Start riding in South Tyrol — steep trails in the Vinschgau Valley

The Vinschgau Valley is one of the many popular MTB regions in South Tyrol, but it manages to stay uniquely special. The connection from the shuttle, to the lift and riding feels more intuitive here than anywhere else. It’s not surprising that crowds of bikers make the pilgrimage to the Vinschgau Valley every year from early summer to autumn, to get their own piece of paradise.

We headed there too, fully loaded with several FOCUS bikes, in search of the holy grail of biking. We were not disappointed. From the shuttle trail to the Vinschgauer Triples to the absolute overkill of the Madritscher Joch and the relaxed lift day at the Tarscher Alm – we were totally overwhelmed by the variety of trails, the South Tyrolean landscape and the perfect infrastructure.

Leaving part of our souls on the trails, we returned to Germany as converted Vinschgau disciples. We will definitely be back.

You can reach the Vinschgau Valley by car or conveniently take the train. A long-distance train runs to Bozen where you can buy a South Tyrol ticket which gets you to any station in the Vinschgau Valley.

    Martin - Brand Manager:

    “We drove this tour with a shuttle. We still planned the transfer pieces and the uphills for you, should you feel like coping with some of them yourself. We were definitely downhill oriented and also wanted to see the Vinschgau flow triple (Holy Hansen, Tschilli, Propain).

    Martin - Brand Manager:

    “This tour is actually not a real circular tour: we were on the chair lift at the Tarscher Alm and took a closer look at three of the best-known trails in the Vinschgau Valley. If you still want to pedal some of the uphills, we have also entered the uphills for you here.

    “This nice tour is a great introduction to the Vinschgau Valley without a lift. In addition to the crisp uphill through the delightful Göflaner marble quarry, you can also look forward to pure downhill fun on the popular Holy Hansen Trail.

    Marco - Managing Director:

    “The first time I drove this 80 km trip was in 2004. Or maybe 2005? It was definitely early June because the scenery was a mix of green valleys with pleasant temperatures and white snow peaks in the mountains. It was a day that offered everything that mountain biking has to
