Here, you’ll find everything you need for a perfect gravel adventure: gravel climbs, flowing descents, countless photo opportunities and numerous huts and restaurants where you can replenish your burned calories and electrolytes. The 12 Tours in this Collection are peppered with incredible far-reaching views over the beautiful peaks of the Alps. You choose between short Tours and whole-day routes. We’ve even included a two-day Tour. Some rides have several climbs and descents, whilst others have one long uphill and a seemingly endless ride back down to the valley.

Even if everything’s in perfect working order, take care of the descents, especially on the gravel roads. Ride safe and enjoy sensational Tours on your gravel bike in the SalzburgerLand!
