The short local tour – Silvretta / Bielerhöhe
The Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße leads in 33 hairpin bends to Bielerhöhe and the beautiful Silvrettasee. It is rightly called one of the dream roads in the Alps. The highest passable pass in the Montafon is at the foot of the Piz Buin (3,312m), the highest mountain in Vorarlberg. You can enjoy the imposing mountain scenery either on a hike around Lake Silvretta or in one of the restaurants and popular biker meeting places on the Bielerhöhe.

Vorarlberg Totale – The winding road over four passes in Vorarlberg
The tour leads with moderate difficulty from Schruns over the Arlberg pass road and the Flexen pass to the mountain village of Lech and further into the Bregenzerwald. Via the idyllic Walser village of Warth, you reach the Hochtannbergpass in the middle of a beautiful high alpine pasture. The Hochtannbergpass separates the Allgäu Alps from the Lechquellen Mountains. The route continues over the Furkajoch to Laterns – a winding pass road with some bottlenecks has to be overcome here.

Cross-border commuters – the demanding circuit in the triangle
An extensive tour over four passes (Silvretta / Bielerhöhe, Reschenpass, Stilfserjoch & Flüelpass) that lead through Austria, Italy and Switzerland. For those with stamina, this can also be done in one day, otherwise a stopover with an overnight stay is recommended. The absolute highlight of the tour is probably the Stilfser Joch. The pass road with 63 bends is one of the most difficult in the Alps. The “Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio” includes the Ortler area with its almost 4000 meter high peaks, glacial lakes and alpine pastures.
