The best tour tips from Rupert Schmuck, boss of the Forsthofgut bike hotel

"As an introductory tour I recommend you do the "Talschlussrunde" (head of the valley tour) with me – in the direction of the source of the River Leogang with a break at the Asitz cable car middle station, right next to the adventure park for the senses. An unforgettable experience for bikers who are looking for a bit of a challenge is the 5 Gondolas Tour "Grande Extrema", which passes through the Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang bike region. During this technically difficult and hard on the stamina route we'll be reaching altitudes of over 1,000 metres and heading 5,000 metres downhill. A tip from me: it's best to take a robust Fully, Freerider or Enduro on this trip!

Here are my 16 best mountain bike tours all around Leogang for your mountain bike holiday at the Hotel Forsthofgut. I look forward to going on tour with you!"
