Along the way, you'll be rewarded with fantastic panoramas, rapid descents and idyllic villages.
Route: This route begins directly in Innsbruck on the tarmaced Innradweg heading west. After the airport, it's along the highway on the northern banks of the Inn towards Telfs. From here, it's across the river, heading south towards Ötztaler Höhe. Turn right at the roundabout and head towards Ötz, from where the challenging ascent to the highest point in Kühtai begins, passing through Ötzerau and Ochsengarten. The steepest section contains a gradient of 18% to overcome. Kühtai is a peaceful place in summer with a few restaurants. From here, the route heads downhill towards Kematen along a litte-travelled road, but any other road users should still be respected. The route is flat from Kematen to your destination of Innsbruck, and we recommend leaving the highway at Zirl to join the Innradweg.
Variations: The route can also be completed in the opposite direction. Some tips for those who wish to extend the tour: A detour from Gries im Sellrain to Lüsenertal will test your fitness and offer further wonderful alpine impressions. Another option for mountain specialists would be the Haiminger Sattele - a challenging climb from the village of Haiming. Equipment: The tour takes you through high alpine terrain, where weather and temperatures can be severe. We duly recommend that you take the correct equipment with you, such as hats, windcheaters and gloves. Lights are necessary for riding through many areas.
