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. 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
The gondola brings us quickly to an altitude of 2000 meters. 300 meters above sea level and we enjoy the view as if on the roof of the world. Around noon we are again down at the Weißensee - Austria's highest bathing place. From here it is only a few sweaty turns of the crank over the foothills of the Gailtaler Alps to the day's destination Hermagor.
Sixth day – From Hermagor to Kranjska Gora – 57 km, 550 m elevation gain
With a view of the wild peaks of the Carnic Alps we start our mountain bike day today. After the steep ascents of the last days some of us are happy to be in the Gailtal now. During the long ascent up to the border triangle at 1500 meters altitude the gondola helps us. On gravel roads we race down to the world cup village Kranjska Gora.
Seventh day – From Kranjska Gora to Bovec – 61 km, 1250 m elevation gain
With a great finale we are heading towards our weekly goal. The Vrisic Pass is the gateway to Triglav National Park. An old military road leads up into the wild mountains of Slovenia. Then we descend into the Soca valley and spend the night in the outdoor paradise Bovec.
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 steeply to an altitude of 1400 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.“
