On the well-developed cycle paths around the lakes, leisure cyclers and families are well treated. The region in the south of Austria with its Mediterranean climate has almost 200 lakes, some of them you will explore. The special location near the border to Slovenia and Italy makes two great day trips possible. The first tour will lead you to the famous Alpe Adria cycle path with the probably most spectacular section on the old railway track from Tarvis to Venzone. The second tour starts in Kranjska Gora, the Kitzbühel of Slovenia, and leads you also along the old railway track to Italy and back to Austria. Starting point of this journey is Villach, the cycling capital of Carinthia. Starting there the day trips allow you to enjoy different lakes like Lake Wörthersee, Faaker See, Pressegger See, Ossiacher See and the provincial capital Klagenfurt and the Alpe Adria area – a wonderful cycle tour with the highlights of the region.

The Seebach leads you out of Villach and soon you will notice the castle ruin of Landskron, dominating the valley below.

In the morning the train takes you to Tarvisio in Italy. The border town is a winter and summer sport center. The bike trip is going along the Ciclovia Alpe Adria bike path, an old railway track. The cycling path leads you through a valley called Val Canale and is very spectacular because of a lot of tunnels and bridges high above the valley. You will pass typical Italian villages and unspoiled nature. You go back to Villach by train.

At the beginning you pass Lake Pressegger See, one of the smaller lakes in Carinthia. Before reaching Villach, you pass a nature reserve, resulting from a rock fall of the giant Dobratsch Mountain.
