Mountain Bike Safari Stage 02: Pfunds – Landeck

Graded as intermediate to difficult, this stage requires physical fitness and takes riders on two major climbs from the Inntal Valley up to the highest point of the Tirol Mountain Bike Safari. The first of these leads up to the sunny plateau Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis and to the Schönjochbahn cable car in Fiss. The second big ascent starts in Fließ and leads up to the Via Claudia Augusta. A choice of gravel roads and trails are available for the descents back into the valley.

Trail description

Starting Point: Pfunds

The route leads along the Inn Cycle Path almost as far as Tösens, before twisty gravel and tarmac roads wind their way up to the sunny plateau of Serfaus. From there, riders continue to the bottom station of the Schönjochbahn cable car in Fiss.

Gondola along the Stage: Schönjochbahn Fiss • +43.5476.6239 • www.serfaus-fiss-ladis.at

After taking the cable car to the Fisser Joch, cyclists then head north and descend on gravel path that takes them down to the Schöngampalm hut. On the way to the hut there is the option of trying the Zirbentrail section of singletrack. From the Schöngampalm hut it’s then a gentle, mostly downhill ride on gravel until you reach the village area of Obladis. From there, the trail snakes its way down to the valley along Asterhöfe, on a gravel road that eventually merges into a paved road. Fast cyclists wishing to ride one more trail should not go all the way to Prutz but take the Sonnenbahn in Ladis to go back to Fiss and take the Schönjochbahn to the top once more. The signposted Frommestrail takes riders along the Frommeskreuz and the Frommes Alp back to Obladis. Especially the lower part of the trail includes some very challenging root-filled sections that are rated difficult.

Riders then cross over the river three times on the Inn Cycle Path in the Inntal Valley, before following the hairpin bends up to Fließ. From there, the route follows sections of the ancient Via Claudia Augusta Roman road, before entering the forest and taking riders along tight hairpin bends down to Landeck, the finishing point of this stage.

Finishing Point: Landeck

 

Tip: The Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is located next to the road that connects Serfaus and Fiss. Riders can hire downhill bikes, protectors and full face helmets at the bottom station of the Waldbahn cable car. Additional rides on lifts are not included in the Mountain Bike Safari Card and will be charged extra.

 

Important! The length of the ride and particularly the vertical metres are rounded and to be seen as approximate values. The data was collected with high quality GPS equipment and processed with professional software. However, deviations may arise due to environmental factors and technological differences.
