Itinerary

After making your way to the capital of Bavaria have a quick tour briefing and bike fitting and then head out into the city and see some of the famous sights, the English Garden, the Town hall on Marienplatz and Hofbräuhaus.

Time to get on the saddle and start cycling! Peddle through Forstenrieder Park onto Lake Starnberg, where you will hug the lake to Seeshaupt. Enjoy a dip in glistening & clear waters with a backdrop of mountains that could be a painting.

Kick off the day’s cycling through the Murnauer Moos, a nature reserve which has the title of largest swamp area in Central Europe. After passing through the reserve, continue through untouched nature along the Loisach River until you get to Garmisch Partenkirchen. You will only have a short amount of time here, meaning there is time to take an additional trip with the mountain railway the Zugspitzbahn. This is almost 3000 metres high, so imaginably provides incredible views of the Alps.

Get back on the saddle to head upwards to the spring of the river Isar, passing impressive gorges sprinkled with magical alpine meadows. Next, head through a bright valley accompanied with a backdrop of extensive mountain views, including the Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge. Finally pass through Mittenwald before arriving in Leutasch, a place where you will feel the true spirit of Bavarian tradition.

Today’s route will take you into the Inn-river valley. Say goodbye to Leutasch on a rural road heading to hilly areas, until you have a fun down-hill descent of over 8km to enjoy until you get to Telfs. Go along the old river Inn towpath until you reach Stams, with an unmissable monastery. Next go through Haiming until you get to Imst, named the “North Tyrolean Merano”.

Continue along the river Inns today, on route you will see the Zams monastery and head on to Landeck. You will ditch the pedals briefly as you head to Nauders, where you will cycle around 100m up to Reschenpass (a mountain pass). Once you have enjoyed the views here, you will cycle downhill towards Lake Reschenseee and keep on going to Mals, which is a town of many towers. You could also stop in Burgeis at the bottom of Marienburg too.

Kick off your day with a trip to Glurns, a city with intact archaic city walls. Next head through the Montani runins, Schlanders and on to Merano. On route enjoy the view of some pretty castles and a truly impressive mountain (Massif Ortlermassiv) and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch.

Alternative 11 days / 10nights onwards to Lake Garda – Please contact our team for prices on this.
