By bike through the Bluntau Valley

The bike tour through the Bluntautal is an absolute highlight in terms of landscape. The valley is bordered on the right and left by two mountain ranges, each is more than 2000m high. In the valley, the river “Torrener Ache” was dammed up in two enchanting, crystal-clear fish ponds. Unfortunately, bathing is not allowed here for understandable reasons. Nevertheless, the valley enchants its visitors at any time of the year with unique lighting moods.

Golling can be easily reached by train from Salzburg and so our climate-friendly bike tour starts at the train station in Golling. The tour follows a gravel road or a few gravel paths through the valley, and with about 50 meters in altitude it is easy to manage even for small cyclists.

If you want and still have plenty of reserves, you can extend the tour to the upper Jochalm – but then the easy tour becomes a very demanding tour with up to 900 meters of altitude difference 😉 .
