Alpe Adria Salzburg – Grado
An enjoyable bike trip from the mountains to the sea
Price: ab 779.00 €
Alpe Adria bike trip
Across the Alps to the Adriatic Sea – that sounds like hard work! It is not quite as exhausting, if you choose the Alpe Adria cycle route. On the well marked paths the crossing of the Alps is also feasible for pleasure cyclists, because the ascent to the main ridge of the Alps is divided into two daily stages, the last one will be done by using the train. On your journey you will cross the idyllic Salzach valley, Bad Gastein, the impressive high mountain landscape of the Hohe Tauern, the sunny Drautal and the wildly rugged valley Kanaltal. Cycling on the Via Julia Augusta you pass Palmanova and Aquileia and get to the fishing village of Grado.
Characteristics of the route
The tour runs along bike paths or very quiet side roads, through small villages and picturesque landscape. The most challenging section over the Pass Lueg can also be bypassed by train. The tour is suitable for children over 16 years.

The region’s biggest and sweetest treat is the Wiesener “strawberry”. The wonderful scent of the sun-ripened fruits and the sparkling Rosalia Frizzante rosé make your mouth water. If it were not a strawberry, you would have to address it like royalty. Meadow festivals, the Mecca of Jazz, the Bad Sauerbrunn Spa Concerts or Forchtenstein Castle are waiting for you with a colourful festival programme.

Yellow, red, blue, dotted, small, large, round and oblong, waxy and floury anyway – potato varieties are like stars in the sky. For Hans Moser and Andrea, this is always an incentive to cultivate unusual “newcomers” in addition to popular standard varieties here in Salzburg’s Lungau region every year.

The whitefish innkeepers at Lake Millstatt do what their ancestors used to do: Every day they take the whitefish from the floating nets and process it straightaway. What the emperor used to enjoyed is still considered a delicacy today.

In my bag I have a surprise for leisure cyclists – a regional snack and a good Styrian wine. I won’t say when and where I show up with my picnic hamper.
