Description

Switzerland and Austria are a dream team when it comes to panoramic cycling holidays. The cycle tour from St. Moritz to Innsbruck couldn’t be more varied – and yet the individual daily stages work together. Your path takes you from elegant St. Moritz over the Engadin to Innsbruck, the city with the golden roof, over eight days. Mountain panoramas alternate with the lush forests of the Swiss National Park, and the cultural offerings are also impressive. And the culinary indulgence? It plays a very big role in the Engadine and also in Tyrol. You have the delightful choice between the famous Engadine Nusstorte, Bündnerfleisch, Tyrolean Gröstl and numerous other specialities.
