Roadbike holidays in Lake Klopein, Lake Faak and Lake Ossiach

Bike season

March - October

The pleasant, almost Mediterranean climate allows for a long racing bike season in Southern Carinthia, Austria’s federal state with the most hours of sunshine.

Racing cycle holidays in Carinthia
Wurzen Pass, Villach Alpine Road, Seeberg Saddle and Diex. Lake Klopein, Lake Ossiach, Lake Faak and Lake Turner. It just takes a few names to realise that Southern Carinthia is a real dream region. Here you don’t have to choose between mountains or lakes. You enjoy both in the mild climate here: mountain air and swimming fun, bike saddle and surfboard. Austria’s top racing cycle stars also practise in this region!

Race cycling in Southern Carinthia
Starting at Lake Faak, crossing into Italy and Slovenia and returning back to the starting point, the “Three-Country Tour“ is a great opportunity to discover the region. ”Through the Rosental Valley“ provides an amazing insight into the diversity of Carinthia’s south. Starting at Lake Klopein, exceeding limits is the theme of the “Karavankas Tour“. The theme does not only refer to the physical challenge but to the truly delightful landscape too!

Road bike - Family & Swimming
Showing you the hot spots in the tri-border region, experienced bike guides accompany the tours in Carinthia’s Lake District on request. But it doesn’t matter which route you choose, a dive into cool waters is the highlight of every tour. The waters of the swimming lakes are of drinking water quality, are some of the warmest in Europe and invite to relax after accomplishing a major challenge. Ideal for the next cycling holidays with the entire family!

“Thanks to the mild temperatures, I discover the diversity of routes around Lake Faak, Lake Klopein and in the Rosental Valley during April already. From mountain tours with steep ascents to easy tours around the lake, here I find the ideal training conditions and can even visit Austria, Italy and Slovenia in one day.“

The Carinthian region is also very popular with cycling pros. Since 1998, thousands of participants come to Carinthia year after year to take on a challenge and start at the Ironman Klagenfurt. By the way, the potential of this region was already recognised back in 1986 when the Cycling World Championship was staged in the area around Villach. These days, the World Championship route can still be used for rides!!
