Biking in the Alta Pusteria
The Drava Cycling Path
The Drava Cycling Path runs from the source of the Drava river at Toblach/Dobbiaco, the so-called Toblach meadows, all the way from Italy along the river of that name through East Tyrol via Carinthia to its final destination of Maribor in Slovenia. The whole ride is approximately 220 miles long.
As especially the intermediate route track from Toblach/Dobbiaco to Lienz in East Tyrol is on a gentle downward slope, the Drava cycling path is particularly suitable for families with small children. There are many stops to charge your batteries or have a drink or food along the way and for the way back it is easy and comfortable to take the train. The route is well signposted, all paved and generally runs right beside the river.
- Level of difficulty: easy
- Total length: 28 miles approximately
Thanks to an e-bike, biking seems like being pushed by the wind on your side. With the help of your own muscles it will no longer be a prerogative for the very bike-addicts only to join, for example, the Misurina Lake or Plätzwiese/Prato Piazza at more than 2000 metres above the sea. Thanks to e-bikes everybody can bike like hell. Who has tried it once will hardly want to go back to the traditional bikes, at least in our mountain areas.
