"With this tour starting from Mittersill you will have a great mix of tarmac and gravel and if you want, a tiny bit of single trail, as well as two streams to cross!"

Yep, the beginning is a bit steep and might be a hike, but we’re escaping the traffic and in 5 minutes you will find yourself on a tiny road with literally no traffic. Soon the tarmac ends and the landscape opens up. WOW! Don’t miss out and take some pictures. On hot days we can cool down on the next section through a forest. There are 2 tiny streams to cross. Just splash through full speed on your bike! This is where the fun begins. 😉
Soon you will leave the forest and make your way up to the lake on Resterhöhe. This is the most beautiful scenery you can think of! Enjoy a minute of silence and the view on the high peaks of the Hohe Tauern National Park towards the south. You have plenty of Alpine Huts to choose for a break! If you wish, you can extend your loop and go up the 2036m high “Zweitausender” peak If not you can go down straight to the valley. Whatever you choose awaiting you are about 1600m of champagne gravel with dreamy switchbacks in the downhill! Enjoy 😊. The tour loops directly back to the train station for easy travel further.
