The approximate difficulty level for this tour
1st day: Arrival in Strass im Zillertal
2nd Day: Zillertal Valley approx. 60 km
The Zillertal bicycle path is nearby and leads you directly to Mayrhofen, slightly ascending (2%) at the end of the valley. Take the cable car up into the Zillertal glacier world or visit the “Erlebnissennerei Zillertal”, a typical Zillertal alpine dairy. Old connecting roads lead back – and, of course, slightly downhill – to the hotel.
3rd day: Lakes Tour approx. 35 km
Quickly you will have reached the Inn cycle path (Innradweg). It will lead you to Kramsach and slightly uphill to Lake Krummsee and Lake Reintalersee (Tyrolean farm museum). Rattenberg, the oldest and smallest town in Austria, invites you to stay a while to admire the magnificent town and enjoy yourself in one of the many cafés and restaurants.
4th Day: Innsbruck & Inntal Valley approx. 50 km + train journey
Today, you will cycle to Innsbruck. We recommend visiting the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens and the old salt town of Hall in Tirol with its famous Münzturm tower. And of course you should spend some time in Innsbruck with its charming old town (Golden Roof, City Tower, Helbing House, Hofburg, Imperial Church), the Hungerburg panorama terrace and the modern ski jump (with a café in the tower). At the end of your trip you will take the train back to Strass valley.
5th Day: Schwaz and Wolfsklamm Gorge approx. 30 km
Once again you will be ready to get on the Inn cycle pathto cycle to the west. But this time you will use different ways than before. In Schwaz you can visit the silver mine, in Stans you can hike through the Wolfsklamm gorge and on the way back you can make a stop at the Tratzberg castle.
6th Day: Kufstein – the “Pearl” on the River Inn approx. 40 km
The last cycling day’s route will lead you along the river Inn to Kufstein, the “pearl” on the river Inn. The fort with its Heldenorgel organ and the Planetarium are worth a visit. On the way there, we recommend stopping at the Kundler Klamm gorge. Later, the train will take you back to Jenbach, from where it is only a few kilometers to the hotel.
7th Day: Departure or extension
The terrain is flat to slightly hilly with some short climbs. You will find yourself almost exclusively on paved roads or on natural roads which are in good condition.
