In this Collection, we present the eLight version of the legendary "KAT Bike" classic. The four stages will take you on an unforgettable adventure through the mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps in Austria. On your bike, you will discover breathtaking views, idyllic mountain pastures and cosy huts.

The eLight version of the KAT Bike is aimed at e-bikers with some technical knowledge and a good basic condition. The individual stages are also easy to ride on a mountain bike, gravel bike or touring bike with wide tyre tread.

Depending on your schedule, you can choose between three or four daily stages. With 15.5 miles (25 km) and 2,296 feet (700 m) of climbing, you can consider the first stage as a bonus stage to warm up your muscles. There are also two variants of the second stage from Hopfgarten to Brixen im Thale. You can put together your own KAT bike adventure flexibly.

You can master the eLight KAT Bike route on your own or book it as a package. There are 3 and 4 star hotels en route, as well as luggage transport from hotel to hotel, and a guest card which includes your return train journey to the starting point in Hopfgarten. Or, you can stay in one of the three Brixental villages Kirchberg, Brixen or Westendorf. With a guest card, you can travel free of charge by regional train to the starting point of the individual stages. Pleasure and adventure in perfect harmony – welcome to the eLight KAT Bike eLight!

    From Hopfgarten there are two ways to start the KAT Bike eLight. This one is a little bit more demanding because there are more vertical meters to overcome. For this you drive up to the very cozy Haag Alpe, where you can enjoy a little refreshment with the finest view, which you can take yourself by self-service. Payment is a matter of trust and honor - mountain idyll at its finest.

    Variant B of the second stage is a bit easier than variant A. And it awaits you with even more enjoyment: on the way you will pass some rustic refreshment stops where you can calmly fortify yourself with delicious regional specialties. If you don't want to go all that high, but prefer to take it a little easier, then this variant is just right for you.
