Especially in recent years, a lot has been done in Salzburg’s Lungau to create an optimal range of signposted mountain bike tours for every taste.
Approximately 480 kilometers of marked mountain bike trails with a total of 17 routes - from leisurely valley tours to challenging tours toward the summit - await cyclists here.
"The Salzburg Lungau is predestined for all-round successful mountain bike tours"

For experienced bikers, this is a varied tour of three to four days, which can be optimally booked as an arrangement with luggage service, half board and packed lunch.
