Guided tours

Mountain bike tour to the Hütteneckalm

We offer professionally guided mountain biking tours in association with the Mountainbikezentrum Salzkammergut. REGULAR TOURS are offered at least four times a week and cost € 25.50 per person. We guarantee that at least three of the tours begin right at the hotel and at least two skill levels are offered on the same days.

A further tour begins in the centre of Bad Goisern. Participants are divided into two to three different skill groups: changes in altitude of 200 – 500, 600 – 900 and 1,000 – 1,300 metres. Groups are formed on site in association with Helmut Simonlehner, the Head of the Mountainbikezentrum Salzkammergut.

Further regular tours with starting points in neighbouring communities are offered, too. These tours can be reserved with or without the bike shuttle service. The price of the shuttle depends on the distance and you will receive further information on site. The tours are THE alternative to become acquainted with the mountains and lakes in other parts of the Salzkammergut.

An overview of the regular tours of the following weeks can be found at the hotel and is explained in detail by Helmut. Highlights like the "Ewige Wand", "Hütteneckenalm" or "Plassen" are, of course, offered every week.

As EVERY mountain biking guide comes from the region, they know not only about mountain biking offers, but have a lot to say about the Salzkammergut. As trained mountain biking instructors, they combine every tour with a short technical training.

Programme for bike-free days

Twice a week, we offer guided mountain tours with our long-year hiking guide Dietmar.

A special highlight is the gondola trip to the Krippenstein – Visit to the Höhlenwelt (world of caves) – Have your photo taken by the peak camera at the World Heritage Spiral and send it home as an electronic postcard!

The 72 lakes of the Salzkammergut (for instance Lake Wolfgang, Lake Traun, Lake Atter or Lake Mond, Altaussee Lake, Grundl Lake or Lake Hallstatt, just to mention the largest amongst them) make it difficult to decide which one to jump into on any particular day.

The World Heritage city of Hallstatt, along with its salt mines, or the imperial city of Ischl and the Eurotherme there make it difficult to decide whether to bike or not. …and then we have the city of Salzburg, which is only 65 kilometres away.
