In the “Nockbike” region the mountains are known as “Nocken”, named after the delicious Nockerln or gnocchi. The mountains here are rounded, lush green and mostly accessible right up to the summit by bike. But the trails then are surprisingly attractive and spectacular.
The mountains here look friendly and hilly – but only at first glance, because brisk ascents with 1000 metres or more difference in altitude are not unusual.
Downhill cycling is available at all levels of difficulty, with plenty of options for beginners and freeride freaks alike. Experience the Top 5 of the Carinthian Nockberge Mountains in a unique 4-day tour.
Guided by the cycling professionals from the Sportschule Krainer at several levels of expertise, cycle along an unequalled landscape of mountains and lakes via challenging trails in the region of the Goldeck, Mirnock, Wöllaner Nock, Rosennock and the Millstätter Alpe. Cycling between mountains and lakes on the sunny side of the Alps.
You will live in the same accommodation during stages. There is a shuttle service for bringing you to the start of each stage every morning if necessary.
