    The Arlbergrunde is the most difficult and strenuous tour in Mountainbikers Paradise dar. The majority of the tour has gravel and trail routes, which aggravate the more than 2800 vertical meters climb even further. But you also drive through two of the most beautiful high valleys in this region: Verwall and Silbertal. There are a total of three major climbs to deal with. The rise between Stuben and the Alpe Rauz is the most extreme passage: coarse-grained, as well as stony ground, together with a slope of 19% demand you everything after already 7-hour journey. But even the very steep, but at least significantly better fortified increase from St.Christoph up to the Galzig has it in the end again in itself. After all your effort, you will be rewarded with the steep trail down to the Steißbachtal, but for which you should save a good deal of concentration. All in all a very athletic top tour!

    This balanced tour takes you from the village of Schnann to the foot of the highest mountain of the Verwall group, the Hohe Riffler. Even on a hot summer day, you can drive up here super, because large parts of the ascent lie in the forest, which provides sufficient shade. Once at the top you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the Parseier Group.

    Here we have picked out a simple Almtour up to the Nessleralm above Pettneu for you. After the good 500 meters up to the Alm you will be rewarded with a wonderful panorama. The Hohe Riffler, the Lechtal Alps, as well as the Stanzertal extend in front of you. Due to the southern position of the Nesselalm and its relatively low altitude, you can often go up far into late autumn.

    After arriving at the Rendl mountain station by gondola, you will descend into the Moostal Valley. Further you follow the trail towards Tritschalm over lush meadows. Arrived at the bottom of the valley it goes left to Rossfallalm and across the river to Trischalpe - both highly recommended and since the decision would be difficult, you best try both from the same!

    At the foot of the highest peaks of the Lechtal Alps (Dawinspitze, Parseier), this tour will give you fantastic views of the Venet region and, in clear conditions, even take you to the Stanzer Valley and Paznaun. Above this backdrop, the ice-clad Hohe Riffler towers impressively on the other side of the valley. You mainly use gravel roads, which are quite passable. A few short trail sections do not require you any special riding technique or condition and you can even master them easily as a short sliding distance.

    As if the turquoise-blue beaming Verwallsee and the Rosanne valley are not enough reason for a trip, a well-equipped bike park awaits you at the foot of the valley. In the Eldorado, you can optimize your technique on various trails in order to really accelerate in the surrounding mountains. There you can borrow appropriate bikes and protective gear and you are also constantly supported by experienced downhill bikers with help and advice.

    A charming small valley leads you to a more charming alpine pasture. The rustic Malfonalpe is a very special place where time seems to stand still and you could listen to the sound of Malfonbach hour after hour.
