Amazing scenery, cultural variety, culinary treasures - cycling in Tirol highlights the diversity of the region. Above all, families and leisure cyclists appreciate the well-built and largely flat cycle paths. Whether you traverse Tirol from west to east on the Inn Cycle Trail, or follow the Via Claudia Augusta in the footsteps of the Romans or experience the Drau Cycle Trail in East Tirol, you can combine sporting activity with delightful rest breaks. In the many participating inns cyclists can enjoy specialities of traditional Tirolean cuisine.

Riders with plenty of stamina have come to the right place. Osttirol’s mountain panorama is your constant companion on this 4-day circuit – you’ll feel like you can reach out and touch the 3000-metre peaks all around you. The tour begins in Lienz and heads for the Anna Schutzhaus, which is known for offering some of the prettiest sunset views in Tirol. Day Two begins with a long descent, leading onto a forestry road and on up to the Lienzer Hütte. The Zettersfeld – the rest stop during the third stage – promises magnificent views. A relaxing descent is followed by an ascent to the Hochsteinhütte. The Sternalm is also happy to welcome those who don’t feel like peddling the entire 1300m of elevation gain. This wonderful circuit concludes with a fast-paced descent and one last climb up to the Lienzer Dolomiten Hütte, and/or a refreshing dip in Lake Tristacher See.

This is an easy introduction to the biking world. A perfect tour for all those who want to start out or return to biking in the mountains. Here, you can ride over classic routes without having to exceed your fitness and technical limits. Imst is the starting point of this 3-day circuit, where an initial slight ascent followed by a descent to Telfs introduces you from the outset to the appeal of mountain biking. The second ascent to Klamm in the Leutasch can be shortened by taking public transport if you prefer. On the second day, the tour continues through the scenic Gaistal to Lake Igelsee and stops in Ehrwald after another fun downhill ride. After you make it over the Fernpass on the last day, a terrific downhill ride along a wide gravel path awaits you on the way back to Imst.

A Royal Tirolean delight. This 136-km tour is well suited to those who’d like an easy going introduction to cycling in the mountains. It follows a soft and gentle route through the hilly landscape around the Nieder Kaiser, the Zahmer and the Wilder Kaiser Mountains and skirts the Loferer Steinberge. As is only fitting for a truly high-class Tirolean experience, on one of the four stages of the tour you triumph more than 1000 metres of elevation gain. Otherwise you can feel free to indulge and fully interact with your surroundings and the wild, natural landscapes. This is top-quality mountain biking for those who wish to take it more leisurely.

Four days through the heart of the Karwendel. Experienced mountain bikers will enjoy this tour, as it offers a fantastic blend of classic and highly-regarded routes, plus newly opened sections. It also lets you experience the picturesque beauty of Tirol’s largest lake, the Achensee. The tour leads you through the very heart of the Karwendel range, where two demanding ascents are followed by two relaxing and magnificent downhill sections. You’ll enjoy the route through the Almen in the Karwendel’s northern range near Innsbruck for its terrific panoramic views of the Inn Valley and the well-earned and delicious treats you’ll find along the way. The mountains’ irresistible hold over you will reach its peak in the Rofan range, where solitude unites with the landscape to create total harmony.

It’s all in the name – this 3-day circuit keeps it in constant view. Highly motivated riders begin the first stage in Imst, with its demanding ascent of the Marienbergjoch. It will get your pulse racing from the start. You will have time to recover during the subsequent downhill ride past Lake Weißensee and during the smoother valley trail before you reach your destination in Reutte. The next leg leads past Lake Plansee and back up into the mountains to the Ehrwalder Alm. The exceptional landscape on the downhill segment through the Gaistal will provide inspiration to take you all the way to the second stage’s destination, Seefeld. The third and final physical challenge will test your limits again, peddling up and over the Schweinsteinjoch and Dirstentrittkreuz, before a terrific trail leads you back down to Imst.

