Mountain biking in the Montafon Valley
Holidays are for relaxation and letting go of all stress. This is best achieved by providing holidaymakers with wonderful moments: trips to places with exceptional views which not every biker finds or an extended lunch on a quaint Alpine pasture.

Biking for connoisseurs

Clear ground for mountain bikers at the Alps‘ main ridge. The Montafon Valley is a paradise for mountain bikers. A route network stretching across 270 kilometres entices mountain bikers and E-mountain bikers to discover the Vorarlberg Valley, the mountain world surrounding the peaks of the Rätikon, Verwall and Silvretta mountain ranges, on two wheels. This bike-leisure region offers everything from easy tours on pleasant hiking trails to challenging downhill routes across interlinking trails with carrying passages. If the energy in your family or bike group isn’t evenly distributed and the fitness levels vary a lot then it would be best to choose an intermediate tour in the Montafon Valley, for example the Ganifer Tour. On request, mountain bikers are also welcome on this tour. There are also special family tours and combo-tours which include the gondola cable car.

These passionate bike guides are out and about in the most southern region of the Vorarlberg as part of the guest programme MountainsPlus from mid-May until end of October. They can also be booked for individual private tours. Further details on www.montafon.at/biking
