Carinthia lake round trip east
Past Lake Faakersee, Klopeinersee, Wörthersee, Keutschachersee and Lake Ossiachersee

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 6 days
Distance: 195 - 215 km
Landscape:

This short cycle tour to the most beautiful lakes of Carinthia.is a variant of the original route for leisure cyclers and has no sections with steep slopes or on paved roads. Past blue and turquoise lakes, accompanied by a hilly and mountainous landscape, the route captivates with a varied landscape. The Mediterranean influence in the south of Austria makes cycling a pleasure from April to October.

The stages are shorter, so there is more time to discover the wonderful landscape, but also the cuisine and culture. The cycle tour takes you from Villach, the cycling capital of Carinthia, to lake Faaker See, lake Klopeiner See and via the provincial capital Klagenfurt to lake Wörthersee or the Keutschacher Seental back to Villach and finally around lake Ossiach.
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.

TRAVEL ITINERARY

6 days / 5 nights

Day 1

You will arrive at your hotel in Villach. Parking spaces available close to the hotel.

Day 2

(approx. 35-40 km)

You start in Villach and through the small town the way leads out in the direction of lake Faaker See, the emerald among the Carinthian lakes, not very big, but very warm and turquoise like the Caribbean. You will circumnavigate the lake from south to east and then ride along the Drava/Drau cycle path, which will take you to your destination.

Day 3

(approx. 55-65 km)

Today your bike tour in Carinthia takes you through the scenic valley of the Rosental. During the cycle tour along the Drava/Drau cycle path, you will have the opportunity for some additional sporting or cultural activities: the Feistritz reservoir offers canoe tours while in Ferlach you can visit the gunsmith museum and the Carnica bee museum, giving you an insight into the history of this region. The Tscheppaschlucht gorge is 1.2 km long and impresses with rugged rocks and the 26 m high Tschauko waterfall.

Day 4

(approx. 45 km or alternatively approx. 50 km)

From lake Klopeiner See you cycle to Klagenfurt. The cycle tour is comfortable, the path leads flat directly to the provincial capital of Carinthia. The small town is a manageable size, the medieval centre very beautiful with well-preserved houses and today the heart of the city. A stroll around the Old and New Square, where the landmark Lindwurm stands, is a must. After that, you leave the city along the channel Lendkanal and cycle directly to the shore of the lake Wörthersee. You now have the choice: either you take the cycle path along the northern shore of lake Wörthersee through the famous bathing resorts or you cycle through the untouched lake valley Keutschacher Seental with its four additional lakes. Both variants are charming and converge at the final destination of this stage.

Day 5

(approx. 60 km)

In the morning, you cycle along the Drava/Drau cycle path towards Villach. Before you reach Villach you turn to the lake Ossiacher See and initially follow the creek. Soon you will notice the castle ruin of Landskron, dominating the valley below. Surrounded by the idyllic mountain scenery, you will come across inviting bathing resorts and the romantic Ossiach monastery. The dark green colour of the lake water is really special. From the lake Ossiacher See you cycle a short distance along the Drava/Drau cycle path upriver to your destination Villach.

Day 6

Tour end and departure or possibility of extension.

OUR TIP: combine the tours Carinthia lakes roundtrip west and east to a relaxing 10-days-tour through the Carinthia lake district.
