Embedded in unique countryside of high peaks and gentle mounts, the province boasts more than 200 swimming lakes up to 28°C warm – ideal for a cycling tour from April to October. Starting point of this bicycle holiday is Villach, the second largest town in Carinthia. Passing by some of the most beautiful lakes the tour leads to the capital city Klagenfurt. Starting from there the journey is going along the Drau Bicycle Path qualified from ADFL as a 5-star-quality- route. Another highlight is the Alpe-Adria-Tour: a shuttle takes you to Slovenia, more precisely to Kranjska Gora. On the bike path, built on the old railway line, you cycle back to Italy and over the Faaker See to Villach.
