Alpe Adria 10-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2
From the Alps to the sea! An inter-cultural composition consisting of Austria‘s impressive Alpine region and Italy‘s southern flair. On your bike you simply experience more: more romantic rivers and roaring waterfalls, more pretty historic town centres and defiant castles, more craggy mountain peaks and of course an increase in scenic, architectural and culinary delights. And last but not least: the Adriatic Sea.
You mainly cycle on well-developed cycle paths and quiet side roads. Only a few sections lead you also along roads with heavier traffic or on dirt paths. Overall the route leads you on slightly hilly terrain, the most challenging section between St. Johann and the Gasteiner-valley can also be completed and bypassed by train.

Arrival in Salzburg
Salzburg – Golling (approx. 35 km)
You leave the festival- and Mozart city of Salzburg and leisurely cycle through the Salzach wetlands in the shade with the river Salzach as your constant companion. You proceed to Hallein, a formerly wealthy Celtic town due to salt mining. The main sight is without question the world-renowned Celtic Museum. Past the Gollinger waterfall you arrive at your Day Finish Golling characterised by its pretty market square and castle dating back to the 13th century.
Golling – St. Johann (approx. 35 km)
From Golling you cycle up to the top of Pass Lueg, enjoy the view onto the marvellously distinct Tennengebirge-mountains. The mountain moves closer and closer to the river Salzach and the roaring of the water becomes more and more noisy. You cycle past the so-called "Salzachöfen", an imposing gorge created by the river Salzach. Once past Werfen with its castle rising high you soon have reached St. Johann. Distinctive – just like twin-peaks – the steeples of the Pongau-cathedral rise.
St. Johann – Mölltal (approx. 55 km + train trip)
Mölltal – Spittal (approx. 40 km)
Today you cycle initially along the river through impressive alpine landscapes. The Drautal-valley starts in the village of Möllbrücke and hence the sunny South of Austria. Leisurely you cycle the final few kilometres to Spittal an der Drau. Already in the Middle Ages this town has been an important transport interchange for pilgrims and which in parts helped create its prosperity.
Spittal - Villach (approx. 35 km)
Nearly effortlessly you proceed in a gentle descent along the river Drau. Half way we recommend you take a break in the little market town of Paternion with its remarkable churches and palaces. Just a bit more pedalling and soon you have reached Villach, with its enchanting old part of town, Southern flair and inviting pubs and restaurants.
Villach –Venzone/Surrounding (approx. 60 km + train trip)
Venzone/ Surrounding – Udine (approx. 60 km )
Udine – Grado (approx. 55 km)
