Tour 2

Tour 2 – Gsiesertal – Olang

The bike shuttle takes us again from the “Rent and Go” bike rental site, this time into the beautiful Gsiesertal.

From the Talschlusshütte it is possible to ride on one of the cultivated mountain pastures situated approx at 3000m.

The less experienced are recommended to take the less frequented back road to the left of the valley in the direction of St. Martin.

The way down is bordered by ancient farms, some of them more than 1,000 years old, which are still inhabited and farmed today.

The cycle path starts a few kilometres before St. Martin, and although it meanders from one side of the valley to the other it is not particularly difficult to negotiate.

The small lake in the hamlet of Pichl invites you to linger and try your luck casting a line into the water.

We reach Welsberg over a path that is part asphalt and part gravel, and continue along the Olang Stausee (reservoir) back to Olang.
