30 kilometres, 246 metres altitude difference

 After two days with a total of more than 1,400 metres altitude difference, the short third stage nearly feels like a half rest day. If it wasn’t for the 1,074 m high Kreuzbergsattel pass. But, because Lake Weissensee already lies at 930 m altitude, the difference is easily managed. And then, after the ascent, it’s a lovely, long downhill stretch through the Gitschtal valley towards Hermagor. From here, the route leads on flat ground along the Gailtal cycle path to Lake Pressegger See. Make sure to leave enough time for a dip in the warm bathing lake!
