Highlights and places of interest along the route:


The Carinthia Lakes Roundtrip is a bicycle tour to the most beautiful lakes of Carinthia. Past blue and turquoise lakes, accompanied by a hilly and mountainous landscape, the route fascinates with a varied landscape. The Mediterranean influence in the south of Austria makes cycling a pleasure from April to October. The leisure tour is a variant of the original route for leisure cyclers and has no sections with steep slopes or on paved roads. The stages are shorter, so there is more time to discover the magnificent landscape, but also the cuisine and culture. The cycle tour takes you from Villach, the cycling capital of Carinthia, to lake Millstätter See, lake Weißensee, lake Pressegger See, lake Faaker See and via the valley Keutschacher Seental with 4 lakes to the provincial capital of Klagenfurt. From there the journey leads over the lake Wörthersee to the Drava/Drau cycle path back to Villach and finally around the lake Ossiacher See.

Characteristics of the route:

This tour leads mostly on well laid out bicycle routes, often directly along the lakesides. The route is mainly flat, in a few stages slightly hilly.
Tour also suitable for families with children aged 12 and over.
