The approximate difficulty level for this tour
Day 1:Individual arrival in Innsbruck
Tour briefing and distribution of the bikes. Tourists come to Innsbruck to see the world famous Bergisel Ski Jump and the Golden Roof.
Day 2: Innsbruck – Strass/Zillertal approx. 50 km
You head to Wattens with the steeply towering North Chain of the Karwendel mountains at your side. You will pass through the saline town of Hall with its historical Mint tower. Here you can visit the enchanting Swarovski Crystal Worlds. You then cycle along the Inn cycle path past Schwaz, where there is a silver mine until you get to the cycling village of Strass.
Day 3: Strass/Zillertal – Krimml approx. 25 – 45 km + transfer
You cycle along the easy-going Zillertal bike path until you get to Zell or even a bit further along to the well-known Mayrhofen. Whilst doing so, you have an amazing mountain view of the Zillertal main ridge with its huge peaks over 3000m high. A bus will provide you with a transfer in the early afternoon over the Gerlospass to Krimml. Already during this journey, you will be able to admire Europe’s biggest waterfall, which you can then also view by foot on a high path later on.
Day 4: Krimml – Kaprun/Zell am See approx. 60 km
Today’s stage runs through the Hohe Tauern national park and Upper Pinzgau. Whilst doing so, you will have snow topped mountains in sight. With the view alternating between lush green meadows and small villages, today’s cycle offers you truly magical scenery. In Kaprun you can visit the Kaprun high mountain reservoirs.
Day 5: Kaprun/Zell am See – Lofer approx. 50 km
It is highly recommended for you to take a refreshing swim in Lake Zell, which is also an opportunity for any sporty cyclists among you to go for an extra spin. You quickly arrive in Saalfelden via Maria Alm where there is a famous pilgrimage church. This is a great place for you to enjoy lunch. Further highlights on your way to Lofer include the Seisenbergklamm (gorge) and the Lamprechtshöhle (caves) near Weißbach.
Day 6: Lofer – Salzburg approx. 50 km
On your last day’s cycle you cycle through the tranquil Saalach valley. Bad Reichenhall will captivate you with its bavarian flair. You only have a little bit further to go before arriving in the Mozart City of Salzburg. The cultural here is sure to impress. You should have enough time for a stroll around the old town and to visit Mozart’s birth house.
Day 7: Departure or extension
Along the rivers and lakes the terrain is mainly flat with interspersed slight hills. There are mainly cycle paths and small rural roads, however only on short sections, cycling on roads with moderate traffic is unfortunately unavoidable.
