A short round tour ideal for families who want to explore the immediate surroundings of Sölden. The asphalt and gravel route covers only 5 km and 106 meters of altitude gain. A perfect tour for young mountain bikers who want to improve their skills. Alternatively you can use this track also for warming up before you get ready for a more challenging high Alpine route.

This lovely trail travels northwards down the valley. Before you reach the hamlet of Kaisers the loop route returns to the village center of Sölden and Freizeit Arena along the rushing waters of Ötztaler Ache river.

Author’s recommendation

Special tip: a visit to Sölden's exciting Freizeit Arena swimming bath and leisure center is always a great highlight for the kids.
