In cooperation with the Salzkammergut Mountain Bike Competence Center we do not only offer tours with experienced guides but also seminars regarding professional riding techniques.
Then you are well prepared for such spectacular excursions as the Feuerkogel downhill mountain bike trail. Before you start your downhill ride, which is about 6 km long, you and your bike are transported to an elevation of almost 1600 m by cable car. The starting point is a little bit above the station of the cable car. During your ride you will cross steep alpine meadows, ski slopes free of snow and rustic wooden ramps across pasture fences.
When cycling in the surroundings of lake Traunsee every guest will find what he expects from a perfect biking vacation.
Explore the Salzkammergut with an e-bike
It is very relaxing to explore the region on the saddle of an e-bike. With the "tailwind" of the soundless electric motor ascending slopes appear less threatening.
Even less experienced cyclists are capable of an amazing performance on e-bikes. You can explore the scenic lakes and the fascinating viewing points of the Salzkammergut with the additional power of the motor.
There is never the risk to run out of juice. A network of battery changing stations will ensure that you stay mobile in the entire region. The combination of light exercise and exploring the surroundings is particularly pleasant.
