DESCRIPTION:

Seven dreamlike lakes in seven cycling days! Our lake biking tour along the large Carinthian lake loop connects the most beautiful Carinthian lakes and is a unique experience for leisure cyclists. The largest ascent to the natural jewel Weissensee can be easily covered by bus. After that, after a boat trip, it goes continuously downwards. In between, the crystal-clear water of the well-tempered, beautiful lakes lures you to stop for a swim. The route is 90% along the Carinthian lakes, such as the Millstätter See, the Ossiacher See or the Wörthersee as well as along the Drau cycle path on very well developed and marked cycle paths. Short connecting routes run on country roads. In order to have enough time for the numerous highlights and sights, we recommend using an e-bike.

Spittal - Weissensee - Millstätter See, approx. 55 km

Your tour begins with a bus ride to the eastern shore of the beautiful, fjord-like Weissensee. We organize this service because the ascent to the 930 m high Weissensee is a bit difficult. Cross the lake with the liner "Alpenperle" and then switch to the bikes. From the west bank you cycle downhill to the Drau Cycle Path and via Spittal/Drau to the popular Millstätter See bathing lake.

Coming from Lake Millstatt you drive to Radenthein, where a visit to the Granatium, the adventure world of garnet gemstones, is recommended. Then you pass the two small bathing lakes Feldsee and Afritzer See, which are ideal for a leisurely rest and a swim stop. On the way to Ossiacher See you can make a short detour to the Elli Riehl Doll Museum in Treffen.
