Do you love to mix mountains and mountain biking? Then come to Paznaun in Austria and embrace this extraordinary landscape! Starting from the villages of Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See, you’ll experience unique mountain bike adventures.

This valley lies between the Silvretta and Verwall and not only has a wide range of adventures for its guests in winter but also spoils you with wonderful mountain moments in summer: lovingly-designed downhill trails, rustic huts with regional delicacies and even cable cars that take you and your bike to great heights. Paznaun is a true mountain bike paradise.

Our seven Tours in this Collection are full of insider tips and take you to mysterious side valleys, beautiful forests and idyllic alpine pastures. We’ve selected the routes to include something for all levels, from fast downhill stretches to bumpy climbs and flowing stages on wide farm tracks. If you’re not sure whether your calves are up to it, you can experience the unique landscape with electric support: simply rent an ebike on site and treat yourself to a bit of tailwind.

Paznaun offers wonderful accommodation of all types and you don't have to worry about food either, because the guesthouses and huts are looking forward to spoiling you. Getting here is easy: a bus runs regularly from Landeck-Zams railway station to the valley. Look forward to some serious QualityTime in Paznaun!

    The Heidelberger Hütte is the ultimate biker destination in Ischgl: Hundreds of transalp bikers cycle up here every day in summer from Ischgl to then reach the Engadine via the Fimber Pass. If you want to work out, you take the steep asphalt ramp along the Fimbabach, otherwise the cable car to the middle station. From here the driveway becomes much flatter, before that it is grueling steep.
