A tour to the Mountains and Lakes of Carinthia
New Tour : I have had a motorcycle tour map of Carinthia sat on my shelf for many years, and so I decided it was time I dusted it off, and visit there to ride some of the great routes it suggests.
For many, the first question will be, "where's Carinthia" ? Which is fair enough because although it is an area I have passed through many times it's not somewhere I had considered as a destination. Carinthia is actiually the southernmost Austrian state and as such enjoys a more Mediterranean like climate. Situated within the Eastern Alps, it is noted for its mountains and over 200 lakes offering great biking roads and stunning scenery. It is also perfectly located for riding into Italy and Slovenia.
We stay for 4 nights at one base, which will suit those who like to unpack, relax and enjoy daily ride-outs.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups. However, if it is your first time abroad, or you just prefer, you may ride with the guide, who will act as your escort throughout the tour.
