Absolute mountain bike classic in a fantastic landscape.

Please note the further description below.

In the realm of eagles, chamois, Lalidererwanden and Co. The guided mountain bike MTB tour classic Karwendelrunde is a fantastic day tour that you will talk about for a long time. The tour is for mountain bikers who are fit and want to experience the grandiose landscape impressions of the Karwendel on 2 wheels once in a lifetime (or for the 2nd or 3rd time) and to go a little to their own physical limits. The paths on which we drive are simple, not too steep forest and alpine roads.

Non-stop highlights

There are many scenic highlights on this tour, here is a selection: We move almost all the time in the Karwende Nature Parkl, the largest nature park in Austria. In the middle the lalider walls, the most spectacular rock faces for climbers in the Northern Alps. Hinterriss, the only permanent settlement in the Karwendel, is romantically secluded. Small maple floor as a quiet gem with nothing but sycamore maples. The Johannisbach gorge, the Rißbachtal, wading through the Fermersbach - look at the picture gallery and let yourself be inspired.

Unforgettable experience MTB tour classic Karwendel circuit

The Karwendel tour is easily doable for sporty contemporaries if regular drinking breaks are taken and the tour is not tackled too quickly. There are plenty of opportunities to stop off, so we have a hearty rest in a hut at the Karwendelhaus (1765m). In Hinterriss there is another opportunity to refuel and in between we take enough breaks so that we can roll back to the upper Isar valley with a big smile on our faces. In any case, Bike Guide Karwendel knows what to expect and guides you through the individual segments in a relaxed manner, so that the tour becomes an experience.

Seasons and variants of the classic Karwendel round mountain bike tour

The classic Karwendel circuit will be run from June as soon as the Karwendelhaus opens. But you are welcome to inquire whether the round can be done earlier. This is usually the case when the snow on the Hochalmsattel has melted. As an alternative to the classic Karwendel tour, there are tour variants, e.g. over the Fischbachalm near Krün (shorter, and with the option of a bike & hike detour to the beautiful Soiernhaus), over the Falkenhütte (1848m, longer, more altitude difference) and as a crossing over the Plumsjoch, possibly with an overnight stay on the Plumsjochhütte (1630m). Whether a variant of the tour is suitable for you or makes sense in terms of time, we are happy to arrange it individually.

And what about trails on the Karwendel Circuit

On request and with the appropriate driving skills, we drive some worthwhile trail sections a little off the classic circuit without any significant loss of time.

    Super nice and varied tour through a particularly great landscape. Afterwards you know what you did and that's a good thing, because you will remember this great experience for a long time.

    During our holiday in Mittenwald in June 2022, I was able to enjoy two wonderful private guiding day tours (E-MTB) with Dominik in the Karwendel. The Karwendel Circuit is scenically unique. These are moments you never forget. The tour was well planned by Dominik and he was able to teach me a lot of technique through his experience. It is adjusted individually to the participant. You get everything on offer - landscape, trails, steep ascents and descents and the opportunity to stop off is not neglected.
    I really hope to see you again soon on your next vacation 😉
