Green Islands in a Sea of Stone
Grüne Inseln im steinernen Meer
Spared by the ice-age, overlooked by an expanding civilisation for hundreds of years, saved at the last minute from a total sell out to tourism - that is the still little known Carinthian «Nockberge» region. Austria's oldest landscape is a green island surrounded by young, dramatic peaks. The windswept heights have been cattle pastures from time immemorial, and over the centuries a wonderful harmony has develop ed between wildlife and cattle. Wild nature and the ancient culture of mountain farming distinguish the character of the Nockberge Nationalpark.
