Highlights and places of interest along the route:


The Carinthia Lakes roundtrip is a 355 km long cycle 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 original tour is a cycle tour for sporty, more ambitious and experienced cyclists, cyclists with a couple of slopes to overcome and partially leading several kilometers along paved roads with some traffic. 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 Keutschacher Seental with 4 lakes to the provincial capital of Klagenfurt and to Lake Klopeiner See.

Characteristics of the route:

This tour leads mostly on well laid out bicycle routes, often directly along the lakesides. In some sections the route leads along federal roads without a cycle path. In addition, there is a long slope on the route to Weißensee to overcome (transfer optional). The rest of the route is mainly flat, sometimes slightly hilly. The route is ideal for E-bikes.
