OUR RECCOMMENDATIONS

  • Mountain bike routes
Gaislachalm - Silbertal

With a mountain bike or e-bike

With a distance of 19.13 km, 690 vertical metres and a duration of 1 hour and 20 minutes, the mountain bike circuit under the 3,056 m high Gaislachkogl is really suitable for advanced cyclists. First you’re ascending toward Innerwald, then through the hamlets of Ausserwald and Innerwald, onto the glacier road. After 700 m, cyclists leave this and follow the evenly ascending gravel trail to Gaislachalm.

Kleblealm

With a mountain bike or e-bike

The tour starts with a constant climb, starting on paved roads, then on gravel up to the Kleblealm (1,983 m). Grandiose view guaranteed. The soft mountain meadows of the Kleblealm have a fantastic view on the eastern slope above Sölden. The ascent to the medium-difficulty and almost 12 km long mountain bike tour leads via the village of Granbichl. Neither the initial asphalt road nor the subsequent forest path pose any great challenges to your riding style.  However, 630 vertical metres are more than just a leisurely ride. Soon cyclists leave the forest behind them and can enjoy the view of the Gaislachkogl, the centre and cardinal point of the Sölden ski area. Upon arrival at the Kleblealm, one has surely earned a break. Here you have a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains and can enjoy the quiet side of Sölden to its fullest.

Leiterbergalm

With a mountain bike or e-bike

Over 13.54 kilometres you’ll ride up 600 vertical metres in 1.5 hours. The exciting tour for anyone who prefers gravel trails that are not too steep, but due to two single trails it is designated as difficult. On the 1900 m high Leiter Alm you’ll find not only the perfect place for a break, but also a fantastic view over the beautiful Ötztal valley. As an alternative, you could make a stop at the Edelweisshütte right nearby.

Gletscher Express

With a mountain bike or e-bike or road bike

In this formidable bike challenge, you conquer 26.06 kilometres, around 1500 vertical metres and are on the go for 3 hours and 20 minutes. Even professionals wouldn’t accomplish this easily.

After a long climb to the Ötztal glacier, you’ll reach the highest point in the tour: The car park of the Rettenbach glacier at 2,663 m. Only there does the final trail lead back to Sölden. On the descent, there are also 150 meters of altitude difference to the Rotkogeljoch hut, so you’ll need to keep some energy reserves at the ready for this. Extremely steep gravel and single trail paths require your full concentration. After a short rolling phase at Hochsölden take one of the most beautiful single trails down to Sölden.

Jägersnotweg

On the quiet (lift-free) side of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN, the black Jäger’s Notweg awaits you, one of the most challenging trails. Tight hairpin curves, passages through the cliffs, sometimes wet surfaces. If you complete the Jäger’s Notweg without putting your foot down, you can really celebrate. The natural trail on the quiet side of Sölden leads from the Brunnenberg to the Windach Ache and via an uphill stretch (e.g. pushing stretch for about 10 minutes) to the Windachtal trail. At the starting point you can choose a more relaxed start and take the 1 km long Windach trail. You can get to the starting point via the tour to the Brunnenbergalm for example. The trail is also part of the Enduro Stille Seite C route.
