Silvretta 3-lake tour | 45.4 km

Do you like to ride your bike every now and then, but don’t want to make it a race and would rather marvel at the surrounding fields and forests? Then this route will give you particular pleasure. By the way, this tour only takes 3.5 hours on an e-bike.

From Gaschurn it goes slightly uphill to Partenen, the easternmost inhabited point of the Montafon. After the tollbooth, the asphalt road takes you through the fairytale Ganifertal to the Kopssee. It can also get a bit steeper here. At the Zeinisjoch you cross the state border and a fast descent begins on the left side of the Zeinisbach into the Paznauntal in the neighboring state of Tyrol. From Wirl/Galtür, the tour takes you along the Silvretta High Alpine Road up to the Silvrettasee at more than 2,000 m. Then it goes down the valley on the winding toll road back to Partenen.
