Stretching from the Kaunergrat ridge to the Geigenkamm ridge in the Ötztal Alps, the Pitztal Valley offers some excellent mountain biking. Down in the valley there are easy routes for families with children, while further up in the mountains downhillers will find plenty to challenge them.
Rushing rivers, lush meadows and glistening glaciers shape the landscape in the Pitztal Valley. Some of the best riding can be found around the village of Arzl at the start of the valley, for example the route up to the Leiner Alm hut. A little further south you will find the Hochzeigerbahn cable car, which gives riders and their bikes quick and easy access to the riding above Jerzens. We recommend the rides to the Kalbenalm hut and the Hochzeigerhaus. Don't forget to stop every now and then to admire the amazing scenery taking in some of the highest peaks in the Lechtal Alps. Last but not least, the Pitztal Bike Route is a 41-kilometre-long ride along the banks of the Pitze river through the valley up to the village of Mandarfen at the foot of the glacier-topped Wildspitze mountain, at 3,768 metres the second-highest mountain in Austria.
