Close your eyes, and imagine riding your mountain bike through the Austrian Alps. That’s quite a beautiful sight – and we’re ready to take you there!
The terrain is, as you can imagine, very hilly. Luckily, there’s a lift, which means you’ll have fun most of the time by driving downhill, rather than struggling to conquer the mountains. Also, this means that the tour is suitable for anyone regardless of MTB experience. You’ll get 4 full days of mountain biking with our guides/instructors, and a lift card is included all days.
You’ll stay for 5 nights at our partner hotel in Saalbach, where a delicious breakfast is included. The hotel has all the facilities you’ll need – safe bike storage, a bike workshop, and a proper bike wash.
The programme lasts from Tuesday, where you’ll arrive at the hotel in the evening, to Sunday after breakfast. That makes four entire days full of mountain biking, fun and socializing. However, we can also customize a tour for you, where you can stay as long as you wish. In that case, just write to us.
To get the best tour, we recommend that you bike on an Enduro mountain bike. Bring your own or rent a top-of-the-line Santa Cruz Hightower / Santa Cruz Hightower LT from us.
Available for additional purchase:
Bike rental of a Santa Cruz Hightower / Santa Cruz Hightower LT: 180 €.
Single room at the hotel: 110 € for your entire stay.
Rental bike insurance: 10 € per day.
Transport to/ from Saalbach, Austria.
