Cycle to the Lessach Valley in Lungau

At the junction shown above, go straight on to cycle up to the Lessach Valley. Follow the road signs and cycle up along the main valley road, which for quite some way follows the river until you reach Lessach. This is quite a climb but quite manageable with E-bikes.

At the information point in Lessach, turn right past some houses, and head down a steep hill until you reach a small car park and wooden bridge across the river with a small toll point for cars. Continue along the path into this beautiful valley. Home cooked food from the farm can be obtained at the Lenznalm where you can also charge up the E-bikes or further along the path at the Laßhoferalm.
