Your rides will take you to, and alongside some of the best lakes the area has to offer and also introduce you to some of the history of the area from the Imperial Spa town of Bad Ischl to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hallstatt.

Your base for the duration of the holiday is the 4 Star Hotel Goiserer Muhle in Bad Goisern, on the Muhlbach river. With award-winning gourmet cuisine and a small spa with sauna, steam bath, and solarium you'll be able to relax after a day of cycling.
