Italy – Austria – Slovenia

Road Bike

June 2022

Designed for the recreational cyclist looking for fun & scenic rides with plenty of support, time to stop and enjoy. This trip runs concurrently with the Italy-Austria-Slovenia Hiking and Yoga Adventure. Great for couples where one person would like to hike and the other cycle–also options to do both.

Valbruna Italy

The charming hamlet of Valbruna will be the starting base for your adventure. The first 4 nights and 4 days will be filled with beautiful lakes, rides into the Slovenian National Park and outstanding mountain views. Our rides will take us to the fairytale town of Bled, along the Soca River, over Vrsic Pass and glacier lakes of Fusine and Predl.

Lienz

After our time in Valbruna, we travel to the town of Lienz in Southern Austria where a well deserved day off allows you to take some personal time at the pool and spa or go on a via ferrata adventure. Lienz is a lively Village with plenty of shopping and charm. Lovely dinners are planned on the deck alongside the River Drau. 2 nights in Lienz

Kitzbühel

From Lienz our journey continues as we travel up and over the Grossglockner Pass (highest in Austria) to the small Austrian alpine town of Kitzbühel. Well known for the annual Hahnenkamm downhill ski race, Kitzbühel is quaint with its upscale shops and cafes lining the streets of its medieval center. Kitzbühel is a great final day with hiking the Hahnenkamm or cycling the Kitzbüheler Horn to cap the adventure. 2 nights in Kitzbühel

We hope you can join us on this beautiful tour. The tour is designed for multiple levels of cycling fitness and experience, ideal for couples, individuals, seasoned and novice riders. Our desire is for each person to enjoy the trip and the areas we travel through. The smaller size of our group and the option for E-bikes, allows for tailoring to varied levels of ability. We can shorten a day for some and add more challenge and length to a day for others. We like to budget time for cultural, historical and the region’s spectacular sites.
