All those who want to become an officially "Approved Bike Area" must meet severe criteria and requirements that have been developed and defined by "Mountain Bike Holidays". Only regions that meet these standards are allowed to have the (one and only) quality seal for bike destinations. Ötztal has scored strongly in the "Tour & Trail" and "Enduro & Trails" categories and was able to earn 5 Stars (and almost the highest score).
Certified Ötztal Bike Region
Excellent biking pleasures
The Ötztal Bike Region is a true parade example when it comes to biking fun. Therefore it was awarded with the highest quality seal for bike destinations in two categories by "Mountain Bike Holidays". Only those bike regions that meet the high quality standards receive the "Approved Bike Area" seal. What's best, Ötztal has been awarded twice!
