No, no typo in this title. The Klopeiner See - Südkärnten region not only lets mountain bikers enjoy riding on the mountain, but also offers them courses in open-air mines. For those not scared of the dark, of course.

Helmet on, mine lamp on, the tunnels await... At around eight degrees Celsius and humidity of 95 percent, you cycle through the old mine, past breathtaking stone formations en route and into mountain halls almost 30 metres high - where you can greet the Lord of the Rings. It may sound dangerous - but the tunnel biking experience is actually one the whole family can enjoy.
