Cycling & Mountain Biking in the Nassfeld-Lake Pressegger See Region

Leisurely discover the sunny South on your bike

The region Nassfeld-Lesachtal-Weißensee is ideally suited for guests who want to explore their immediate surroundings, without becoming breathless. 

There are over 100kms of majority asphalted cycle paths in the Gail and Gitsch valleys, which take you through woods, along streams passing through dreamy villages. 

Both our campsites are located in the middle or the Gail valley cycle path R3, and are therefore a great starting point to discover our beautiful region.

Every season we organise weekly family cycle tours, which all the family from toddlers through to grandparents can easily cope with. The tours take you downhill, along the River Gail and its delightful villages. There are numerous opportunities to stop and sample the local food , e.g.  Fischzucht Zerza in Waldegg are always happy to see you. 

A typical example of one of our tours would be a day trip for you and your family going towards Villach. The return trip is equally easy, as we use the train. Of course we have built in rest periods, where you can also sample local dishes. The “Schütter Alm”a small alpine hut located in the valley is a wonderful example of what awaits you, offering traditional specialities (smoked hams, cheeses etc.) all from the region

Our cycle tours are mostly 35-45 kms (about 4/5 hours duration), and therefore suitable for all the family. 

You can hire City-Bikes from both campsites. 

For the more sporty – you can still enjoy the natural beauty 

You want to be active on holiday, getting to know the land and its people? Then our guided mountain bike tours are just the right thing. Expend your energies on the countless paths and reward yourself by taking a stop and the many alm huts along the way. 

Whether you are a beginner or experienced practitioner, we offer a wide range of tours that also take in to account the seasons. 

You can hire mountain bikes next to our site Schluga Camping Hermagor at Bike-Paradies (about 200m).
