Innsbruck - Salzburg Road Bike Tour. This is a wonderful road bike tour along the Alps from the former Olympic city of Innsbruck to the festival city of Salzburg. Enjoy wide valleys, views to glaciers and scenic mountain lakes along the route. The Zillertal Valley features 365 days of skiing and a mountain road over the Gerlos Mountain pass where you feel you are in the center of the Alps.

Part of the tour takes you to Hohe Tauern National Park where you follow the Salzach River to the romantic city of Zell am See, situated on a striking lake. On your rest day you might decide to bike the highest mountain in Austria or visit the famous mountain barrier lakes in Kaprun. On your way to Salzburg you'll pass through Bavaria. Take time for a boat tour on Lake Königssee to the pilgrimage peninsula.

Tour Details: For this tour, you should have a high level of physical fitness because there are some steep ascents, although not long distance-wise. Biking experience is important since the downhill roads on Mount Grosslockner have serpentines and can be dangerous if you don't know how to cycle steep hills. (HM = difference of altitude)
