Zillertal, Austria MTB & E-Bike
Two of Austria’s hidden mountain bike secrets lie opposite each other, 30 minutes east of Innsbruck. Head south from the A12 autobahn into the Zillertal Valley – the crown jewel in a ring of peaks over 3,000 meters high with breathtaking terrain, alpine lakes, fresh air and over 150 mountain huts – many with incredible culinary delights. An abundance of trails and a variety of terrains will entice and delight mountain bikers of all abilities. From gravity-fed downhill bike parks, to scenic and meandering fire roads, to technical and challenging singletrack, there is something for everyone!
Cross back over the A12, head north and you’re in the Brandenberg Alps (aka Rofan Mountains) that surround Tirol’s largest lake – the stunning and pristine turquoise Lake Achensee. Explore over 250km of trails for every ability, and bask in the uninterrupted panoramic views of the Achensee as you follow singletrack deep into the Tyrolian region. Steeped in history, these challenging and well-marked trails are a cyclist’s paradise.
Accommodations for the week are at the Sport Residenz Zillertal – a spectacular 4-StarS property that is a paradise for cyclists, skiers, golfers and connoisseurs of impeccable service. All 33 rooms and suites are characterized by mountain modern concepts, utilizing natural materials and are warm and inviting. After a perfect day on the Zillertal and Rofan trails, you can spend some time in their beautiful 1,000m² Cloud 7 Spa. Various saunas, steam baths and heated roof top infinity pool will pamper your body and soul after a fantastic day of riding!
