Southern Styria - based in one hotel
Cycling in the Country of Vines and Volcanoes.
Arrival in Mureck
Welcome drink, welcome briefing/information meeting and bike fitting.
You will follow the river Mur eastwards to Bad Radkersburg. The thermal bath's wonderfully warm water is awaiting you (admission included!). On your way back to Mureck, you will ride your bike through the floodplains along the Mur cycle path.
The day will start with a transfer to the South Styrian Wine Road where you partake in some wine tasting at one of the excellent wineries (included in the tour price!). Then you will cycle along the Wine Road via Gamlitz and Ehrenhausen back to your hotel.
Cycling without borders! The river Mur forms a natural border with Slovenia but today you will go into Slovenia. When there, you will cycle on beautiful paths and get great views throughout the day.
On the fifth day, you will take the train to Graz. The 2003 European Cultural Capital invites you for a visit. Afterwards, you will cycle along the wonderful Mur cycle path via Seggau and then back to Mureck.
The black gold - pumpkin seed oil - is what has made Styria famous. Nowhere else will you find higher quality oil than here. The route will lead you through the area where the pumpkins are grown and of course, to a mill where you will be able to watch the production process (admission included!).
Departure or extension
You will cycle on wonderful bike baths and minor roads. Only for a few short sections will you need to ride your bike on major roads. In the vineyards, you will find yourself on hilly terrain.
