What could be better than being out and about, cycling along the banks of beautiful lakes, and letting your spirit soar, as you take in a marvellous natural landscape? If this sounds like your kind of break, then this cycling tour, through the Salzkammergut is absolutely perfect! Only a few kilometres beyond Salzburg, you will be greeted by the luxury of a unique natural panorama. On a wonderful and varied tour, you will cycle through meadows and also to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl.
In a way, you will be travelling a whole world of clichés made reality. This tour is active recreation, experiencing nature and enjoying spectacular attractions, such as the mountain Schafberg and the Hallstätter See region. On the banks of the lakes and at the river Salzach, the routes are completely flat. In between, the terrain is mainly hilly. Depending on the option chosen, approximately one third of the route is on cycle paths and almost all the rest is through fields and on forest paths, farm roads, and quiet side roads. There are only a few short sections of minor roads with traffic.
