Gravel experience of Nordkette from west to east.









FATMAP difficulty grade



On this route, you will have the ultimate gravel experience of Nordkette from west to east. You will be amazed when you realize that - after pedaling for such a short time - you are already deeply surrounded by nature and a completely different landscape than the city, which is lying just a few hundred meters below you.

The Nordkette mountain range makes Innsbruck one of the only medium-sized cities where you can still access the mountains in no time, which opens a lot of possibilities for any kind of sport - both in summer and winter - while living or spending holidays in town.

Taking the gravel bike for a spin on this route allows you to experience all the different sides and characteristics of Nordkette: gravel roads in green forests, crossing rivers and meadows, enjoying food and drinks on a few of the most popular huts in the chain and - obviously - admiring the view over the city from different perspectives. This route, given the elevation gain, the distance, and the steepness of the climb in different sections, requires moderate physical fitness.
