Two-Wheeled Adventures in the Mountainbike Eldorado of the Ötztal Valley

In the heart of the Ötztal Valley, an Approved Bike Area, lies the Hotel Bergland. This five-star accommodation is the ideal starting point for rides into the surrounding meadows and mountains.

Here at the Hotel Bergland we even have our own bike shop and bike academy where experts are on hand to make sure you have the skills and equipment you need to stay safe and have fun out on the trails.

Talking of trails, the Ötztal Valley has a huge range of options for mountainbike riders to choose from. All in all there are 880 kilometres of signposted trails for all abilities, from easy cruising to adrenaline-pumping singletrail. The trails also lead to many of the valley's most beautiful spots such as the Piburger See lake, the Ötztaler Ache river, lush meadows, glacier ice and 250 mountains over 3,000m in height. Ready? Let's go!

Ötztaler Radweg – Ötztal Bike Route

The journey is the destination: with the "Ötztaler Radweg", the initiators steadily improve the mountainbike experience for our guests. The official bike route gets (e)bikers off the streets and on to a purpose-built cycleway through the whole valley. A big part of the project (Sölden-Aschbach) is already finished and can be used anytime.

Guided MTB Rides & Bike Hire

The local guides at the Bike Academy Sölden know the region inside out and will be happy to show you the best trails and tracks in the Ötztal Valley. They also offer bike-handling sessions to improve your balance and confidence. 

Visitors without a bike can simply pay a visit to the Intersport Glanzer sport shop in the hotel building. There they will find everything they need for a great day out in the mountains, from children's bikes and e-bikes to roadbikes and all the related accessories.
