Lush meadows and tiny ponds are your companions on the trails through the Carnic and Gailtal Alps. Explore this gorgeous alpine nature on short and easy routes or on hour-long athletic challenges - whatever fits your style. In between two strenuous climbs you can find plenty of quaint alps to fill up your energy level. It’s a diverse collection of rides and one of the routes even takes you on a journey to our Italian neighbours. If you feel like you’ve acquired enough experience on the long trails, you can start testing your skills on the seven brand new singletrails around Nassfeld.

    Your 11.7 km long gravel adventure starts first at the valley station of the Millennium Express in Tröpolach. You will manage the altitude in no time with the lift and then find yourself on the highest point of the tour, the Madritsche, again. From now on it means: Full speed ahead towards the valley. Do not forget to switch down a corridor from time to time to duly respect the landscape. It would be a shame if you missed the stunning mountain panorama from sheer frenzy.

    With this tour we send you to the sunny south! Well, you get only a few kilometers of Italy under the wheels but after all, are the southern slopes. Your trip will be here not only international, but also on the natural side very diverse. You drive over just as lush alpine pastures as you dare past rugged rock formations.

    This tour takes you through the enchanting Gail Valley, along the banks of the raging, icy river. From Hermagor you climb on the Guggenberger road about 600 meters in altitude, which gives you almost the entire length of an overview of previously traveled valley. At the end you can of course look forward to a rapid descent down into the valley and then let it roll out relaxed on the way back to Tröppolach.

    This regional classic is for narrow-tire drivers and mountain bikers. Once the tedious climb has been fought, delicious delicacies await you up high and weary fought calves are allowed to rest. Downhill it goes the same way.

    On this newly created singletrail you can really downhill! The narrow path leads you through meadows and past a mountain lake, before the descent to Nassfeld gives you the last kick.
