The mountain group of the Carnic Alps is located between the Julian Alps to the east and the Dolomites to the west. They develop mainly in the Friuli area and partially in Veneto and Carinthia and are named after the Carnia. The group is delimited by the Piave to the west, the Tagliamento to the east and from the Veneto-Friuli plain to the south.
There are many aided routes that climb the main peaks of the Alps and Carnic Prealps as well as in Friulian Dolomites.

Many routes run on peaks to the Italian-Austrian border as well as in many itineraries there are traces of the fighting of the WWI.
