Family holiday - Faaker See - Water sports
... nothing like pure crystal clear water - the Faaker See invites you to water sports
Lake Faak is Carinthia’s fifth-largest lake and is situated south of Villach. Its turquoise-blue waters make it one of Austria’s most popular swimming lakes. Lake Faak is surrounded by gentle hills and forests. Its deepest point is around 30 m and, thanks to the sandy bed, its waters are crystal-clear, clean and of drinking water quality.
A swimming facility, vast and lined by shade-providing trees, at probably the most beautiful beach of Lake Faak is available free of charge for guests of the Adventure Hotel Pirker.
The highest accolade: Lake Faak has been named Austria’s cleanest swimming lake!
The lake’s warm water temperatures (up to 27°C) allow triathletes to swim simply without wetsuits in June already. It takes around 600 m to the island in the middle of the lake. But not only sportsmen and women find the ideal conditions at our swimming beach, families also fully enjoy the aquatic fun:
shallow, crystal-clear water at the lake’s shore
flat, inclining sand-pebble beach - ideal for children and toddlers – safe, shallow shore, water of drinking water quality.
