A delightful, leisurely route through Austria’s famous lake district, the ‘Salzkammergut’, where crystal-clear lakes combine with towering mountains to create unrivalled vistas. This region was a favourite of the Austrian monarchs. Elegant Bad Ischl, one of their favoured haunts, is your base for two nights.

Lakeside cycle paths take you from charming St.Gilgen to Bad Ischl, and then to Lake Hallstatt, arguably the most beautiful of all the Austrian Lakes. Your luxury hotel in Bad Aussee has its own spa and fitness centre and a beautiful new swimming pool. Optional rides from Bad Aussee allow you to see the wonderful lakes of Altausee and Grundlsee nearby.

The longer 9 night itinerary takes you beyond Bad Aussee and down the scenic Enns Valley, with the majestic Dachstein mountain range rising to the north. The charming ski resort of Schladming is your final destination. You then return to Salzburg by train (included).

Our itinerary allows plenty of time for other activities – mountain walks, outdoor swimming, or excursions by boat, cable car or mountain train. We include the local concession cards which give you free access or reduced rates at a large range of attractions.
