Mountain Biking in Defereggental

Bicycle tours for all tastes

Mountain biking in Defereggental means freedom, lots of nature and an array of sporting challenges. The entire valley serves up kilometer upon kilometer of variety-packed cycle paths and mountain bike trails, with all levels of difficulty for you to choose from.

How about a leisurely bike ride alongside babbling mountain streams, past playgrounds and appealing refreshment stops. Bike paths such as these are really popular with families and guests in search of some pure R&R. How fortunate, then, that Defereggental is home to such a wealth of easy cycle paths. But that doesn’t mean to say, we don’t have lots in store for the “pros” and ambitious cyclists, too. Tours to the Bruggeralm, the Gasser Kofel or the Jesach Alm represent just a fraction of the opportunities available to you locally. Particularly infamous: the tour around the Riesenferner, which requires bikers to conquer a distance of over 100 kilometers and a gain of almost 900 vertical meters.

E-bikes – for a laid-back touring alternative

Requiring you to invest less physical energy, it gives you more time to enjoy the surrounding countryside: If you prefer a more relaxing way to pedal along the cycle paths in Defereggental, you should definitely switch to an E-bike!

With the help of a small electric motor, leaning into the pedals and climbing hills becomes significantly easier. E-bikes can be rented out right in St. Jakob – simply stop by our reception and ask for additional details!
