This conditionally demanding Transalp leads us in seven stages from Fieberbrunn to Riva del Garda. Among other things, we roam the biking area around Saalbach Hinterglemm, conquer the Glockner Road and cycle through the fantastic landscape of the Dolomites.

The crossing of the Alps starts in Fieberbrunn in the beautiful Pillerseetal. From here we reach the famous biking area around Saalbach Hinterglemm via the Spielberghaus. On the Pinzgauer walk we reach the famous ski resort Kaprun, climb the Glocknerstraße to the Hochtor and roll down to the sunny city of Lienz. First we continue on the wonderful Pustertal cycle path, pass the high plateau Prato Piazza and enter the former venue of the Olympic Winter Games, Cortina d'Ampezzo. Now we are in the heart of the Dolomites and cycle on fantastic paths through the breathtaking landscape of the probably most beautiful mountain range of the Alps. The crowning glory of this transalp is the downhill from Monte Brugnolo to the Garda Lake plain. The tour is demanding in terms of fitness and requires a safe handling of the bike, as we get some technical, but mainly flowing trails under the tires.
