It is the poster child of the cycling region of Carinthia and crosses several borders on its way from South Tyrol (Toblach) to Legrad in Croatia, passing through East Tyrol, Carinthia and Slovenia.

The River Drava Cycle Trail (R1) links four countries: Italy, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia ‒ no borders, brez meja, senza confini, bez granica. Running a total of some 510 km (222 of which are located in Carinthia), it meanders from the Toblacher Feld/Sella di Dobbiaco mountain pass in South Tyrol to the Croatian-Slovenian border at Varaždin.
