Do your children love cycling? Then go on an eventful family bike tour in Carinthia with your young pedal riders. The Drau cycle path, which has been awarded 5 stars by the ADFC, is particularly family-friendly and offers numerous attractions along the way that are also interesting for kids. The route leads from Lienz in East Tyrol on the edge of the Carinthian Hohe Tauern National Park region to Villach. On this family bike tour there are shorter daily stages of approx. 30 km and therefore enough time to rest, play, swim and for other holiday adventures. The exciting attractions range from climbing parks to swimming lakes and adventure swimming pools. In Villach, the Kärnten Therme thermal baths with lots of adventure slides and the nearby, bright turquoise-green Faak Lake tempt you.
