A tour full of views amidst breathtaking mountain landscapes of the Val Müstair, Engadin, and the National Park region. With the Ofenpass, we also cross a 2000-metre peak.

On this tour we are travelling internationally. With Switzerland, Austria and Italy we cycle through three countries. Along the way, we gather a wide variety of impressions, be it lush green pastures and meadows, rugged rocky slopes, lush larch forests, barren high mountains, rustic mountain villages or larger tourist destinations. Highlights of the tour are the ascent and the associated descent of the Ofen Pass in the middle of the National Park region and the newly developed cycle path along Lake Reschen, where on a clear day there is always a view of the Ortler massif including the glacier. . On the whole, the Ofenpass is easy to ride. The road surface is impeccable and flat sections in between allow for a little relaxation. Only the last 5 kilometres are consistently steep, averaging 8-9%, but they are even and without enormous gradient peaks. There are definitely more difficult passes at over 2,000 m and the numerous views and the coming descent compensate. .