An active expedition through Tirol’s romantic, wild west. This highly diverse, 4-day tour requires a small amount of physical fitness from its cyclists. It starts in Serfaus, and after the “Schönen Aussicht” (“lovely view”), a downhill ride takes you into the Inn Valley, before a series of moderately difficult ascents take you up to Kappl. The second day is especially challenging, because you’ll achieve 1,200 metres of elevation gain crammed into a mere 23 kilometres taking you to today’s destination, the Heidelberger Hütte. Day 3 is action-packed, taking you from the Fimberpass all the way back down into the valley and on to Nauders. If you like technically skilful downhill tracks, then you’ll love this tour. The final stage back to Serfaus is slightly flatter – giving you time to fully absorb the fabulous landscape.

A highlight of the main section of the Alps. Beginning in the region’s vibrant capital, six stages lead you deep into the Tirolean mountain territory. The technically straightforward ride over the Geiseljoch into the Zillertal on the first day presents a physical fitness challenge. The second leg is more easygoing, travelling through an impressive alpine landscape to Weerberg and Matrei am Brenner. From here, the tour takes you to Maria Waldrast, a pilgrimage site between the Wipp and Stubai Valleys. The tour reaches its westernmost destination in Kühtai; from there, the tour loops back towards Innsbruck.

Ideal for novice mountain bikers. This 3-day circuit leads you through the gentle landscape of the western Kitzbühel Alps. It begins in Wörgl, pleasantly warming up your muscles during the first few level kilometres. A 7.5 km ascent demands a bit more effort, but offers fantastic views in return, plus a thrilling downhill ride which carries you to Reith in the Alpbachtal. Invigorated by the atmosphere in the idyllic side valley, the second leg follows a scenic gravel road to the highest point in the tour, the Ausserkolkaseralm. After pushing your bike a short distance, the refreshing descent to Niederau begins on the other side of the mountain ridge. The last day features more energetic ascents, speedy downhills and breathtaking alpine panoramas.

Follow the Romans’ route through the mountains. About 2,000 years ago, the Roman emperor ordered a road to be built between the Adriatic and Augsburg. While you won’t encounter any legionnaires here, you will find tourists who love sporty activities, the mountains and history. The latter comes alive through the carefully preserved museums, and in the restaurants along the route as well. More than 30 innkeepers serve delicious ancient dishes, prepared according to the original recipes and from the same ingredients that were already in use centuries ago. As well as benefiting from the luggage transfer service, you also have the option of travelling in comfort when traversing the route’s two passes (the Fern and Reschen Passes) by taking the shuttle, this journey over the old Roman road truly offers comfort that the ancient imperators could only have dreamed of.

For families and those who like to take things slow and easy. The Drau River passes through the sedate Osttirol on its way from the Toblacher Feld to Slovenia. This cycle path features a number of amenities, especially for families, as almost all of it runs along the nearly flat valley floor. You’ll find idyllic resting spots and wonderful opportunities to play, like the Wichtelpark (‘Gnome Playground’) near Sillian. Cultural and culinary connoisseurs will also enjoy cycling along the Drau. Lienz is outstanding among Tirol’s towns. The “Aigner-Badl”, a former farmers’ recreational facility with mineral springs, is just west of there. And it seems the Roman spirit still prevails at the archaeological site Auguntum. And if you get hungry, you’ll find plenty of innkeepers along the Drau Cycle Path who are eager to indulge you with original East Tirolean specialities.

A journey for body and soul. Along this classic cycling tour, you’ll follow the blue-green alpine river on its voyage from its source in Engadin until it joins the Danube near Passau. A large portion of the Inn Cycle Route winds through Tirol and helps cyclists appreciate how much the Inn has shaped the valley’s topography. After tackling a couple of small hills at the start, much of the remaining route leads over flat riverside trails and occasionally over short gravel sections. This tour through the richly varied alpine landscape and into historic towns and villages is ideal for families and laid-back cyclists: sightseeing, culinary treats in public houses along the way and the opportunities for active and cultural trips make your days in the saddle an adventure for all your senses.
