Itinerary

Individual arrival to your start hotel in Villach.

Follow the river Seebach out of Villach and shortly afterwards, the ruin of Landskron castle will appear reigning regally over the countryside. Soon you arrive at Lake Ossiacher See which lies idyllically amid the mountains. You will pass numerous seaside resorts and the old Ossiach Collegiate Church. The clear, deep green water invites you to stop and have a swim before returning to Villach.

For the first few kilometres, the river Drau is pointing the way, passing by a countryside that has kept its naturalness even to the present. At the famous lake Wörthersee, there are plenty offers for the entire family; public bathing beaches, boat rentals and boat trips on the lake. The route will take you through lively villages to Klagenfurt. By train you travel back to Villach.

In the morning the train takes you to Tarvisio in Italy. The border town is a winter and summer sport centre. The bike trip is going along the Ciclovia Alpe Adria bike path, built on the old railway line. The way leads down through the Val Canale and is very spectacular because you pass some tunnels and bridges high above the valley. You will pass typical Italian villages and unspoilt nature. You go back by train.

After a short transfer in the morning to Kransjka Gora (Slovenia) you cycle on the well laid out path along an old railway track to Italy in the Italian border towe Tarviso, known for its market and the typical Italian flair.

By train you go to Hermagor. Today you follow the Gailtal bike path. The wide valley has kept its naturalness and the course is going along the river Gail. At the beginning you pass lake Pressegger See, it`s one of the smaller lakes in Carinthia and will invite all epicures to a relaxing break. Before reaching Villach, you pass a nature conservation area, resulting from a rockfall of the giant Dobratsch mountain.

Radfreuden in Kärnten
Die radtouren waren abwechslungsreich, in der Ferienzeit nicht immer ein Genuss, da Rad-und Fussweg um die Seen recht voll waren. Besonders schön waren die Touren im Gebirge entlang der alten Eisenbahnstrecken, wenn auch das letzte Stück nach Venzone etwas ungenau war. Besonders möchte ich die Idee mit den Bonus für das Abendessen hervorheben. Gefallen hat uns, dass wir verschiedene Gaststätten aufsuchen konnten. Das sollten Sie unbedingt beibehalten.

Wunderschönes Kärnten
Villach als Ausgangspunkt optimal. Spaß machte der Ausflug nach Italien an der alten Bahntrasse. Stetig bergab durch das Kanaltal und den Tagliamento immer blauschimmernd neben sich. Wir machten halt an einem Kaffee das früher eine Haltestelle war. Nach einem Cafe Doppio ging es weiter durch die Tunnels und Brücken. Richtig spektakulär. Wörthersee und Ossiacher See wie die Karibik Kärntens. Wunderbar auch vom Presseggersee an der Drau einem 5 Sterne Radweg zurück nach Villach. Nach der Sternfahrt entschieden wir uns noch wegen der Nähe zu einem Kurzurlaub in Italien.

Schöne Unterkunft zentrumsnah
Sehr schöne Unterkunft im Cityhotel, günstig am Bahnhof gelegen. Sehr ruhig, sehr freundliches Personal. Halbpension war zuerst im Brauhaus, dann im Goldenen Lamm in Villach. Das Hotel machte dankenswerteweise den Wechsel möglich. Wir wechselten das Gasthaus, weil das Essen im Brauhaus zu deftig war. Die Strecken waren gut zu fahren. Ein Höhepunkt war die Kanaltaltour nach Venzone. Der Transfer klappte bestens.
