Innsbruck - Salzburg

Four Rivers, Tradition and High Culture.

This bike tour connects two of Austria’s most well-known cities, in a way which is sure to take your breath away. With the steeply towering North Chain of the Karwendel mountains by your side, you cycle comfortably along the River Inn’s cycle path. Next you cycle inwards towards the idyllic Zillertal (Ziller valley) where you will cross the Gerlos Pass by bus transfer. Having arrived in the state of Salzburg you can admire Europe’s biggest waterfall before you get back on your bike and roll along a wonderfully built cycle path. The very popular Tauern cycle path takes you along the River Salzach to Lake Zell, where you will see the snow-covered Kitzsteinhorn mountain reflecting in the water. Now you energetically follow the river Saalach and its valley until you arrive in world-famous Salzburg. What are you waiting for?... Come and discover Tyrol's tradition and Salzburg’s high culture

Itinerary

Tour briefing and distribution of the bikes. Tourists come to Innsbruck to see the world famous Bergisel Ski Jump and the Golden Roof.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

Tour character

You predominantly cycle on paths in the Inn, Ziller and Salzach valleys. Occasionally slightly hilly sections with short ascents on natural trails. You cycle on beautiful cycle paths and small side roads. You only go on main roads for very small sections.
