Map Innsbruck - Villach


Tour profile, level 2

Mostly flat, asphalted bike and farm paths as well as little-used side streets and local through roads. Shuttle transfers to cross the two imposing pass crossings are included in the tur price.

Day 1: Innsbruck

Individual arrival. Welcome to the 3-time Olympic city of Innsbruck.  Although the Alpine town is widely known as a popular winter sports destination, you will be surprised by the colourful ambience that awaits you here in the warm season. Give yourself enough time to experience and enjoy the cultural diversity of Innsbruck.

Day 2: Innsbruck – Strass im Zillertal, approx. 45 km

The first stage on the flat Inn cycle path promises “Glittering” experiences. Accompanied by the Karwendel Natural Park, you cycle down the river towards Hall in Tirol, the former salt mine town with its glorious coinage history, and soon reach the iconic giant in the artfully designed park of Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal World) in Wattens. The historically significant city of Schwaz tells the story of its heyday of the silver trade, where the most influential personalities pulled the strings of global politics in the Middle Ages. Where the Ziller river flows into the Inn and a pilgrimage church sits high up on the rock is the municipality of Strass in the Zillertal, your first stage destination.

Day 3: Strass im Zillertal – Krimml im Pinzgau, approx. 30 km + transfer

Drawn in by the beautiful mountain scenery of the Tux and Kitzbühel Alps, your day today will take you on treelined bike paths through the Zillertal (Ziller valley) to Zell am Ziller. The upcoming 30 km mountain stage on the Gerlos Pass is an Eldorado for experienced "Bike Fanatics" not only due to its challenging nature, but also because of the spectacular views into the steeply sloping path that opens out between the Kreuzjoch and the Zillertal Alps. A shuttle transfer from Zell is available to help you master this imposing mountain road - including fantastic mountain sightseeing! An almost mystical water world welcomes you to Krimml, a small town in the Hohe Tauern, which proudly presents its impressive waterfall.

Day 4: Krimml im Pinzgau – Zell am See, approx. 65 km

Accompanied by the happy splashing of the Salzach, you cycle along the Tauern cycle path through the downto-earth Oberpinzgau today. In terms of landscape, the Großvenediger group, located on the southern flank, with its raised rocks and snow-covered fields contrasts uniquely with the gentle pastures and paddocks on the valley floor. The farmhouses and haystacks, which are kept in a traditional style suggest a homogeneous interplay of people and nature, and you are invited to linger and taste a regional traditional ‘Mårend’ (snack). The National Park Center Hohe Tauern in Mittersill beckons you with a variety of information before you reach the Zeller See, where you can reflect and end your impressive day.

Day 5: Zell am See – Heiligenblut, approx. 15 km + transfer

Good morning and get on your bike, another eventful day is coming! The few kilometers to Fusch on the Glocknerstrasse give you the time you need to get in the mood for the upcoming shuttle along the famous Großglockner High Alpine Road. The untamed alpine high mountains in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park with all its facets of flora and fauna can rarely be beaten in terms of diversity. As you go by you probably won’t see any ibex or other wild animals as they naturally take care to avoid the area by the road but the national park, far away from the pass road, is a habitat for numerous plants and animals that are essential for the ecological cycle. When you stop at Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, you suddenly dive into a surreal world of snow and ice, and Großglockner and the Pasterze glacier stand magnificently opposite you. Heiligenblut, a mountain village with a religiously spiritual history, provides you with a constant view of the impressive Grossglockner, and the ‘Haus der Steinböcke’ will help you understand the world of these wild animal climbing enthusiasts.

Day 6: Heiligenblut on Grossglockner – Obervellach/Möllbrücke in Mölltal, approx. 60 km

Today the cycle path now leads through the narrow and tranquil Mölltal valley to Flattach, where another, spectacular natural jewel - the Raggaschlucht (an amazing waterfall with walkway) - awaits your visit. Refreshed and cooled, follow the next few kilometres, accompanied by lush meadows and impressive mountains, along the Glockner bike path to the lower Mölltal.

Day 7: Obervellach/Möllbrücke in Mölltal – Villach, approx. 75 km

Back on the Drau cycle path, the route first follows the path to the district capital Spittal an der Drau with the Renaissance castle Porcia built in the 16th century. A real insider’s tip awaits you on the way to your destination: the Carantana Museum in the small village of Molzbichl, home to sensational finds from the early Middle Ages. Finally Villach - the stage of the Austrian carnival - invites you with its southern flair to linger and reflect on all the impressions gained along the way.
