This cycling holiday leads you through some of Austria’s most impressive alpine scenery. Along the way you’ll see picture-perfect alpine villages, serene mountain lakes, glistening glaciers, tumbling waterfalls and cavernous gorges.
This could almost be called the highlights of Austria tour. You start and finish in the charming city of Salzburg, famous with many for being the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart while for others it is inextricably linked with one of the most popular musicals ever made, The Sound of Music.
The pretty village of Lofer
Leaving the city you follow a riverside cycle path into a world of lush meadows, mountain streams and towering peaks. The Kitzstenhorn glacier above the pretty village of Kaprun is an awe inspiring sight as are the thundering waterfalls near Krimml. Stunning views and fresh mountain air are constants throughout the trip and each evening will be spent in cosy, idyllic alpine villages.
The route is mostly along bike paths and quiet roads. Other than a couple of short, steep climbs the whole the route is reasonably level and well within the abilities of most leisure cyclists.
