered from the mountain rescue. It is slippery, especially after the rain. Good footwear required. Not recommended for children under 5.

    My most impressive holiday experience so far: crystal clear water, round and rugged rocks, flat spots on the water again and again, even small "pools" that invite you to swim. I dared. Also great for children to splash around. Very good backups in tighter places.

    It says in the description that you can bring dogs on a leash ... I personally didn't do it ... some places are a bit difficult to walk with a dog ...
    Otherwise always worth a visit! The gorge is easy to manage even if you are afraid of heights! 😅😜

    Behind every corner there is something new to discover and in some places you get to the water 💦 always good for a cool down

    You have to go through this gorge. You can borrow climbing equipment or go with your own climbing equipment. There is something for every level of difficulty. If you don't want to climb, you can walk the gorge like this.
