MTB routes & trails for every taste

Classic routes for beginners & advanced riders

Beginners and advanced touring riders and road bike riders love the forest and asphalt routes! Little to high ascent ratio and only few single trails on the downhill parts provide the classic mountain bike feeling. If you want, you can use the cable car for the ascent. Panorama- and pleasure-loving riders get to take a little breather at one of the many rustic huts. The primary focus of these classic tours is experiencing nature to the fullest.

Forest trails on the way up and single trails on the way down, freeride marathons, cable car tours or vertriding: enduro riders are true allrounders. And those get spoiled with plenty of diverse highlights in Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See! Fun on the trail with friends and lasting memories of your time in nature guaranteed.
