Mountain biking expertise in the Hotel Edelweiss****S
The love to our great mountains and the love to the sport connects us! The EDELWEISS GROSSARL tour guide family team lead you through the valley, home to 40 alpine pastures: exciting tours on 160 km of marked tracks.
My name is Peter Hettegger, I am 32 and, together with my father Peter, I run the HOTEL EDELWEISS in Großarl. We have made it our aim to provide our guests with a high-quality and individual mountain biking programme, but in doing so retaining a personal aspect. We are keen bikers ourselves and love a good tour. What this all means is that our family mountain bike team of 4 (with my wife Karin, my uncle Hans and Daniel too) is available to you for help and advice in your MTB tour planning and of course also in taking you to the most beautiful places in the Grossarl region (on a bike naturally!).
Exploring the wonderful Großarl mountains on a bike, and in doing so always having wonderful views of the local scenery, is a gift that we appreciate very much and look after with great care.
Biking is our passion, and proudly arriving at one of the cosy Alpine inns up in the mountains and looking back over the route that you have travelled is a great feeling, and it is exactly this that we want to share with our guests.
You are sure to love the various mountain biking routes and the different difficulties of the tours available. We design our programme from week to weak to be as individually tailored as possible to our guests. There are a total of 160 km of marked mountain biking available, 16 of the Alpine Inns are reachable by bike from the valley, and the more than 10,000 vertical metres waiting to be conquered present a real challenge. Here are some of our favourite tours and Alpine Inns that can be reached by mountain bike: Aigenalm-Paulhütte, Aualm, Bachalm, Bichlalm, Breitenebenalm, Großwildalm, Halmoosalm, Harbachalm, Hub-Grundalm, Karseggalm , Loosbühelalm, Maurachalm, Rothofalm, Reitalm, Unterwandalm.
We look forward to being able to explore this beautiful area with you, and combine some sport and leisure, with refreshment stops in traditional Alpine inns. We can certainly be sure of one thing: you will love it!

Bike tours in the area around the hotel
Mountain bike tours are the focus of any biking holiday. Mountain bikers who take part in the guided bike tours can be sure of safety, expertise, and a great experience with our trained guides. Mountain bikers who prefer not to join the guided bike tours will benefit from insider tips from the locals, the detailed maps, and above all the GPS bike tours.
GPS tours are a great help for orientation off-road. Select your personal tour programme from one of the largest selections in the Alps.
Simply download the GPS tour that you want, of the appropriate level of difficulty - easy, moderate, or difficult - and then begin your mountain bike tour on your own steam.
You will find a selection of 5 mountain bike tours here and there are further tours available at the hotel.
Bike tour descriptions are only available in German - we are sorry.
