The 7.7 kilometres long tour to the rustic Padasterjochhaus (2,232 metres) at the Padasterjoch in the Gschnitztal Valley is rated as difficult but particularly rewarding. The beautifully situated alpine lodges and views from them reward you for your efforts in reaching this point at 1,200 metres above sea level. Ambitious mountain bikers reach this point in around 2.5 hours and enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding mountains along the way.
- This tour to the Padasterjochhaus alpine lodge is without doubt quite a sporting achievement that deserves recognition. The relatively long tour and the steep climbs involved combine to provide you with a truly wonderful mountain bike tour.
- Enjoy the delights of the ride along the in-bloom mountain meadows and, with a little luck, observe the reclusive marmots up close in their habitat.
- The fantastic southerly panorama views of the Zillertal Valley Alps, Stubaital Valley Alps to the Dolomites is a well-deserved reward for your efforts.
- This tour is also ideal for a bike tour and bike & hike tour with a summit climb to the Kirchdachspitze (2,840 metres) or the Hammerspitze (2,634 metres). The Padasterjochhaus is an ideal place to base yourself during the course of multiple days of touring.
