Things to Do in Lessach

Lessach is a small village and a summer destination. Not a very touristy one, though. Do not expect well-developed facilities for anything. Lessach is a typical Lungau mountain village and thus a good place for calm and remote hiking holidays; it is also good for exploring some of Austria's traditions. Cycling, mountain biking, llama hiking (no joke) and cross-country skiing are promoted by the tourism board of Lessach.
