Cycling tour Austria: Ten Lakes Tour Salzkammergut

8 Days

Your trip

What could be more beautiful than cycling along the lakeside paths under mountains?

Let your soul dangle in the magnificent natural landscape of the 10-Lakes-Lands.

A bike tour through the Salzkammergut and the Trumer-Seen-Land is a joy to the soul. Just a few kilometers after Salzburg you will be spoiled with a unique natural scenery.

The gentle hilly landscape of the Alpine foothills has its own charm. You cycle through meadows and moorlands, to the silent night place Oberndorf as well as to the old imperial town Bad Ischl. The route will take you through a world of clichés that have become reality. The Ten Lakes Tour is an active recreation with nature experience!

Accommodation

You can choose between two hotel categories when booking:

> Category A “Comfort” : 3*** and 4**** hotels

> Category B “Standard” : 3*** hotels, inns and guesthouses

In both categories, a rich cyclist’s breakfast is included daily.
