In addition to the sporting highlights and active family holidays, guests in Carinthia – the land of water – can also spend a fantastic feel-good holiday that includes wellness. With more than 1,200 stretches of water and roughly 200 lakes, Carinthia is not only rich in "water”, the Carinthian Nockberge Mountains especially hides many other natural resources, such as the Speick plant – a valerian plant with a fragrant scent that accompanies Alpine hiker’s, especially in the late summer. Its health-promoting properties are of particular importance in many products and body applications, e.g. in refreshing foot baths and soothing body massages.
Stone pine, a tree that grows with the larches and pines up to 2,500 m above sea level, is said to slow the heart rate and promote restful sleep, for example. Stone pine oil, on the other hand, has a purifying anti-inflammatory effect and promotes the circulation.
