Austria: With Motorbikes to Via Fertata in Rožca creek
Nada and me extended our short vacation and we decided to take a tour with our motorbikes. We rode across the border to Austria, following the Rož valley (Rosental) to Stari Grad (Altfinkenstein), where we parked our Horsie and Thunder. We took our via ferrata gear and started hiking towards the Rotschitza waterfall, where the B/C via ferrata begins. We followed the Rožca creek and the steel wire ropes for around 130 vertical meters and quickly we were at the end of the via ferrata. Nice, interesting, but short fun was quickly over and we returned back to our bikes. On our way back we made a short detour to Lake Wörth (Vrbsko jezero) and before it started to rain, we were back home.
Half an hour hike to the start of the via ferrata.
We geared up below the Rotschitza waterfall.
The orientation is very easy. Just follow the stream and steel wire rope.
Along the Rožca creek.
From the right bank to the left one.
|Great escape from hot summer days.|
|Via ferrata set above the creek.|
Plenty of water.
Short, but very interesting fun ended in 30 minutes - Garmin Connect.
|From Baumgartnerhof we had a nice view to Baško Lake / Lake Faak.|
There aren't many places near the lake, where you can actually reach the shore.
|Wörthersee is Carinthia's largest lake.|
|Thunder and Horsie near Vrbsko jezero / Wörthersee.|
|Abandoned farm near the border.|
|Found a new friend on the way.|
|Last stop before entering Slovenia.|
