Trails in Carinthia – let it rip.
There’s something to be said for that. Freedom on two wheels. High up and steep down. The views up there? Fabulous. A reward for the thigh-burning ascent. How about exploring the trails with the extra battery boost of an e-bike? Quite clever.
Discover the nock/bike region of Bad Kleinkirchheim, Feld am See and Millstätter See on 750 km of well-signposted bike paths. Along with idyllic lakes here and there to cool off following a hot ride.

Around Lake Millstättersee or to Lake Brennsee
You don’t necessarily need to tackle altitude meters, peaks or thigh-burning ascents. That’s what we think. And many others who head off on a circular tour around Lake Millstätter See, rewarding themselves not only with kilometers of enjoyable cycling and stupendous lake views, but also fantastic sunsets. Complete with box seats in Millstatt, Dellach and Döbriach. Upon prior reservation, the nock/bike shuttle is available for a convenient ride back from Döbriach to Bad Kleinkirchheim.
How about a racy descent to Lake Brennsee? Uphill either comfortably with the Kaiserburgbahn cable car or your own muscle power. Riders can then look forward to a speedy descent along the mountain-lake trail all the way back to the shores of Lake Brennsee for a refreshing dip to finish off. The nock/bike shuttle takes you back to Bad Kleinkirchheim
