The Ötztal is the place to be if you like traveling on two wheels. Whether you're a roadie, a mountain biker, a singletrack junkie, or someone who prefers a relaxing ride with the family—whether you prefer to move using your own pedal power or prefer an electrical assistant—you're well catered for here. And to make the region even more interesting, let us introduce the next big trend: E-hiking, a mix of e-biking and hiking.
In the entire valley, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to e-biking. The sports shops in the Ötztal offer easy and stress-free e-bike rentals—and as each shop uses the same models, you can swap your battery at any e-bike rental station located anywhere between Ötz and Obergurgl.
If you'd rather go for a hike (but would rather avoid having to take a bus or hut-taxi), take an e-bike to your starting point. Injecting an additional element of outdoor exercise into the start of your day can only be a good thing, while the electronic support will ensure that you don't overdo it before a day on the hiking trails. This new trend—one coined in the Ötztal—is referred to as e-hiking, and thanks to the great infrastructure provided by numerous huts and pastures in the region, you've always got a simple spot to store your bike. Then, once you're done, simply return to your parking spot, grab your bike, and enjoy the relaxed ride back into the valley.
The Ötztal rounds out its epic e-bike program with awesome events throughout the summer. The 'eBike How Workship Ötztal' between June 30 and July 1 is the perfect place to pick up some tips and know-how from professional cyclists—as well as being completely free to visit. Then, between July 5 and July 7, the 'Ötztaler Stromstoß' festival in Sölden is all about relaxation and good eating—the perfect combination.
