Alpe Adria cycle path

Across the Alps from SALZBURG to GRADO – classic

A cycling tour across the Alps to the Adriatic Sea - it literally "smells" of fresh alpine meadows, the treetops sway in the alpine landscape and the sun flashes between the mountain peaks.
There is a colourful scenario between mountain and valley in the Alpine area, until the wide lagoon of Grado the salty breeze of the Adriatic welcomes you.
On your cycling tour you will cycle through the idyllic Salzach valley and the Gastein valley and cross the impressive high mountain landscape of the Hohe Tauern by train. Across the sunny Drau valley and the wildly rugged Canal valley you reach the fertile hilly landscape of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. On the Via Julia Augusta you cycle via the historic city of Aquileia to the picturesque lagoon of Grado.
