Mountainbiking Zillertal Valley

© Zilltertal Arena Tirol
  • More than 800 km of mountain bike trails, three of them are challenging single trails, are spread all over the fabulous Zillertal Valley. Both beginners and real experts can choose from myriad routes and rest stops. Pros shouldn't miss out on trying the Zillertal Bike Challenge, one of the Alps' most demanding stage races.
  • Those who prefer a more leisurely pace enjoy a ride in the scenic Zillertal Bahn cog railway or one of the top modern mountain gondolas offering mountain bike transport.
  • Beginners get together on Zillertal's "Finkenberg - Hintertux Bichlalm" route with moderate ascents. Once arrived on the hut, you indulge in mouth-watering specialties.
  • The trail to Isskogel in Gerlos and further on to Wilde Krimml is quite challenging and requires enough stamina. Uninterrupted views are guaranteed high above the treeline. Sporty bikers also head for the panoramic "Zillertaler Höhenstraße".
