The most beautiful bike tours in Salzburg
Mooslehenalm-Viehhausalm-Igltalalm (medium difficulty, 4.5 hours cycling time)
From the centre of the Großarl village follow the valley hiking and cycling trail towards St. Johann and turn to Himmelsknoten at the Schiederhof. A forest trail takes you to the Mooslehenalm and on to the Viehhausalm, where especially children will have great fun. Continue to the Igelalm, one of the region’s “wildest” areas. Back again to the Mooslehenalm and you will return to the valley.
Reitalm (high difficulty, 2.5 hours cycling time)
Start in the centre of Hüttschlag and ascend to the crossroads. Here you can continue to ascend (to the right). This road leads relatively steeply to the Hebsanger car park. From here, the road takes you through the forest, then across alpine meadows to the Reitalm. After being fortified by many delicacies at the alpine lodge, the same trail takes back to the starting point.
Bichlalm (medium difficulty, 3.25 hours cycling time)
First you enter the largest side valley of the Grossarltal, the Ellmautal. At the Lammwirt you continue straight ahead. On the Güterweg trail you pass the last farms in the spruce forest. When you leave the forest, you will have a wonderful view. Almost without any ascent you continue to the Bichlalm, back to Großarl on the same trail.
Talwander- und Radweg (easy, 2.5 hours cycling time)
From the centre of Großarl you can cycle away both north and southwards. The first option offers a leisurely cycle tour from the centre of Großarl out of the valley along the Ache creek. After approx. 5 km, you reach St. Johann before returning via the same route. The southern trail takes you from the centre of Großarl across lush meadows and past old farms and romantic chapels. Finally you reach the picturesque valley head of Hüttschlag and the Ötzlsee Lake. You return on the same trail.
Harbachalm (medium difficulty, 3.75 hours cycling time)
From Großarl centre, the cycling and hiking trail takes you to Hüttschlag. The trail to the Harbachalm mainly runs through the forest. The Harbachalm is an old miner's hut from the 17th century. The entire Tofern area and also the Reitalm area used to be copper mining sites. Freshly strengthened by the treats available at the alpine lodge, you return to the valley following the same trail .
