This flexible tour makes for the perfect family cycling holiday, and is a great introduction to the fascinating country of Austria. Combining stunning mountain and lakeside scenery with a host of exciting activities, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The cycling is at a leisurely pace, with mostly flat or downhill routes on dedicated, traffic free cycling paths and little used side roads.

Enjoy the unrivalled vistas of Austria’s famous lake district, the ‘Salzkammergut’, where crystal-clear lakes combine with towering mountains. The trip takes you through elegant spa towns and UNESCO world heritage sights, via picturesque valleys and ski resorts.

Our itinerary allows plenty of time for other activities – mountain walks, outdoor swimming, or excursions by boat, cable car or mountain train. Local Summer concession cards are also included, which give you free access or reduced rates at a large range of attractions, from rafting to tobogganing.

With beautiful hotels to stay in, many with a spa for the adults, low daily mileage and plenty of swimming and activity stops, this tour perfectly encapsulates the best of what the Austrian lakes and mountains have to offer for all age groups. 

New for 2017! Scoot instead of cycle...

We have partnered up with the Manchester based adult scooter company 'Swifty Scooters' to offer the Austrian Lakes and Mountains holiday as the UK's first scooter holiday option.

You can complete the tour on a high quality Swifty Scooter rather than on the bike. We think this is ideal if your children prefer to scoot rather than cycle! 

You can find out more by watching the YouTube video here.
