Bike and cycle tours across Ötztal
Ötztal cycling area
Our bike and cycle tours are as varied as the valley itself: On some 63 kilometers, Ötztal presents both fascinating and varied landscapes. Wide open valley floors against steeply rising rock walls, babbling mountain brooks and the white waters rising from the Ötztaler Ache. Warm swimming lakes and high waterfalls, idyllic Alpine pastures and striking worlds of ice. You pass 5 different valley terraces between the valley entrance with its mild climate and the high Alpine regions brimming with 3000 meter high peaks in Sölden and Gurgl - or even better: you cycle past all these highlights.
850 kilometers of touring choice
Also (e)bikers will definitely enjoy the huge variety of tour options covering some 850 kilometers (and 35,000 altitude meters). The routes are perfectly signposted and scattered all over the valley. There are awe-inspiring hut and lake tours as well as bike & hike routes, tours for endurance fans or e-bikers. By the way, with a valid bus ticket you can take your bicycle (free of charge) with you from 15 stops of the valley-wide public bus line.
Ötzta Cycle Trail
But it is also worth discovering the valley along the 52 kilometer long Ötztal Cycle Trail. Away from busy traffic routes you can explore the valley's full variety. Often it leads along the Ötztaler Ache mountain brook, past sights and natural spectacles, into wild and rocky landscapes and towards idyllic places. For e-bikers there are three charging stations along the route, offering cozy rest areas that are covered.
Cycling excursion sites
A whole range of different excursion destinations can be reached perfectly by bicycle. If you stay at one of the 320 Ötztal Premium Card partner accommodations, many of the cultural attractions and leisure activities are free or discounted. There is one daily ride on all mountain lifts already included - whisking you effortlessly up to the WIDIVERSUM children's paradise in Oetz or to the James Bond pilgrimage site, 007 ELEMENTS in Sölden. Admission to the valley's museums is free - including the Tower Museum in Oetz, the Ötzi Village or the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum at Timmelsjoch pass. Not forgetting the Water AREA 47 as well as countless swimming pools and outdoor areas - plus the mini golf course in Längenfeld.
