This bike trip will introduce you to the great Salzkammergut region and take you to no less than 13 lakes, offering you a chance to break up your cycling with swimming, fishing and sailing and hiking. This tour is a loop which allows you to start your adventure anywhere along the route.
The official starting point is Salzburg from where the route will follow southeast to St. Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang, further along to St. Wolfgang and Bad Ischl, our former emperor's Franz Joseph's favorite vacation spot (we suggest to visit his former hunting lodge!)
Further south the trail will lead you into the picturesque town of Hallstatt. For a picture perfect view of the town take the ferry and enjoy one of the country's best photo ops. Stop at the ice caves near Obertraun. The loop continues via the Traunsee, Attersee and Mondsee, all of which invite to some great water activities.
Distance: 192 mile loop
Start and finish: in Salzburg
Features: mostly biking paths and side roads with little traffic, for short distance where highways are being used, railway or bus lines offer an alternative
