Having worked hard in the background to fine-tune the final version of the 'Zillertal Trail'–a brand new bikepacking route in the Italian and Austrian Zillertal Alps together with komoot–a long weekend in mid-June of 2022 provided the perfect opportunity to recce and share the route with a fun group of komoot pals: Gaby, Max, David, Chris, Maria, Ali, Weronika as well as Belén and I.
Since this trip started on a Friday and ended on a Sunday, we attempted a pretty brave strategy; to ride and hike-a-bike the full Zillertal Trail in just 2.5 days. You can check out the daily stages to see how that went!
If you're feeling curious and want to discover more about the Zillertal Trail, head on over to the official Collection here: komoot.com/collection/1326555 and for the fine-tuned route in full, check out the ‘Do It Yourself’-section below.
Arrivederci, danke schön and have fun!

Ting ting! The 7am alarm clock and a strong alpine breakfast at Pfitscherjoch Haus initiated the morning of our second day on the Zillertal Trail. Descending into Austria, a beautiful and savage valley path guided us away from the pass, towards the Schlegeisspeicher glacial lake. We tried to ride most…

Time to complete the Zillertal Trail! On this last day there was one more pass to scale, after cycling through the valley between Lutago, Brunico and Vintl for about 40km.
The weather was totally on our side, and the early morning ride went super smooth. We purchased some lunch for the way up in Brunico…
