Mountain biking in Lofer
Fun on two wheels
Salzburg’s Saalachtal valley and the mountainscape of Lofer provide everything you could need for your summer holiday in Lofer to dust off your bikes and hit the trails. Ideal for leisure cyclists as well as ambitious mountain bikers who are looking for a challenge or a gentle ride on an e-bike – there’s sure to be the right trail for you. Cyclists have more than 480 km of beautiful cycling and mountain biking routes at their disposal. There is great deal of diversity along the flat and visually stunning trails in the valley, the Tauern bike trail, a selection of trails passing right by catered lodges and mountain pastures, as well as action-packed mountain bike routes with tricky trails high up in the mountains.
The sculpture bike trail
There are less adrenaline-heavy activities to take part in as well, such as the extensive 69km-long Sculpture bike trail which passes through the Leogang and Lofer mountain ranges and offers a range of quiet spots to relax, lakes and playing opportunities for children. After all that biking, you’ll no doubt need a little drink to keep you going, which can be found in plentiful supply in the many cafes along the route.
Lofer alpine world
If you fancy giving your muscles a little rest, you have the opportunity to take the Almbahn I + II cable cars up to the mountain tops with your bicycle in tow. Once up there, there are plenty of down-summit routes to the valley floor.
