If you are looking for a suitable bike or cycle route: you will always find the right one.
Cycling in the valley and on the mountain
Would you be interested in cycling up the mountain, but does the idea of a tiring climb by bike put you off? No problem: the Penkenbahn will take you and your bike up, to the starting point, to an altitude of nearly 2000 metres. This is where light and easy tours, such as the "Penkener Genusstour" start, but also the "Penkenbahn II" route that leads past beautiful alpine meadows on the way down, direction Mayrhofen.
Are you looking for a real challenge? The Große Penkentour route promises substantial elevations, stretching over 1600 metres. The 40 kilometres long route offers ample fresh air and alpine surroundings and you can look forward to rapid descents This tour will take approx. 4 hours.
The Zillertal tour is a relaxing tour that we gladly recommend: the well constructed Zillertal cycle route starts in Mayrhofen, is 31 kilometres long and leads through the most important villages within the valley.
You will not only learn more about the region, you will also pass outdoor pool and adventure parks. During your tour you will be offered ample opportunity to stop and have a drink and/or bite.
