Without further ado, it goes straight into the adventure. The Silvrettabahn first takes you to the Idalp. There you climb into the chairlift of the Flimjochbahn and get to the border ridge on the Outer Viderjoch at 2,752 meters. The route now runs along the border between Switzerland and Austria to the Engadin, the Swiss part of the Upper Inn Valley.But first you have to breathe deeply and with cold limbs conquer the two steep ramps to the Greitspitz (2,872 meters). This is where the famous SchmugglerTrail begins, which partly follows the border on the mountain ridge. That is very spectacular - and it gets even better. On lonely high alpine trails you first get to the very little traveled Fuorcla da Val Gronda (2,752 meters) and finally to the Fimber Pass (2,608 meters). You will partly push or carry your bike (around 45 minutes on Val Gronda, another 30 minutes on the Fimber Pass). The trail on the Fimber Pass is legendary and incredibly long.In Griosch you should make a stop at the first hut at Doris and Chasper's. Delicious pasta with homemade pesto "Wilde Wiese" or the wonderful cakes give you strength again. You haven't tried spruce needle or alpine rose syrup often either. An alternative just a few minutes later, with a slightly more elegant ambience, is Hof Zuort, where you can find a slightly larger selection on the menu.As soon as you have left the small hamlet of Griosch, the trail plunges into a wonderful forest and follows a wild mountain stream, which you will cross twice over suspension bridges. Several times during the descent you will push your bike briefly up the slope. This is also the case after you have left the venerable Val Sinestra spa house behind you. A wonderful single trail leads as a high path further out of the narrow valley into the wide Inn valley near Ramosch. Time to take a deep breath. Along the Inn, it's a relaxed climb to the Schwarzsee and the Nauders trails. If you want to save yourself the altitude difference by then, you can jump on the bus in Ramosch, or at any other bus stop to Martina, and save yourself the approximately 750 altitude meters to Nauders am Reschenpass.On the three-country enduro trails on the Kleinmutzkopf near Nauders, a few beautiful flowy paths await you at the end of the day, which will bring you to the stage destination. With a beautiful view over the town, I often make a short stop at the Riatschhof mountain inn. You can find overnight accommodation in Nauders in the full range between basic and super luxurious.Note on arrival:Ideally, you have already arrived in Ischgl the day before and can start your enduro alpine cross today relaxed with the first lift. Before starting your adventure, I recommend that you arrange the day of arrival so that you arrive at your accommodation in the afternoon. You can take the train or park your car there as far as Landeck / Zams im Oberinntal. Now there are two options: you go by bike via Tobadill into the Paznaun Valley and follow the valley path to Ischgl. Or you use the post bus. This also transports bikes. If you travel to Ischgl with bags and packs and your car, you can already memorize the options for the return journey. From Landeck / Zams you proceed exactly the same, although I believe that you will safely take the bus.The well-known winter sports resort of Ischgl offers great overnight stays at bargain prices that you would dream of in winter. On top of that there is a guest card, which has a number of advantages. In addition to numerous other discounts, the Silvretta Card also gives you free use of the mountain railways including your mountain bike - even on the day of arrival (if you want to get to know the Vellil Trail, you should sit in the Silvrettabahn until 3 p.m. to get all the way up.)
