MTB action at its best – the Signature Trail Collection
@ Mountain Bike Holidays | David Karg
If you want to try out all the trails in the world, then you should check out the new Signature Trails from Mountain Bike Holidays. For an all-around carefree package with great trails, they are a must in the Alpine region. Whether you head to Austria, Germany, Slovenia or Italy – the choice is yours.
You can choose from a wide range of trails – from beginner-friendly flow trails to find your groove to crispy steep descents that demand your all. Whether you are a beginner or ambitious rider, out with your kids or buddies, and whether you like to take it easy or action-packed – the trail landscapes are as diverse as you are.
So, what do you need to enjoy these trails? An appropriate bike is your first stop, either a hardtail or full suspension bike (fully). We recommended full suspension, especially on the trails that are a bit rougher. The two suspension forks make it easier and smoother to ride on changing terrain. Protective equipment such as a helmet and knee pads are an absolute must. Additional gear such as a back protector, backpack and elbow pads are optional, but they’re definitely a good idea if you are a beginner. If you are still missing some kit, don’t worry! You can rent and test gear at almost every MTB destination to ensure you have as much fun on the mountain – smartly and safely.
Have you decided to go on a biking holiday? Great! Our top tip: Book early. In the high season especially (during the school holidays), hotels are booked up fast. Make sure you take a look at your calendar in advance so that nothing stands in the way of your holiday. We hope you have a lot of fun!
P.S.: The Signature Trail Collection is running again this year! For you, this means RIDE • COLLECT • WIN. With the Signature Trails Collection, you can go on a scavenger hunt through the most beautiful MTB regions in the Alps. As if the rides themselves weren’t rewarding enough, great prizes also await you at the end! So: Join in and win!
Ingredients for the ideal trail: flow + berms + jumps = driving fun. Add a pinch of breathtaking panorama high above the Paznaun Valley in the high alpine terrain - the perfect trail dish is ready! Incidentally, one photo motif chases the next on the medium-difficulty Flimjochtrail: the next social media profile picture is sure to be found in the curves with a panorama in the background and bike action in the foreground.

The Kitzbühel Alps: in winter home to a not entirely unimportant ski race and in summer a hostel for motivated bikers. Especially the trail bikers among you will get their money's worth on the Fleckalmtrail. It is natural and always good for a challenge, because its more than 7 km length and 1,000 meters of depth require a high level of stamina and coordination. Not to mention the panorama that keeps flashing. Enjoy the view - if you can.
The sexy trail in Sesto: the Demuthpassage. The route with its partially exposed course demands everything from you, but rewards you with beautiful views and a wonderful downhill experience. The trail, located between East and South Tyrol, also tells a story, one from bygone, bloody times. In this area ran the front line of warring nations - how good that the trail now connects more than it divides.
Karst soil can be “nasty”: In this area, this is often part of the soil conditions and therefore requires a good basic level of fitness - and coordination. But overall it can be said that all skill levels get their money's worth here. The trail near the Triglav National Park is a mountain bike playground that calmly fulfills its purpose: fun combined with a great mountain and lake panorama.
