Austria’s mountain world presents a special challenge to bikers and cyclists. The trains in the Samnaun region e.g. offer bike transports for free and detailed trail directions make it easy to find the right way. Seefeld boasts beautiful cycling tours from one mountain hut to the next, passing by rich green pastures and deep-blue mountain lakes. And at the bottom of the Kaiser mountain range cyclists will find all they can wish for.
This is true also for South Tyrol, where beautiful mountains and green rolling hills combine to create a paradise for cyclists (pic). Cycling tracks are steadily enhanced and lead to the most picturesque places. Take a chance and discover this unique natural beauty by bike - or at times even train. Our tip: cycle to Merano, the world’s oldest spa town, where a highly comfortable train takes you to the enchanting Val Venosta valley. And your bike brings you back to the starting point again. Or vice versa.
Biking without limits - this is possible all over the Alpine region! The Engadin region and Val Müstair in Switzerland, the Resia Pass and Nauders in Austria and Val Venosta in South Tyrol have created a common network of cycling trails, boasting a total of 120 tours for cyclists and mountain bikers alike. Thus, the biggest biking arena of the Alps (see “mountain bike”) is waiting to be explored.
The Upper Franconian region in Germany provides e.g. a network of cycling trails with 6 different tours and even France boasts numerous well-designed cycling trails. Discover Slovenia while cycling on quaint sides streets, along sunny rivers and across mountainous landscapes. In Switzerland, challenging mountain tours and stunning views guarantee unique cycling experiences!
