Salzburg Lake & Mountains - Road Cycling Holidays in the Salzkammergut District. Salzburg was home to the World Road Bike Championship in 2006, which means the city is filled with first-rate bike paths. However, when leaving the Salzburg area, you'll cross over mountain passes. Some have gradual ascents while others require a strong level of physical fitness. On this tour, the route goes through the medium sized mountains of Salzburg, Upper Austria, Styria and Bavaria.

You'll enjoy an overnight stay in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hallstatt, passing crystal clear lakes and scenic alpine pastures dotted with chalets. Time is available to visit additional sights along the way. Be sure to visit the former emperor city of Bad Ischl with its historic castle and the famous Zauner pastry shop. A highlight of this tour is enjoying the countryside similar to what you see watching the famous movie, "The Sound of Music".

Trip Details: On each day you will have at least two options. An average to above average level of fitness is recommended. If you like, you can shorten the tour by using a train or boat on a lake. This route follows small side roads, bike paths and occasional riding on larger roads. Summer weekends find heavier travel than usual. This route has many hills and some steep ascents that last from 2km to 5km. (HM = Difference of altitude)
