Do you dream of endless climbs through alpine landscapes, the sound of your tyres rolling along fine gravel, rustic huts and sun terraces with magnificent views? This is what you’ll find in the Austrian town of Mittersill in the Oberpinzgau region. Located in the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, the area was quick to recognise that gravel was more than just a trend and it offers Tours to suit every taste.

The Salzach Valley in the Upper Pinzgau combines the beauty of two very different mountain ranges. To the south of the valley rise the rugged, snow-covered peaks of the Hohe Tauern. To the north, the Kitzbühel Alps, with their gentle grassy mountains, stand proudly. In the midst of this dreamlike scenery is the small town of Mittersill, which is an ideal base for all kinds of sporting activities. In this Collection, we present nine bike Tours that are especially enjoyable on gravel bikes. With a relatively light gravel bike, the Tours over gravel and asphalt, up to alpine pastures and mountain lakes are even more fun!

Whether you are already in top shape or just waking up from hibernation, you’ll definitely find a Tour that is suitable for you here. Some routes take you up the sunny side of the valley to the peaks of the Kitzbühel Alps whilst others take you into the valleys of the Hohe Tauern National Park. On all Tours, you find cosy places to stop for refreshments, often made from home-grown products. Back in the valley, you can go for a swim or a short hike or just recover for your next Tour. If the previous day was a bit strenuous, you can grab an e-bike, take a relaxing ride up to one of the many alpine pastures and enjoy the day on a sun terrace.

    The Hollersbachtal is a beautiful valley in the Hohe Tauern National Park. The tour into the valley is an absolute dream tour for gravel bikers, because significantly more than half of the route leads over perfect gravel paths. As in the other Tauern valleys, you can look forward to cozy refreshment

    In addition to the tour to the Resterhöhe, the tour to the Hörgeralm is the most demanding tour in the collection. You pedal up to 1750 meters on the sunny side of the Salzach Valley - so it shouldn't be the hottest day to do this tour. Once at the top, you won't regret it for a second, because here

    Is it hot and you don't have all day? Then the tour in the Lachwald is a good choice. With 15 kilometers and just over 400 meters in altitude, the lap is easy to manage even with a tight time budget and on hot days the section through the Lachwald forest on the north side is pleasant to drive. You can

    It doesn't always have to be the long, full-day tour. The tour to the Bürglhütte is rather short in terms of kilometers, but not a walk because of the almost 900 meters in altitude. Whereby the walk fits again insofar as the tour runs along a variant of the Pinzgauer walk, a popular hiking tour up to

    In addition to the Felber and Hollersbach valleys, the Stubach valley is one of the Tauern valleys that can be easily reached by gravel bike from Mittersill. This tour takes you into this wonderful valley, which is partly in the Hohe Tauern National Park. The tour is the big brother of the Felberberg

    Short, crisp and shady describes the tour up the Felberberg quite well. After all, for almost 20 kilometers you have to climb 620 meters in altitude on the shady side of the Salzach Valley. This makes the tour particularly suitable when the thermometer shows over 30 degrees or you don't have the whole
