First day – Arriving at Radstadt / Tauern
You'll receive all travel documents about 14 days before departure. They contain the exact hotel address and further information. Please arrive by about 6:00 p.m. You'll meet your group and the guide. After discussing the tour, the group will go to dinner together.
Second day – From Radstadt to Mauterndorf – 54 km, 1300 m elevation gain
The tour starts right away with a highlight. After a nearly 1000 meter climb, we will have passed over the main ridge of the Alps. The Nock Mountains already greet us with southern sun. We'll stay in a guesthouse in Mauterndorf, just like in the days of the mail coaches.
Third day – From Mauterndorf to Rennweg/Katschberg – 35 km, 1400 m elevation gain
The mountains around St. Michael im Lungau have long been a bit of an insider tip. After a great descent, we'll fortify ourselves with a coffee for the steep ascent to the quaint hut where we'll have lunch. We'll reach our hotel via a trail. High on the mountain, we'll enjoy the wellness area and the evening mood.
Fourth day – From Rennweg/Katschberg to Spittal – 65 km, 1350 m elevation gain
The second pinnacle stage starts with a brisk descent, but then we'll have to climb the nearly 2000 meter high Millstaetter Törl. Luckily, there's already freshly prepared mountain trout available on the ascent. Almost like on an airplane, we will then float down to the deep blue lake, directly to the spa-area of our hotel.
Fifth day – From Spittal to Hermagor – 62 km, 800 m elevation gain
Patches of fog often provide a mystical morning mood at the lake, then the cable car will quickly bring us up to 2000 meters altitude. We'll enjoy the view - it's like being on the roof of the world. About midday, we'll be back "down" at the Weissensee - Austria's highest bathing place. From here, it's only a few sweaty turns of the cranks over the foothills of the Gailtal Alps to our destination of Hermagor.
Sixth day – From Hermagor to Latschach – 60 km, 800 m elevation gain
Today, we will start our day of mountain biking with a view of the wild peaks of the Carnic Alps. After the time spent at altitude in the last couple days, some will be glad that we're now in the Gail Valley. This is well known for its many charms. However, the afternoon climb high above the blue Lake Faak reminds us to shift down to our smaller gears. We’ll stay the night in a charming location high above the lake.
Seventh day – From Latschach to Kranjska Gora – 50 km, 1000 m elevation gain
With a grand finale, we're now heading for the week's destination. As we cross the breathtaking border, the Karawanks receive us, wild and beautiful. In this solitude there aren't any mountain huts – luckily we've packed a picnic. This day surpasses all our previous experiences. Kranjska Gora, here we are!
Eighth day – Departure
After breakfast, the bikes are loaded onto the bus. Return trip by bus back to Radstadt. Upon arrival, everyone travels home individually.
„Not every passionate mountain biker jumps for joy when they hear the word "trails". For all sports aficionados who would like to climb to an altitude of 1300 meters, but don't want to deal with roots or rocky steps on their descents, this new tour is simply ideal. The entire route runs primarily on good gravel roads through the most magnificent mountain scenery. Some parts are steep and lonely, but the paths don't require any overly technical acrobatics. The short technical passages can also be quickly overcome by pushing.“
