MTB routes & trails for every taste
Some people love a good challenge and want to ride every single kilometre up to the summit themselves. Others are looking for an adrenaline kick and prefer the comfortable way of getting up to the summit by cable car just so they can then experience the downhill thrill. Either way – in Ischgl, you can do whatever it is that you enjoy. And so you’ll have an easier time to find your way around at the Silvretta Arena, our bike experts have categorised the MTB routes into 3 types.
Classic routes for beginners & advanced riders
Beginners and advanced touring riders and road bike riders love the forest and asphalt routes! Little to high ascent ratio and only few single trails on the downhill parts provide the classic mountain bike feeling in Ischgl. If you want, you can use the cable car for the ascent. Panorama- and pleasure-loving riders get to take a little breather at one of the many rustic huts. The primary focus of these classic tours is experiencing nature to the fullest.
Enduro routes for true allrounders
Forest trails on the way up and single trails on the way down, freeride marathons, cable car tours or vertriding: enduro riders are true allrounders. And those get spoiled with plenty of diverse highlights in and around Ischgl! Fun on the trail with friends and lasting memories of your time in nature guaranteed. A good level of aerobic endurance and riding technique are definitely an advantage, though!
Big-mountain routes for discerning riders
The big-mountain routes are a must for all those who love to exert themselves! You get to look forward to long and high-alpine (cable car) enduro routes on which the region’s most beautiful single trail tours are summarized. Difficult enduro routes with plenty of metres in altitude covered – up and down – along with challenging descents are also part of this category. The supreme discipline of tours – what else?
Tip: If you would live to take a little break from biking, you can use the cable cars for free with the Silvretta Card all inclusive (and there’s lots of other advantages, too)!
