Cycle through Austria’s delightful Salzkammergut region, staying at lovely hotels in some of the region’s most beautiful villages. Starting and finishing in Salzburg, you’ll follow a gentle loop route, staying in selected properties on the shores of Lake Mondsee, Lake Traunsee, Lake Hallstatt and Lake Wolfgangsee. If you want to see the Salzkammergut in style then this is the cycling holiday for you.
After spending a night in the elegant city of Salzburg you’ll pedal out into some of Austria’s most famous and celebrated scenery. The Salzkammergut’s sparkling lakes, chocolate box villages and stunning alpine vistas are the perfect surroundings for a relaxing leisure cycling holiday. Each day will finish at a charming 4 star hotel located within another, beautiful, lakeside village.
The leisurely route takes in all the region’s highlights including; Lake Mondsee – where the wedding scene in the Sound of Music was filmed, Lake Attersee – the Salzkammergut’s largest lake, the sublime village of Traunkirchen on Lake Traunsee, Hallstatt on Lake Hallstatt – the most beautiful village in the Salzkammergut, and of course St Wolfgang on beautiful Lake Wolfgangsee where you will spend two nights.
The cycling is mostly easy – flat along the lake shores – but with the odd hill on the connecting stretches between the lakes. E-bikes are available and worth considering if you are at all concerned about the climbs.
