The turquoise and crystal-clear lake Faak offers you a variety of water sports opportunities. We exclusively offer our hotel guests two hard-shell 1-seater kayaks and a stand-up paddle board (SUP) for a small rental fee. You can either let yourself drift or we recommend the following beautiful tour, for which you should plan around 2.5 hours (without a longer break): A narrow waterway winds through the reeds of Lake Faak and surprises every visitor. The most beautiful place in Lake Faak can only be reached by kayak or SUP. The outflow of the idyllic lake Faak with Caribbean flair leads on winding paths through a reed belt. Fish, aquatic plants and birds are within reach here – there is no better escape from everyday life. Complete peace and solitude reigns on the winding 1km long canal. It is not without reason that the reed meander is also called the “Everglades of Carinthia”. At the end of the reed meander you can take a break and swim in a mint-colored natural pool. Cool drinks and sometimes Pizza are available from there at Camping Poglitsch within walking distance. Even a good restaurant called “Kärntner Hof” is reachable within 4 minutes walking distance (you can leave the kayaks at the beach). Check their opening hours here.
