Departure, bike tour to the Green Lake, approx. 25 km

Before heading home, it is worth taking a bike trip to the idyllic Green Lake. When cycling along the idyllic Lamingtal cycle path, one rule of thumb applies: the further you cycle into the valley, the more beautiful it gets. After all, the Tragöß valley head is the undisputed scenic jewel on the south side of the Hochschwab.
