Dolomites - Trieste

Nearly like in the emperor times.

Starting in the North-East Dolomites the first part of the tour leads along river Drau through the Drau-Valley and then through Gailtal Valley on comfortable cycle paths through Austria. After an excursion to Italian border-city Tarvisio we continue to cycle to Slovenia. Picturesque Lake Bleder See nestles on the foot of Julian Alps. A transfer brings you to the south side of the Alps and you return into well-known wine-grower area Collio. Not only is the old capital of Langobards, Cividale, well worth a visit but also the city Görz. The final highlight of the tour follows when you reach the Adria. The last day you cycle along the sea to ancient Habsburg port Trieste.

Itinerary

Individual arrival to your starting hotel in the “Hochpustertal”.

From the water-shed of the rivers Drau and Rienz on Toblach saddle you cycle downhill from South Tyrol along river Drau to Lienz in East Tyrol. Impressive summits of the Dolomites seam the way.

After a short transfer on Gailberg Pass (350 m/7 km) a downhill section brings you to Kötschach Mauthen. Follow the Gailtal Valley cycle path at the foot of the Carnic Ridge, pass Hermagor and take a bath in Pressegger Lake. Overnight stay is in Feistritz an der Gail.

You cycle to the Italian boarder and continue on the cycle path. Soon you leave Italy and reach Slovenia. Past the well-known skiing area Kranjska Gora the cycle path winds through marvellous, mainly unspoilt nature. Today you have also the possibility to short the stage at 10 km.  Spend the evening on the idyllic lake of Bled.

After a transfer across the pass you reach Soca valley, well known for the exiting canoeing and adventure sports. In Kobarid you get a historic review of the dreadful battles during World War I. After that all lovers of fine food and wine can enjoy themselves. Historic city Cividale del Friuli invites to stroll around. Not only the Devil’s Bridge is well worth a visit, a number of cultures as e.g. Goths, Langobards and Francs left their traces.

On your way through Collio Goriziano, centre of the Friulian wine-growing area, many wine-cellars invite to stop and taste the first rate wines. After some small hills we come to Gradisca d'Isonzo. We recommend ambitious cyclists doing a longer tour via Udine. The most important city in the historic region of Friuli-Julitsch Venetian is a visit worth it!

Der Karst begleitet uns auf dem Weg zum Adriatischen Meer und die Schlösser Duino und Miramare laden zu einem Besuch ein, bevor wir in die ehemalige Habsburgerstadt Triest einfahren.

Individual departure or the possibility for additional nights in Trieste.

Tour character

The cycle tour to Trieste is easy, even with the rather longer first two days. At the first day you cycle about 65 km with a height difference of approx. 600 m, always slightly downhill along river Drau. At the second day the distance can be shortened by train. This cycle path is very convenient to children who are 14 years or older.

Super Radreise
Die komplette Reise war ein Highlight. Die Tagesetappen sind gut ausgearbeitet. Wir hatten tolles Wetter, was natürlich auch die Tour noch schöner erscheinen ließ. Die schönste und anstrengendste Etappe war von Feistritz nach Bled, bei der weniger Trainierte lieber mit E-Bike unterwegs sein sollten. Die Service-Hotline funktioniert hervorragend. Insgesamt eine ganz tolle Radreise.

Sehr gut
Die Strecke war landschaftlich überragend, die Organisation der Reise hervorragend und die Hotels gut ausgewählt, teilweise als 4-Sterne Hotels die Erwartungen deutlich übertreffend. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis gut.
