Explore the striking countryside of the Tyrolean Alps by bike with Drau Cycle Route. Visitors can cross from Italy to Austria on this international cycling path. The paved 44 km (27 mi) trail passes villages, meadows, and mountains. Because San Candido is 500 m (1,640 ft) higher than the endpoint in Austria, even novices can complete the ride in two to three hours.

  • It is almost 43 km from San Candido to Lienz, very enjoyable and not at all tiring. We also found excellent weather conditions. You traverse picturesque landscapes and stops to refuel or have some very interesting fun, including the delicious stop at the famous Loacker. It is also feasible for unsportsmen, for teenagers and younger children. It's worth it.

  • We rented the bike in San Candido and arrived in Lienz which is located in Austria. The bike path is beautiful and very well cared for. It is about 43 km but it is recommended for everyone as almost all flat. We left the bike in Austria and returned by train
