Cycling around the Salzkammargut

7 Days Moderate

Many people associate Austria with the film ‘Sound of Music’. On this tour you’ll visit the wedding church in Mondsee and behold the wonderful panoramic views over the lakes and mountains which you saw in that classic movie as you climb and cruise the moderate slopes around charming Salzburg.
East of Salzburg, you find a breathtaking region dotted with many lakes (76 in total) called the Salzkammergut. The landscape includes fjord-like steep rocks and cliffs bordering lush, green mountains and pristine green-blue mountain lakes. This stunning panorama of natural beauty has drawn European tourists for centuries and was the favored summer resort of the Habsburg monarchy. Note that the Hallstattersee region was recognized by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its great natural and cultural heritage. The idyllic village of Hallstatt is “the jewel of this region” and additionally Bad Ischl, Bad Aussee, St. Wolfgang and St. Gilgen are some of our other favorite villages you will encounter on this visually spectacular tour.
