75 tours with a total of 1.450 kilometres and around 40.000 metres in altitude attract mountain bikers year after year. Bike feeling arises without further ado! The tours in this classic MTB region, which has been named “Approved Bike Area“ – the only quality seal for bike regions – for many years, lead mainly across well-developed forest roads which are spiked with crisp trails. Blaa Alm tour, Hochmuth tour, Hoisnrad tour and Raschberg tour are among the classics of mountain bike tours in the Salzkammergut and are also a must in your tour repertoire. The World Championships in the past and the annual Salzkammergut Trophy also contribute to increase the high profile as well as the attractiveness of this bike region. A dive into cool waters after an extensive day of biking tells you that all the hard work is behind you.
