The so called Lienz Dolomites get their name for the likeness of their rock and mainly for their closeness to the more famous Dolomites. They cover an area 40 km long in Eastern Tyrol, from the Kartitscher Sattel Forcella to the Gailberg. The whole mountain range is located south of Lienz, the capital of Eastern Tyrol. This wide area is a special place for ski mountaineers, offering a wide range of different itineraries, from steep and difficult slopes to nice and easy runs. These beautiful excursions are surrounded by nature in sight of a great rocky amphitheater whose peaks reach 2700 meters.
This excursion is ideal for those who want to spend a relaxing day without dangers or technical sections. Just be aware of the elevation gain, which amounts to about 1000 meters.
