Whether you arrive by mountain bike, racing bike or e-bike for your cycling holiday at the Gasthof Hochalmspitze or on a tour with like-minded cyclists – all cyclists will get their money’s worth in the Maltatal.

Plan a beginner’s trip, the next family ride or a challenging day trip. Swing on the model you brought with you or rent (with or through us) a suitable bicycle. And experience the colorful world of the Maltatal while driving.

Tip: The cycling and leisure path R9B, which runs from Gmünd along Malta to the Maltese toll plaza, mainly runs along the Malta River. This makes it one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Carinthia.

Climbing adventures for the whole family

Those who spend their holidays in the Maltatal and especially at Gasthof Hochalmspitze appreciate the variety that can be found in the area. And there is no lack of variety in terms of climbing. From trial climbing for the first experiences on a wall to via ferrata for advanced climbers – the climbing valley Malta leaves nothing to chance.

With four climbing gardens, some rocks with climbing routes from the fifth to the tenth difficulty and the famous climbing garden “Kreuzwand” with routes up to 60 meters high, you will certainly experience an unforgettable climbing holiday here.

Tip: A special climbing adventure awaits you directly at the highest waterfall in Carinthia. The Fallbach sports climb offers deep vistas that you will not soon forget..


Get a little closer to the unique natural world of the so-called “Valley of the Falling Waters”. This works best with canyoning. On request with the whole family and for both beginners and advanced.

You will go through the impressive water world under the guidance of trained guides. Along waterfalls and pools and through wild and romantic gorges. A spectacle that not only provides a lot of fun, but also creates a certain tension.


Action and nature on the 3D archery course

Do you need a certain amount of action for a holiday with your family? Then you are not wrong at Gasthof Hochalmspitze! We can of course help you book the most adventurous action. This is of course also provided in the Malta Valley. As always it is out in the fresh air. And in an adventurous archery course. Where big and small Robbin-Hoods can let off steam while “hunting” 3D animals until their adrenaline needs are again met.

Nordic Walking and Running

The main thing is active. It’s no secret: everything in the Maltatal is about being active. How best to implement this is up to you. As you can see, the choices are endless.

Those who like to train between running or Nordic walking will find what they are looking for on the varied routes in the Malta Valley. Bring good shoes and – if you wish – a pair of poles. Nothing stands in the way of a sporty excursion in the nature of the Malta Valley.
