Vulkan Eifel — bike and hike

Mountain Biking Collection by komoot

The forest trails seem too long for hikes and the trails to the summit too steep for your bike? Bike and Hike is the solution! In the Vulkan Eifel region, our favorite outdoor enthusiasts have tested this combination successfully. We also believe that this region, where steep descents with lonely trails cross endless valleys, was made for exploring by foot and on the saddle. So we put together four hand selected hiking tours as well as four magnificent mountain bike tours, and you decide how you combine the two.

By the way, this characteristic landscape is also perfect for you to refresh your geographical knowledge: Fire and water have shaped this region, before the wind grinded the final touch to it. Along these tours you will witness the volcanic past of the Eifel, pass a variety of the 75 maars of this region and taste fresh mineral water from the springs Gerolstein and Apollinaris. History, picturesque nature and lots of highlights - these eight tours have it all.
