- Gentle traffic-free cycling trails
- Excellent hotels, most with spas and pools
- Enjoy plenty of swimming and water sports
This gentle self-guided itinerary offers fantastic flexibility allowing you to make the most of the area and tailor it to suit you. The cycling distances are short, but with options to extend or shorten your route on most days; and, a free day is built in on alternate days so you can try a water sport, enjoy a boat ride or take a train into the mountains. Mondsee, Gmunden and Bad Ischl add cultural and historic highlights to this natural playground, while the hotels add comfort, luxury and warm hospitality to your evenings.
What makes this trip responsible?
Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company.
As a self-guided trip you will be pedalling under your own steam and at your own pace. You will not be part of a group so the impact of your visit on the landscape and communities you pass will be absolutely minimal. Our local operator works with local suppliers and hoteliers to ensure that we support the communities we visit, maximising the benefit to them and also our enjoyment of the region. We will stay in characterful, locally run hotels and the route notes will often give you hints and tips of local restaurants you can try, giving you a taste of the local cuisine while helping to support these establishments. Moreover, we encourage you to journey by train to minimise your carbon footprint.
