A XL road bike season, mild climate, low-traffic roads, plenty of natural lakes and many pass roads: This and much more offers the road bike region Lake Klopein – South Carinthia.
The federal state of Carinthia is known for its southern flair. And this is definitely true in the region Lake Klopein – South Carinthia. Mild temperatures from March until October guarantee a long road bike season. Countless glistening natural lakes radiate beach feeling and the welcoming and relaxed nature of the locals provides the feel-good factor.
If you prefer a more relaxed road bike holiday, then take a tour along the region’s many different lakes. You can leisurely explore the surrounding area with its blooming fields and meadows on excellent asphalted side roads. On a tour to Hochosterwitz Castle, you will also learn interesting facts about the country’s history.
But if you rather clock up altitude metres and love crisps ascents, then is Lake Klopein the right destination for you. Tours across the Soboth or the Seeberg Saddle and the Loibl Pass guarantee burning thighs. Additional benefit of these routes: You also get to know the neighbouring country of Slovenia. Another MUST DO of the region is a tour to the mountain village of Diex. With 2,200 hours of sunshine a year, this is Austria’s sunniest place, offering wonderful views to the green hilly Jauntal Valley in addition.
- Long road bike season
- Cross-border experience between Austria & Slovenia
