Rettenbachalm (646)

Tour description

The 21 km long route via Rettenbachalm mountain hut ranks among the classic trails in the upper Ötztal. Passionate bikers find everything they could possibly desire, such as pleasant uphill sections, challenging gravel paths and some 6 km of splendid single trails. And what's best, you can choose from five quaint mountain huts for a wonderful stopover along this scenic route.

The tour starts in Sölden, pedaling towards the Glacier Road. After the first asphalt section you turn into the permanently climbing gravel trail leading via shady forests and lush green meadows to the pasturelands of Gaislachalm. A refreshment stop would be great – but there are still 200 meters of altitude gain left before you reach the highest point! In the foothills of Gaislachkogl's steep rock faces you follow a very demanding gravel path.

From the middle station of the mountain gondola a permanently descending and ascending trail leads to lovely Rettenbachalm mountain inn, located next to the glacier road. The adventurous single trail leading from Restaurant Sonnblick in Hochsölden down to Sölden is an absolute must. A short downhill section travels on the uncrowded Hochsölden federal road. A highlight not to be missed!
