The Alpe Adria Cycle Route (Ciclovia Alpe Adria Radweg, hence the acronym CAAR), a cross-border long-distance cycle route linking Salzburg, on the northern side of the Alps, to Grado, a well-known Italian tourist and thermal center, overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
This itinerary is considered one of the most heterogeneous and scenographic cycling routes in Europe and offers continuous surprises for cyclists. You will cycle through pleasant towns, medieval villages and characteristic villages, riding along the banks of placid rivers and foaming streams that sometimes disappear into wild ravines.
From the suggestive alpine valleys, rich in woods and dominated by high mountains, we descend towards the fertile Friuli plain and the sunny Mediterranean beaches. While cycling along this path you will surely be fascinated by the continuous succession of natural wonders, historical monuments, rich popular culture and typical dishes of the regions crossed.
There is therefore no wonder that the number of cyclists who choose this track for their cycling holidays is increasing year after year!
Confirming its spectacular nature, the Alpe Adria Radweg cycle route has won numerous awards. Among the most prestigious are the recognition of "Best Cycle of the Year 2015" during the active tourism fair in Amsterdam (Fiets en Wandelbeurs) and the "Oscar of Cycle tourism" at the Cosmobike in Verona in 2016.
I hope these pages will help you organize your cycling holiday on our Ciclovia Alpe Adria Radweg!
