Incredible panoramas, a real alpine pass crossing and a gigantic waterfall - the Stoneman Taurista truly is a first class mountain bike tour.
Alpine peaks as far as the eye can see. Grossglockner, Dachstein, Bischofsmütze, Hochkönig, Großvenediger - on the Stoneman Taurista the Tauern lay at your feet.
Whether on the Hochgründeck, the Rossbrand or after the Oberhütte - on this mountain bike tour you will always be treated to incredible panoramic views. There is a checkpoint at every summit. But your reward will be more than the hole punch in your starter card. Above all, you will never forget the descents - the best of which fly down narrow tracks against panoramic backdrops.
