Lake biking in Carinthia
Happy bikers: MTB beginners, hobby sportsmen and women, summit conquerors as well as freeriders turn the southern side of the Alps into their playground in April already. They enjoy the unique combination of biking and swimming fun, beautiful lake panoramas and the regional Alpine-Adriatic cuisine. Carinthia’s mountain and lake world convinces with its sunny Mediterranean climate, many swimming lakes and a variety of mountain bike tours: from hut to hut leads the tour on the Millstätter Alm for example. The three-country tour, starting at Lake Faak and Lake Ossiach, promises pure delight. Ideal for family bikers is Lake Wörthersee and the rare combination of bike & boat at Lake Weissensee. The meeting point of the freerider and downhiller scene is Carinthia’s first bike park on the Petzen near Lake Klopein.
