Spring has already arrived and summer is getting closer and closer. The perfect time to enjoy the sun in the nature and to be active! In the summer season, the region Zell am See-Kaprun is turning into a real wonderland of opportunities. Doesn’t matter if you plan to hike up to Schmittenhöhe, chill at the Zeller lake or want to explore the area by bike – there are activities for everyone. And especially for the ones who love to bike, our region is perfect and more special than you think.
The bike tour around the lake is very popular and you will see many motivated bikers there. The mountain-bikers and e-bikers prefer going on beautiful bike tours up to our mountains and huts. For the racing guys the region Zell am See-Kaprun has some challenging and awesome mountain passes. The “Großglockner Hochaplenstraße” will definitely call for endurance and will lead you to the world of the lofty mountain.
On tour and trail with the mountainbike
The mountainbike area Pinzgau is very unique. Round the lake you’ll find numerous ways up to mountain pastures. Crest the famous “Hundstein” and enjoy the view to the lake. Lovers of spring deflection and real freeride-trail-action go in cable car to Kitzsteinhorn and “rock” the famous trails called “Geißstein-Trail”, “Wüstlau-Trail” or “Bachler-Trail”. Too much? So just take your e-bike and cruise to a comfortable hut and try some delicious food of the region – you won’t regret!
The most beautiful mountain passes by e-bike or racing bike
You have a racing bike with you? Swing on it and explore the stunning mountain passes between “Hochkönig” and “Großglockner”. Once a year there is also a race at “Großglockner Hochalpenstraße” where a “Glockner-King” will be crowned. If you prefer going up the exhausting way on your own, there will be plenty of time in summer. You can also ask your time then. The racingbike tour to “Hochkönig” goes from Zell am See to Maria Alm and Dienten and is one of the most beautiful tours in Salzburg. That’s one of the reason why it’s the tour of the famous Ironman 70.3.
