Cycle Tours with children
Biking and cycling? Child's play!
A warning in advance: If you put your children on a bicycle in Ötztal, you have to be prepared for the fact that the youngsters will soon overtake you. They learn to roll on their balance bicycles very early and the kids also love it. Cycling gives them the feeling of freedom and independence, after all they can control themselves and proceed quickly. Additionally, there are action and fun in abundance. They certainly don't reflect on motor skills training - we parents probably do…
Pump it up!
Three pump tracks on the valley floor are also extremely popular with youngsters: Sunny and Rollin' in Sölden, home of the BIKE REPUBLIC. Another pump track can be found in Oetz right on the Ötztal Cycle Trail and only a stone's throw away from the base station of Acherkogel mountain gondola, adjacent to the adventurous outdoor swimming pool and the Kids Park Oetz. And as if that weren't enough: At the gondola's top station in Hochoetz, children can explore the giant WIDIVERSUM adventure land in a natural setting at 2020 meters altitude.
Biking in summer has already become the matching sports to skiing in winter. Our expert bike schools have been offering a special program for young people already for several years. The youngest ones start on the valley floor while the older and more advanced kids already hit the trails of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN.
Ötztal Cycle Trail with kids & Excursion Sites
The Ötztal Cycle Trail is also perfect for families with children. Not only because it travels through exciting landscapes away from busy roads - it also leads directly past the most popular family excursion destinations within the valley: From the Apple Mile in Haiming to the adventure swimming pool and WIDI Kids Park Oetz, further on to the Ötzi Village and the Birds of Prey Park. And what's best, if you stay at one of the 320 Ötztal Premium Card partner accommodations you also enjoy free admission to many swimming baths and leisure areas.
