Hohe Tauern National Park on two wheels
Action-packed downhill sections, the annual “Wildkogel Hillclimb” MTB event, the 270-kilometre-long Tauern cycle trail accessible just 50 kilometres away from our Smaragdhotel – it doesn’t get much better, does it? Actually, it does: with the free e-bike hire that you get with your Nationalpark Sommercard Mobil.
Are you new to biking? Then take part in one of the easy tours that we run three times a week. For example, the panorama tour with lift transport, the gentle tour to the Krimml waterfalls, or a mountain hut tour are very popular. On the easy tours, we cover a maximum of 500 metres of elevation.
Bike tours at our Smaragdhotel
After a detailed tour discussion, our bike guides will provide interesting insights into the fauna and flora, give you tips for your technique, and are always happy to stop off for photos. A visit to a mountain hut is also on the itinerary. The group consists of a maximum of 10 people. That means everyone is guaranteed to get their money’s worth.
Andrea, our “cheerful soul” and guide
When she’s not out and about with her family in the mountains, hiking guide Andrea leads families of holidaymakers to idyllic natural spots. She usually also has a little tour highlight ready, such as fishing, a barbecue, or a farmhouse visit. Our sociable Andrea plans her routes so that they include a laid-back refreshment stop at a mountain hut. She’s well-known amongst the locals, so she’ll often be found having a friendly chat.
Besides hiking, she also loves mountain biking and e-biking with our guests in the picturesque valleys and mountains. Regular guests appreciate the fact that Andrea always has something in her rucksack for any eventuality.
