ZILLER VALLEY – CYCLE PATH The 31 km long cycle path from Mayrhofen to Strass is almost completely flat, which makes it the ideal tour for beginners and families with children. If you get tired of pedalling during the tour, simply call it a day and take the train back to your resort. Level: easy Altitude metres: 125 m Distance: 30.5 km in one direction Terrain: mostly asphalt with occasional short sections of gravel.
ZILLERGRUND – RESERVOIR – HOHENAUALM “LITTLE-TIBET” This bike tour follows the quite road of the idyllic Zillergrund valley to the reservoir of the same name.
