Bike Trails & Tours in Saalbach Hinterglemm
The Bike-Circus: Extraordinary Mountain Biking
Saalbach Hinterglemm is not only a place for superlatives in winter. The Bike-Circus in Salzburg’s Alps is Austria’s leading mountain biking region. Bike fans journey to Salzburg from all over the world to take advantage of the wonderful mountain bike trails here.
The best advantage of the Bike-Circus is that modern gondola lifts bring you up into the mountains when you don’t feel like making the ascent yourself. This is the perfect advantage for mountain biking newcomers and families.
Getting started can sometimes be difficult. For this reason the Buchegg Resort as Partner of the bike'n soul hotels have their own bike school. No matter whether you’re riding uphill or downhill – you will learn everything there is to know about biking thanks to these guided tours.

Hacklberg Trail on the Schattberg West

Perhaps the most “flowing” of the trails is the Hacklberg Trail from the Schattberg over the Westgipfel summit towards Hinterglemm. This single trail runs from the Westgipfel lift station along a grassy ridge, through fast passages, over small jumps and rolls down into the valley. This is a must for beginners and pros looking for some airtime!

This sporty freeride trail on the Reiterkogel runs through the forest, over rocky sections and has many cool elements. If you’re up to it, you can even veer off the Pro Line and onto the famous Evil Eye Trail.
