Bizarre rocky worlds, breathtaking views, raging mountain streams, crisp cliffs and rustic alpine huts. This national park is uniquely beautiful. And right in the middle of it is a well-developed network of perfectly constructed nature and forest roads. 450 kilometres of enjoyment spread over 11,500 metres of altitude. Welcome to the Limestone Alps.
We present 8 tours, which together form a kind of "All you can ride" buffet for alpine bikers. You have free choice. You can cycle until you drop over in a 450-kilometre circuit, which you can spread out over 8 days, according to our suggested tours. But you can also take it easy, keep the lap a little shorter and make a 5-day tour out of it. Or you can drive the stages one by one and use the time available to enjoy and explore the great area without a bike. You can choose whether you want to stay at the comfortable Sternehotel or whether you prefer a rustic alpine hut to luxury. You can choose whether you want to explore the Limestone Alps on your own or whether you prefer to go on an organized tour including a guide and luggage transport. You even have a choice where you start. Almost all stage locations are easily accessible, even by train. Did we promise too much? Your most difficult task is to create your perfect Limestone Alps menu.
