Additional nights in Salzburg and enroute at any of the hotels

1. Day one
Salzburg

Arrive in Salzburg and check into your hotel - a rococo lakeside palace just a short walk from the old town of Salzburg. Enjoy exploring the gardens and palace as well as the gems of the city itself. Packed with museums, palaces and historic streets, there's a lot to discover. Your host will meet you this evening with your bikes and helmets and will run through the itinerary

2. Day two
Salzburg to Mattsee

Off you go, leaving the city along the Salzach River heading towards Oberndorf. From here you ride to Michaelbeuern with its Augustinian convent and into the lakes area, to the shores of Lake Mattsee where you will spend the night in the old palace brewery

34 miles (55km)

3. Day three
Mattsee to Mondsee

Pedal through a nature reserve area to unspoilt Neumarkt this morning, located near Lake Wallersee and enjoy a coffee in the traditional market square. The ride then leads through pretty country to romantic Lake Irrsee and onto 7 mile long Lake Mondsee. You might like a dip here, being the warmest lake in the Salzkammergut before relaxing in your lakeside hotel

31 miles (50km)

4. Day four
Mondsee to Traunsee

Today's breathtaking ride takes you along 3 lakes - from stunning Mondsee to a boat ride on Attersee, disembarking in Weyregg and a pedal to Gmunden on Lake Traunsee. What a day with a quiet ride along the Aurachtal valley to round things off! Your overnight stay is in a historic castle overlooking Traunsee

5. Day five
Traunsee to Hallstatt

With a train hop today, there's time to explore the ice caves and salt mines of the area as well as the World Heritage listed village of Hallstatt with its picture postcard lakeside setting. The mighty Dachstein glacier massif offers a dramatic backdrop in a day you will not forget with an overnight stay in Hallstatt itself

19 miles (30km)

6. Day six
Hallstatt to Wolfgangsee

Start the day with a boat trip acoss Hallstattersee and continue on to Bad Goisern and the imperial health resort of Bad Ischl.

31 miles (50km)

7. Day seven
Wolfgangsee to Salzburg

Much of today's ride follows the old railway line from Salzburg to Bad Ischl which takes you along the shore of Wolfgangsee to delightful St Gilgen where Mozart's sister was born.
