First aid & medical care
Great help: mountain rescuers on bikes
Always be on the safe side: Four full-time mountain rescue experts take care of your safety on the countless lines and trails on the Republic's territory. In 2017, a highly professional rescue service for mountain bikers was designed and set up in cooperation with the Tirol Mountain Rescue and its local Sölden office, and has already become a shining example. Thanks to the expert knowhow and state-of-the-art equipment of the mountain rescue - in combination with an excellently trained, local mountain rescue staff - we can offer such a high quality level of rescue services and rescue chains. In the Republic the mountain rescuers on bikes - by the way, the first of their guild in Tirol - also provide for the early morning control rides on the trails. You can also find out here how you can support the mountain rescuers of Sölden and which basic medical care is available in Sölden.
