Mountain Biking: Since 2001 the Lungau area has expanded its already substantial mountain bike network. Fifteen newly accessible, continuous, uniformly labelled mountain bike routes, covering a total length of over 560 km on diversified routes in Lungau’s mountains are waiting to be discovered. The quiet valley roads offer less strenuous biking for those who wish to conserve energy!
Amateurs and pros alike have over hundreds of kilometres to challenge in the mountains. You will be rewarded for your athletic efforts with the unforgettable experience of the province of Salzburg’s environment.
The climate of Lungau enhances your health! A holiday in Lungau is twice as healthy because of its location at an altitude of over 1,000 m above sea level. Most recent studies have shown that a vacation at this altitude has resulted positively on one’s health: the production of red corpuscles is stimulated and a longer vacation has proven sustained weight loss.
Bikes can be hired locally.
