Cycling holidays on the Drava

Cycle tours along the Drava
At the Ferlach reservoir on the Drau

Cycle tours along the Drau take you to the southernmost province of Austria's Alpine Republic. Carinthia awaits you with mild temperatures and a density of waters that is second to none. The best thing about Carinthia is the combination of lakes, mountains, incredibly delicious food, and mild temperatures. It never gets boring here, because the mix is just right.

The Drau Cycle Path is rightly one of the most beautiful and attractive cycle routes in Austria. The cycle paths are well signposted, pleasantly flat, and mostly run along the banks of the Drau. Delicacies such as Carinthian cheese noodles and Carinthian "Reindling" delight gourmets. You should not miss out on this. The wine taverns along the cycle paths also serve delicious wine.

Cycling holidays along the Drau are not only a feast for the eyes, but also a treat for body and soul.

The classic cycle tour along the Drau is one of our most popular cycle tours. Pack your swimming trunks and explore sun-drenched Carinthia. Cycle from Lienz via Spittal and Villach past countless lakes against the spectacular backdrop of the Karawanken and Dolomites. It is not without reason that Carinthia is called Austria's lake district. Around 200 lakes are nestled in a unique landscape with high peaks, lush meadows, and tranquil villages.

The Drau cycle tour from Lienz to Villach takes you on a relaxed ride along the course of the Drau River into the Carinthian lake district. Look forward to Faaker See and Ossiacher See, which lie calm and clear in the middle of lush meadows. Visit the excavation site of the Roman city of Aguntum and the impressive Porcia Castle along the way. Villach is a beautiful contrast with its lively and lovingly designed old town.

If you can't get enough of the lakes, you shouldn't miss the cycle tour around the Carinthian lakes. A total of six lakes await you, including the turquoise-blue Faaker See, Ossiacher See, and the famous Wörthersee. Even the composer Johannes Brahms discovered Lake Wörthersee for himself, was inspired by the unique panorama to write his 2nd Symphony, and spent the summer months in Pörtschach. You can also visit the ruins of Glanegg Castle and the beautiful provincial capital of Klagenfurt with its numerous Italian-style palaces and squares.
