Salzburg 9-days Ten Lakes Cycling Tours

What is lovelier than being out and about cycling along the banks of lakes and just letting your spirit soar in a marvellous natural landscape? The cycle tour through the Salzkammergut and the Trumer Seen lake area is wonderfully suited for this. Only a few kilometres beyond Salzburg you will be greeted by the luxury of a unique natural panorama. The gentle hilly landscape of Salzburg’s alpine foothills has a charm all of its own. You will cycle through meadows and moorlands to Oberndorf – the place associated with the Christmas carol "Silent Night" and also to the old imperial town of Bad Ischl. In a way you will be travelling through a whole world of clichés transformed into realities. The ten lakes round tour is active recreation experiencing nature and enjoying many attractions such as the Schafberg mountain and the Orth castle.

Tour character: Level 3

On the banks of the lakes and at the river Salzach the routes are completely flat. In between the terrain is mainly hilly. Depending on the option chosen, approximately one third of the route is on cycle paths and almost all the rest is through fields and on forest paths, farm roads and quiet side roads. There are only a few short sections on roads with more traffic.
