Do the 3 hour tour and enjoy the breathtaking environment. It is possible to take a ride with a free shuttle or a private car until just below the dam crest. Starting at the „Durlaßboden water reservoir“ which leads you over forest- and meadow paths on the northside until the so called Larmerbach. You then change over to the eastern coast line, until you reach the little brook at the „Schütthofalm“. Beginning from the Schütthofalm you next hike to the Finkau-brook past Finkau Alp-Inn and back again to the Schütthofalm. From there the hiking path leads past the „Bärschlagalm“ back towards the beginning of the tour, passing several alps and viewing points and finally over the dam crest to the „Seestüberl“.
Bike Tour- Schönachtal
This 11 km long and about 200 meters in altitude tour is also manageable for less trained people. Starting directly from the Traumhotel Alpina you ride along a gentle graveled road into the Schönachtal. The scenic highlight of the Schönachtals is the „Issalm“. That’s the reversal point of the tour. Impressing cliff terminations and at the end of the valley the Schönachgletscher. If you’re hungry or thirsty, the Lackneralm is ideal for a short break, to recharge your batteries. Bikes and biking gear are supplied by the Traumhotel and will allow you to discover the fantastic mountain bike trails.
..also called the royal tour in Gerlos. From the starting point towards Gerold Gmünd and then crossing the Brennachweg to Gerlostalalm to Innerertensalm – this flawless and strenuous trail with fantastic views of Gerlos is absolutely worthwhile taking. It rewards you with views into three side valleys: Schönachtal, Wimmert and Schwarzachtal as well as allowing you a peak to the glacier in the Zillertal Alps when you get to the top. A varied descent initially leads down to Ebenfeldalm (Refreshments Latschenalm) and further via a private road or over 3 single tracks to Gerlos. Take care during the last 4 kilometers as agricultural vehicles might be crossing your path.
