Sitting as the crown jewel in a ring of peaks over 3,000 metres in altitude, the Zillertal Valley is an ideal hub for those seeking breathtaking terrain and variety.
A wealth of trails awaits mountain bikers of all abilities, from novice to expert. Besides granting access to postcard-worthy views and fresh air, these trails will lead you to mouth-watering culinary delights: Bikers can work up an appetite taking in the Alpine splendour before tucking into a delicious spread at one of the 150 lovely on-mountain inns and restaurants. Choose your own adventure on four adrenaline fuelled and gravity-fed downhill singletrack—from mellow and meandering to technical and challenging, with mixed surface terrain, rooty sections and fast descents, aptly named “Hell’s Ride” or “Ascension”. The RideAble Project, a singletrack that snakes its way from Wiesenalm down to the valley, drops 730 meters along its way. Discover how fun mountain biking can be with fast flowing descents and terrain for all abilities and test your skills on expertly designed switchbacks, Northshore Elements and pumps. Or work up a sweat on the trail that climbs up to Wanglalm Alpine Pasture. The hard work reaps maximum rewards as there are stunning views of Hintertux Glacier.
Special Recommendation: Zillertal Active Card Holders are granted one complimentary uphill and downhill ride on all operating summer gondolas and free use of public transit services. Zillertal Train lets you take a bike for free as well.
